Memphis made CNN's headlines when Mayor Lowery "fist bumped" the Dalai Lama. Now we're in the news again, this time for making a huge difference in people's lives.

CNN's Rob Marciano did a story last night on the collaborative between MLGW, the City of Memphis and Shelby County to restore power to cut off customers. Customer Jackie Mosley and MLGW employee Scott Campbell are featured in the piece, which also includes interviews with Memphis Mayor A.C. Wharton and a representative from the Shelby County Sheriff's department. It began airing this morning. The story can be viewed here.

MLGW also received heavy coverage from local media yesterday as employees continued to work 16 hour days in order to restore power to customers whose power has been cut off. Several hundred customers have been restored at this point. MLGW also donated 65 space heaters to MIFA yesterday, all of which were distributed to customers in need.
