Nu-Lite Electrical Wholesalers, an independent electrical distributor in New Orleans, recently launched its “Energizing New Orleans” program, aimed at helping local charities and institutions revive the city in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The program teams the locally-owned distributor with key manufacturers to donate a percentage of sales to a fund that will aid local charities and institutions.
“We have partnered with select manufacturers for our Energizing New Orleans program to aid local New Orleans charities and institutions, one of which is New Orleans’ Children Hospital,” said Gary Corales, Nu-Lite vice president. “Nu-Lite is proud to be part of this program that will help our city and our citizens recover and rebuild from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.”
Customers of Nu-Lite will contribute, through their purchase, one point for each $1.00 purchased from participating manufacturers; these include Square D, Encore Wire, Philips Lighting, Western Tube, Leviton Manufacturing, IDEAL Industries, EGS/Appleton, FCI Burndy, Ferraz Shawmut, Lutron, Advance Transformer, and Bridgeport Fittings. More suppliers may be added throughout the program. All contractor and industrial customer purchases of participating manufacturer’s products from Nu-Lite branches between July 26 and December 25, 2006 qualify in the program.
Points will be accumulated throughout the Energizing New Orleans program, and at its conclusion, the points will be donated to local charities and institutions in the names of all of Nu-Lite’s customers and participating suppliers. These points can then be used by the charities and institutions for needed supplies and materials, saving them money while enabling them to refurbish their organizations.
