Tri-Valley Haven (TVH) in Livermore, California serves hundreds of low income and homeless clients each month at their Food Pantry. TVH recently were offered a donated property next to their downtown Thrift Store, but it needed some work.
Asbury United Methodist Church has a long history of supporting TVH programs and hosting TVH events at their church. This includes renovating TVH Homeless Shelters and Thrift Store.
Starting in mid-January 2022 volunteers from Asbury UMC have been providing help with the Food Pantry renovation. They introduced significant electrical savings by replacing all the light fixtures with more efficient, brighter, and longer lasting LED fixtures.
They painted about half of the new location, replaced a toilet and vent fan and assembled shelving units. After the new facility became operational, they painted and upgraded lighting in the old Food Pantry location.
The volunteers then moved on to replace all the florescent lights in the Thrift Store and the TVH Community Building on Pacific Avenue. In total, they installed about 350 new LED tubes.
