City Light Contributes to “Stuff the Bus” School Supply Drive

Seattle City Light has partnered with Communities in Schools of Seattle (CIS Seattle) for the 2015 “Stuff the Bus” campaign, which helps more than 9,500 low-income students in the Seattle School District head back to school with needed supplies.

City Light employees and customers have donated backpacks, pencils, and other supplies to help students start the school year on a good note. The donations were then stuffed into a bright yellow school bus, driven by CIS Seattle volunteers.

Communities in Schools of Seattle collaborate with community partners each year to collect basic school supplies. At the end of the summer, thousands of supplies are given directly to Seattle Public Schools to distribute to low-income students. By providing these basic needs at the start of each school year, the campaign effectively eliminates a significant barrier that keeps students from staying in school and achieving a successful future.

Seattle City Light Employees Show Off Classic Cars, Raise Money for Project Share

Seattle City Light employees organized a classic car show and barbecue to raise money for Project Share.

Seattle City Light employees raised $2,400 for Project Share when they held a classic car show and barbecue Aug. 1 at the South Service Center.

The event brought together 33 vehicles, including a vintage camping trailer and a restored fire truck. Our Fleets office sponsored the event, and showcased City Light’s all-electric Nissan Leaf and the latest fuel-efficient line truck.

In addition to food and prizes, the Blue Angels did a fly over. (OK, that was a Seafair thing, but our timing was excellent.)

Attendees raised $2,400, which will assist City Light customers in financial crisis in paying their electric bills.

Everybody loves a little red Corvette.

The top was down and the hood was up to show off this beauty.

Old trucks never die, they just go to car shows.
