Care for Community Intiative

As a rural electric cooperative, it's in our DNA to take care of our neighbors.  Our new Care for Community Initiative will bring employee groups together and support volunteer work in our communities.


Coming soon... help us support Toys for Tots!  Starting mid-November 2023.

Care for Community Initiatives

HOPE RanchOur first employee volunteer event brought us to H.O.P.E. Ranch located west of Chatfield.  H.O.P.E. Ranch is a mental health organization which utilizes horses and the outdoors to help people through their mental health journey.  They have a small group of volunteers that help manage the property.  Although there was much work that could be done, our employees were able to plant twelve small tress, removed an old perimeter fence, spread mulch, and removed low-hanging vines and branches from a walking path.
