THE SHINE A LIGHT PROJECT:
PROVIDING A RAY OF HOPE FOR OKLAHOMANS IN NEED.
Number of Energy Efficient Bulbs Purchased to Support Oklahoma Families in 2017:
At PSO, we see ourselves as more than just a utility company. And we view our community as more than just our customers. That’s why we’re always seeking out ways to make a difference in our neighbors’ lives, and enlighten the community about ways they can help too.
For example, did you know that over 40% of the people served at food pantries said they have to choose between paying their bills and feeding their families? As active members of our community, PSO wants to make a difference. That’s why we created the Shine a Light Project – to provide Oklahoma families in need with a ray of hope.
Since 2014, the Shine a Light Project has partnered with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma to help families in need lighten their financial load. Here’s how it works: for every PSO-discounted, energy-efficient bulb you purchase from a participating retailer during the promotion, we donate one to our food bank partners to help families save money on their utility bills – money they could use to help feed their families.
During March and April of 2017, just visit one of our participating retailers and look for the “Instant Discount” sticker to get in-store PSO discounts at the register on select ENERGY STAR qualified LEDs. What may seem like a small purchase to you can make a big difference to your neighbors in need.
Thanks to your generous support, together we have donated over 300,000 bulbs to food bank customers since 2014 and with your help, we’ll donate another 100,000 bulbs in 2017.
