Proceeds from the Pumpkin Run will help fund a solar panel project at Council Groves Apartments off 3rd Street. Council Grove Apartments is low income housing governed by a Board of Directors whose members come from sponsoring groups such as the Knights of Columbus and the Secular Franciscans. The project will help reduce the energy cost so that money can be freed up for other tenant benefits and the project will be used as an educational opportunity about energy consumption.
