Bright Invention Debuts its Senior Living Initative

“On Friday Spetmeber 5th, eight Bright Invention members took our form Click to the Samuel F. Green House in Elkins Park, a senior independent living community of Federation Housing, Inc. In a bright community room, we performed a slightly modified version of Click for about 40 seniors in residence there. Rising Leader Randi Hickey stage managed, ensemble member Kevin Chick had his Bright Invention debut, and, for the first time, Artistic Director Jennifer MacMillan played in with the ensemble!

By all accounts it was a smashing success, and we mingled with the residents afterwards who shared their delight and questions with us. White Pines will be growing this Initiative in the future, so if you have any ideas about senior centers that might support a visit from us, please let us know!

Our partner at Federation Housing, Kathy Sarlson, was extraordinarily helpful and supportive, and she shared these pictures with us!”

The PECO Default Service Provider program, or DSP, invests resources in helping low-income residents of multifamily dwellings to replace “energy-guzzling” heating and air-conditioning systems and appliances with more efficient models.

“I thought that this would be a great way for Federation Hous­ing, Inc., to conserve energy and save on their utility bills,” said Jeff, who personally pitched the project to Valeria Bullock, senior business analyst for PECO’s Low Income Usage Reduction Program.

Jeff sat down with Eric Naftulin, executive director and CEO for the housing agency, to determine which facility would reap the most benefits from this program. Together, they looked at past utility bills and selected the Robert Saligman House in Northeast Philadelphia, where more than 180 low-income seniors make their home.
