Place: Your Neighborhood
Did you know that there are many areas around the St. Louis Region that are not properly lighted? Studies show that providing areas with adequate lighting will deter crime and make residents feel comfortable walking around their neighborhood.
Join us on this very special day as community members, police officers, students, city leaders and stakeholders from around the region come together to distibute energy efficient light bulbs in their own community.
What are we doing?
This is an annual project that brings together members of the community to distribute energy efficient light bulbs in their area to light up the neighborhood and promote public safety.
Do you want to do this project in your neighborhood?
We will send you our Manual and give you assistance in doing this project in your area on this day. We can also connect you to neighborhoods that are doing the project close to you.
Request a Porch Light (STL CITY & COUNTY):
In March of 2016, Serving with the Badge partnered up with Urban League St. Louis to bring together over 10 organizations, a dozen police officers and over 30 students to distribute 1,000 energy efficient light bulbs to residents in the Walnut Park Neighborhood in North City. This project was a huge success and was featured in the St. Louis Post Dispatch, KSDK News Channel 5, Nine Network and several other news sources.
