We are proud, proud, proud to report that we’ve had just an incredible turn out of volunteers this year for Spring Break. Since it kicked off last Monday, we’ve had over 150 volunteers come out to help us install light bulbs all over the city. Being the small nonprofit that we are, this is a pretty amazing number. These folks have come from as far away as Pennsylvania and as close as Texas just to give their time to help our great city. Thanks to their dedication and hard work, we’ve been able to reach 122 homes in just one week! That means 122 homes in New Orleans have begun to save money and lower their carbon footprint.
That’s the good news. The great news is that it’s not over yet! We’ll continue rolling with volunteers all this week, and even into April. Just a giant Thank You to all the amazing people who’ve volunteered with us already, and to those who will come in the next few weeks. It’s our goal to change every light bulb in New Orleans, and we couldn’t do it without the help of these incredible volunteers. We’ll be sure to report the final tally of volunteers and the final total of homes that we reach once the Spring Break season winds down, so stay tuned!
