Students from EKU are helping make the Madison County Humane Society in Richmond more energy efficient.

The students donated more than five thousand dollars and their time and effort to replace the building's windows, washer and dryer and post signs with power conservation tips.

The project is part of the school's Environmental Education Program, the Earth Force Project.

The Humane Society says the new washer and dryer and windows will help lower their high energy bills. The signs posted will also help volunteers practice being more energy efficient.

The original washer and dryer were more than 20 years old. The windows were still the original windows when the building was constructed in the 1960's.
