MPBP, Inc. will hold their national conference from August 23, 2018 to August 26, 2018 in Washington D.C. Our 2018 national conference theme is “Team Work Makes the Dream Work”!
For our 2018 service project in Washington D.C., we plan to pay the utility bills for target families in the Washington Highlands area. Washington Highlands is an underserved, low-income residential neighborhood in Southeast DC (Ward 8). It is one of the poorest and most crime ridden sections of the city. Most residents live in large public and low-income apartment complexes.
Energy assistance programs are currently inadequate, forcing people to choose between paying their energy bills and other basic necessities. Only 30-50% of eligible households for energy assistance programs receive the assistance. Most utilities offer a low-income discount, but those plans are underfunded and vary across the states. The total cost of current low-income programs amounts to less than 1% of utility revenues.
Washington Highlands is not exempt from these staggering statistics. MPBP, Inc. would like to help! Here is our plan which includes your participation. Our focus would be to provide energy assistance for target families in the Washington Highlands community at $200 per family.
Our team, this team, MPBP, Inc. and you, can work together towards a goal of giving back to the Washington Highlands community with humility and respect. It is an obtainable goal! It is an achievable goal! Together we can make it happen! Because to accomplish an undertaking of this magnitude we must embody our conference theme: “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work!”! We hope we can count on you to realize our dream.
