On a cloudy morning in August, volunteers gathered at the old Jefferson Elementary building to pack hundreds of bags with CFLs and other energy saving material.
"We are working to distribute 300 compact fluorescent light bulbs with educational information about support programs at the Walker Park Neighborhood," said Arkansas Energy Corps/Sustainable Communities Coordinator, Melissa Terry.
Terry says the best way to save money on electric bills is to simply not use electricity if you don't need to. So with that message in mind, a group of volunteers mapped out their various routes through the Walker Park neighborhood and started knocking on doors.
The group distributed all 300 bags, leaving many at homes even though the residents were at work or away from their houses. It's a simple act of kindness that's helping an entire neighborhood keep money more in their wallets.
