ALBION – Since 2016, Lighthouse Wind and Heritage Wind have donated more than $3,000 to Community Action of Orleans and Genesee, to help serve low-income and disadvantaged families in the area. This year, Heritage Wind has also included a $500 donation for the second year of the Leadership Orleans program.

“Community Action is appreciative of Apex’s generous donation! This will allow us to serve our clients and help them become self-sufficient,” said Carly Ward, director of planning and operations for Community Action of Orleans and Genesee.

“We are excited about the work that Community Action is doing to build a better future in the area. We share the same goal of building a brighter future, and we are grateful for the opportunity to continue supporting such organizations in the community,” said Cat Mosley, public engagement manager for Heritage Wind and Lighthouse Wind.

Apex Clean Energy is working on utility-scale wind power projects with Heritage Wind in the Town of Barre and Lighthouse Wind in the towns of yates and Somerset.

Lighthouse Wind also announced it awarded a $1,000 scholarship to Austin Dick, a senior at Lockport High School who plans to study music education with a minor in jazz studies at Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester.

“He is so thrilled to be receiving such a generous scholarship,” says Austin’s mother, Kathy Bleiler-Dick. “He will be certain that it will be used wisely to further his education. His passion for teaching extends to a job coaching students at Flips Gymnastics, leading young children at church, and participating in a summer student-led jazz band. Austin would like to thank Lighthouse Wind for supporting his future in music.”
