Nine Area Businesses Install New Lighting at the Thrift Store

At 7:00 am this morning, a group of volunteers arrived to do a very special project at Union Gospel Mission's thrift store in Tigard. Nine area businesses, lead by Evergreen Consulting, donated over $25,000 services and materials to completely renovate the lighting at the thrift store. The upgrade will result in energy efficient lights that will save the Mission $2,675 per year in energy costs. The lights were custom designed by The Light Edge, Inc.

The other businesses that donated services, material and time are: Alderbrook & Associates, Capitol Electric Company, Inc., Extra Effort Consulting & Supply, ECO Energy Savings, PLATT, North Coast Electric, and United Rentals.
