Watts of Love brings light to SWLA

LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - Although power is making its way to homes in Southwest Louisiana, many are still left without power and are managing to get by in the dark.

After hearing about the devastation in Southwest Louisiana, Chicago-based organization, Watts of Love is here this weekend providing solar-powered lights. CEO and Founder Nancy Economou explained they’re bringing lights to those who need it most.

“There’s so much devastation, and Watts of Love is really focused on people that are elderly and living alone," Economou said. "Everybody wants a solar light, but we’re really trying to find the people that need it the most.”

They brought 600 lights to the community this weekend.
