An event sponsored by Ohio IPL was part of President Obama’s recent Interfaith Service Week. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack was joined by a diverse delegation of interfaith leaders to distribute compact fluorescent light bulbs at Maple Terrace, a senior citizens public housing facility in Zanesville, Ohio. The event, sponsored by Eastside Community Ministry and Ohio Interfaith Power and Light, was part of an effort by people of faith to recognize the need to be good stewards of the earth.
