WATCH Samsung and ENERGY STAR Give Back to Local Communities in Need in New Orleans

On October 5th, Samsung and ENERGY STAR kicked off its ENERGY STAR Day celebrations with Rebuilding Together in New Orleans. Rebuilding Together gathers hundreds of volunteers to help improve the homes and lives of low-income homeowners nationwide.

This year, Rebuilding Together in New Orleans offered the opportunity for ENERGY STAR partners to take on one house and make it more energy efficient for a local family-- naming it the "ENERGY STAR House." EPA and its partners came together to give this home an energy efficient makeover, bringing energy savings to a family in need.

"Samsung is a good company and I'm glad they're working with Rebuilding Together to do this for us," said Bertha Lucas, whose home was severely damaged in Hurricane Katrina in 2005. "I'm really grateful because I couldn't afford to buy another washer and dryer. I'm just so grateful and so thankful."

As the trusted resource for energy efficiency, EPA is using its ENERGY STAR Day celebrations to kick off its "Do 1 Thing ENERGY STAR" promotion. Projects like this rebuilding effort to show that there are many things that a family can "do" with ENERGY STAR, to save energy, money and protect the environment. Learn more at energystar.gov.
