After getting all of the materials ready for the project, Tim, Noelle, and I set out for Polson on Oct 24, 2017. During our home visits, some people wanted us to install the full list of materials we brought and some wanted us to just leave them there for later use. Either way, it felt really good to participate in the project because it felt like we were giving them things that would actually save them hundreds of dollars a year on their energy bills. Nothing surprised me and the project was pretty straight forward, but we did meet and talk with some interesting and nice people. While doing the questionnaire with a homeowner, she showed me some of her Native American sculptures and other paintings and bead work. Her art was exceptional and she said she taught art at the local college and her work was in the Smithsonian!
The low income homes we visited weren’t run down and I noticed it was mostly elderly people that we were helping. It was fun to stay at the hotel and go out to eat as well. All in all I had a really great time with the Warm Hearts Warm Homes project and I would be excited to be a part of it again.
