PRESS RELEASE:

Better Building Works’ Launches “Sharing is Power Project”

Better Building Works, Energy | Design Services in Downtown Roanoke is celebrating their 2nd anniversary with an innovative “Sharing is Power Project”, donating 10% of every energy assessment to local, small non-profits.

“We’ve experienced steady growth during a challenging economy,” said Co-Founders Monica Rokicki and Barry Martin. “We’ve always loved the quote, “Knowledge is Power”. We want to extend that power to our community. So we came up with a new quote: “Sharing is Power”.”

Shared value is at the core of Better Building Works’ mission. Over the next twelve months they will donate 10% of every energy assessment to four partnering nonprofit organizations. They describe their clients as smart people who care about energy efficiency, return-on-investment, and helping their communities thrive and grow. “This is a perfect way to complete the circle and return investments directly to some of our community’s most amazing non-profit organizations,” said Rokicki.

Proceeds from the energy assessments will be distributed quarterly to the four organizations over the next twelve months. The local nonprofits celebrated by the “Sharing is Power Project” range from construction to cultural organizations, and include:

  • Rebuilding Together Roanoke
  • Roanoke Foundation for Downtown Inc.
  • Opera Roanoke
  • The Greater Roanoke Valley Asthma & Air Quality Coalition
