Giving back is the co-op way
Electric cooperatives have a proud history of giving back. In fact, “concern for community” is one of the seven principles of the electric co-op business mode, and it is one that we at Petit Jean Electric Cooperative value year-round. But during the holiday season, concern for community seems especially important.
We know that so many families go without on a daily basis and struggle to make ends meet. This struggle can be especially hard during the holiday season.
There are many ways we can all give back to the community that go beyond dollar donations. It can be as simple as taking time to go through your closets and find clothes that no longer fit or have lost their use. Bag those
items up and take them to your local Salvation Army, Goodwill or church clothing drive. Volunteer for a local food or toy drive, deliver meals to the sick and the elderly or simply make a meal for a neighbor in need.
No matter how great or small the act, every time we give back, we strengthen our community. We are proud to serve you, our members, each and every day by providing you with affordable and reliable electricity, as well as supporting local community projects.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
