WAUKESHA, Wis. — The City of Waukesha is asking everyone to light a blue light outside of their homes through the holidays as a symbol of unity after the Christmas parade tragedy.

Thanks to the generosity of Waukesha natives Joe and Megan Schobert, as well as Batteries Plus, Home Depot, TNT, and Ace Hardware, at least 10,000 blue have been sent to Waukesha for distribution.

If you want to be notified when additional shipments of light bulbs are received, you can sign up for email notifications here.

Follow the City on social media for additional information and updates.

The following business will also be handing out light bulbs. Because supplies are limited, everyone is being asked to take one light bulb per home.
