Residents who stop by can choose one of the teddy bears to donate to less fortunate children across the Philadelphia area. They can also learn about how choice in electricity providers can help them save money throughout the year.

WHY — During the Christmas season, especially in this recession, many families do not have the ability to put toys under their trees for their children. Spark Energy is dedicated to supporting the community in the Philadelphia area. By providing 1000 teddy bears to the Stockings for Kids program, Spark Energy is hoping to make the Christmas season brighter and warmer for families in Southeastern Pennsylvania. By giving people a choice in which teddy bear they would like to donate, Spark Energy is hoping to educate them about what electricity choice means for them.
