Major Paul Logan and Bob Romo from ICECF talk about the capital campaign and the grant totaling $317,450
A clean energy group is donating hundreds of thousands of dollars toward the construction of a new Salvation Army headquarters in Springfield… with the intent of making the building as environmentally-friendly as possible.
The Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation is donating more than 317-thousand dollars to the agency’s capital campaign. The money will be used to install solar panels and advanced, energy-efficient climate control systems. Salvation Army officials say 10 to 15-percent of the building’s power will come from solar panel.
Even with the donation, the Salvation Army says it is still looking to raise an additional two-million dollars for the acquisition and renovation of the building on 9th Street.
