Community Spotlight!
Tracy Mehaffey of West Lebanon, Pennslyvania is a rockstar! Last year, she tried to spread the word about the Light It Up Blue campaign on Facebook and by buying blue light bulbs for the people who live on her block to install in their porch lights. This year, she wanted to do more, so she bought 150 blue light bulbs that she has distributed to other West Lebanon residents. Learn more about Tracy here!
