Harvesters and KCP&L distribute energy efficient light bulbs to low-income families

Harvesters and KCP&L are partnering to distribute 69,000 energy efficient compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs to low-income families served by Harvesters’ network of nonprofit agencies.

The giveaway will be held Wednesday, Nov. 12, 10 a.m. at Harvesters, 3801 Topping Ave., Kansas City, MO.

Low-income families served by Harvesters’ network of nonprofit agencies often struggle to pay for basic needs, including utilities and food. Energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs can save a household $40 over the life of the bulb. Distributing these bulbs through Harvesters’ network of nonprofit agencies will help families stretch limited resources to meet other basic needs.
