FREE BLUE LIGHT BULBS AVAILABLE TO SUPPORT IMPD
In honor of the men and women of law enforcement and to support the Indy Going Blue for IMPD effort, the Indianapolis Colts are joining with Meijer and GE to provide 4,000 free blue light bulbs for local Hoosiers. These light bulbs will be available from 4-6 p.m. on Friday, July 11, while supplies last, at the Pike Plaza Meijer (5349 Pike Plaza Rd, Indianapolis) and Southport Road Meijer (5325 E Southport Rd, Indianapolis). The bulbs will be available near the front of the stores, inside the general merchandise entrance. One bulb per person.
The Colts, Meijer and GE were inspired to organize this effort after learning that Central Indiana residents who wanted to join the Indy Going Blue for IMPD movement were having a difficult time locating blue light bulbs in the Indianapolis area. The organizations are encouraging residents to show their support for IMPD and all the men and women of law enforcement by changing out their porch lights with the blue bulbs on Friday evening.
*Note: Meijer is also working to make additional bulbs available for purchase Friday afternoon at their other Indianapolis area stores.
