									Save energy, save money,
support schools.

                                        Illuminating our success
                                        During the 2007–2008 school year, 92 student organizations sold
                                        33,133 CFLs and 7,298 LED holiday lights. These groups raised $88,200
                                        for their schools! This money was used to purchase classroom equipment,
                                        take class trips and fund special projects such as developing a rain garden
                                        on school grounds.

                                        These groups saved their customers $1,701,297 in electrical costs, and
                                        reduced carbon dioxide emissions by more than 39 million pounds over the
