Blue Owl Owner Challenges Local Business to Step Up for Pennies for Power

Local Businesses contribute to the Pennies for Power program.

According to its website, more than 4,000 Lansing Board of Water and Light customers participate in BWL’s Pennies for Power program, contributing almost $40,000 each year.

Pennies for Power allows Lansing-area BWL customers to help others pay utility bills by rounding up their utility bill payments each month. That extra change helps with one-time utility shutoff protection for customers facing adversity. With more people home than ever due to stay-at-home restrictions, more families are in need.

Now, a local business has joined the cause. Blue Owl Coffee, with locations in REO Town, Old Town and downtown East Lansing, announced it has partnered with BWL to help garner more support for Pennies for Power.

Owner Nick Berry has invited fellow business owners to step up as well.

“Starting on Black Friday, 10% of all bean and merch sales will be donated to Pennies for Power through December,” Berry said. “It’s my hope that other business owners will rise to the challenge to do donation matches or simply encourage their staff members to join the program and make donations.”

For more information, visit BWL’s website or call its customer service department at (517) 702-6006. You can visit Blue Owl on Facebook @miblueowlcoffee.
