Southeast Enterprises, a local nonprofit sheltered workshop that employs over 160 adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, will partner with over 165 locations throughout the Kansas City area to provide drop-off sites where the public can bring their non-working holiday lights for recycling. Once collected, most of Southeast’s employees will work to prepare the lights for recycling.
Last year, the combined efforts of Southeast, sponsors and citizens throughout the Greater Kansas City Area helped to save over 32,000 pounds of holiday lights from the landfill and keep Southeast’s employees working throughout the calendar year.
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor of this annual event, call Megan Gurera at (816) 353-2704 or contact us.
