Community Conservation Day Giveaways bring smiles to customers

MLGW Energy Technicians Mike Hamrick and Vidale Cothran handed out about 150 boxes with energy-saving goodies like compact fluorescent light bulbs, low-flow faucet aerators, credit card-sized water temperature testers and electrical outlet socket gaskets at the Peggy Prater-Harvey Community Office, 2935 Lamar on March 19. Several customers said they appreciated the Conservation Day giveaways.

“I think it’s cool,” said Vincent Brown.

After seeing the energy-saving light bulbs, Carla Jeffries said, “I’ve got a couple of them in my home. I’ve seen the difference as far as not having to replace the bulbs every two or three months.”

“I think it’s marvelous,” said Elmo Randolph Jr. “Just what I needed – these light bulbs.”

“Anything helps,” said William Thomas.

“My wife said get a box,” Eric Owens said on Conservation Day as MLGW Energy Tech Vidale Cothran helps him and Energy Tech Mike Hamrick looks on. After seeing the light bulbs, Owens added, “These are the ones I use.” 

“This is wonderful. We always need light bulbs. This is in the spirit of giving,” said Alice Hurt. Moments after leaving the office, Hurt returned: “I forgot to tell you. It saves energy and finances.”
