New Decade, New Lights!

If you’ve been out to our Warehouse recently, you might have noticed a big change – it’s about three times as well lit! The new lights were installed by Perfect Lighting Solutions over the space of a few days and the difference is sensational.

Before the upgrade, 40% of our warehouse lighting fixtures were at least partially out, and the supply room, where we store our materials and files, only had 5 of 19 lights working. With funding from the Ball Brothers Foundation, and contributions from many staff members to make the project go smoothly, we were able to work with Perfect Lighting Solutions to install over 50 lights in and around our warehouse and nearly 20 lights in our supply room. Our Warehouse staff put in extra hours on the weekends, finding ways to keep the space safely illuminated with the power shut off for the installation. 

The exterior lighting will allow drivers much more security. These lights are also noticeably more energy-efficient, furthering Second Harvest’s sustainability goals. New lighting will allow staff and volunteers to work safely and effectively in our facility to ensure that each community that we serve in East Central Indiana receives the food and resources they need for a better tomorrow.
 
If you’d like to see the lights in person, come out for a tour of our warehouse to hear about everything we’re doing, or stay to volunteer!
