In these hard financial times, some cities are turning to their communities for support to help clean up the streets and fight vandalism. The City of Yakima, Washington did just that – turning to the media and local churches to help support their cause, by raising the funds needed to protect their light fixtures with Vandal Shields®. Getting the resources needed to replace the light fixtures and protect them from future damage was a collaboration effort between numerous organizations including the various city departments, the local utility, the local media, local churches, the citizens of Yakima, and Vandal Shields®. With the community’s support and broader awareness of the problem, the city was able to ensure that the lights will stay on and the safety of their residents will not be jeopardized. We applaud them for taking back their streets and fighting to do what it takes to put their community’s safety first.
