When you make a #GivingTuesday donation to Westside Housing, you stand with those who desire to see equity in health, housing, and energy-efficiency. The amount of renewable energy and solar energy generation in the Midwest and Missouri is only going to grow. We think the benefits of solar energy ought to be available for everyone, not just for large corporations of wealthy homeowners who can pay to install them on their roofs, but for lower income homeowners and tenants in Kansas City’s communities. We call for the utilities and corporations to work with us to make solar energy available for everyone in Kansas City! To learn more about our unique #GivingTuesday campaign, click here!
