Service agency weatherizes Philadelphia home


Officials from the Multi County Community Service Agency (MCCSA) weatherized the home of Mrs. Alma Stribling in Neshoba on Oct. 28 in honor of National Weatherization Day.

City officials such as Mayor James Young attended the weatherization, and proclaimed Oct. 30 as “Weatherization Day” in Philadelphia.   

Amy Chamberlin, case manager for MCCSA, said communities around the country mark Oct. 30 as National Weatherization Day, and this year, the Meridian-based company chose to weatherize a Philadelphia home on Road 212. 

On the morning of October 28, 2022, Multi County’s certified Energy Auditor and Quality Control Inspector Desirka Walker along with Quincy Lenton, Chamberlin and contracted certified HVAC and weatherization workers and crews met at the home of Alma Stribling at 10 a.m. to complete the weatherization process.

“We have been weatherizing homes in the Philadelphia and Neshoba County area since approximately 1999,” Chamberlin said. “The weatherization process works like a protective shield around the home that keeps our elderly, disabled, and single parents with small children comfortable regardless of the season.”

State and Local Weatherization Assistance Program agencies plan events and action each year to showcase National Weatherization Day. The day is an opportunity to highlight the impact of the program which reduces home energy and saves money, and improves the health and safety of homes for MCCSA’s clients.

“Thanks to the Honorable Mayor James Young for his attendance and the proclamation proclaiming October 30, 2022 as Weatherization Day,” Chamberlin said. “We encourage everyone that is interested in getting their home weatherized to contact your local Multi County Community Service Agency Office for details.”
