A&N Electric Cooperative will be holding a fundraising drive in our payment window to support Members Helping Members starting on Giving Tuesday (Nov. 29).
With the holiday season around the corner, please consider giving to Members Helping Members to help our neighbors in need.
Members Helping Members Inc. is a community nonprofit organization and was established to assist families needing assistance in paying their electric service bills.
Over 2,300 co-op members are currently contributing more than $3,000 monthly in amounts ranging from under $1, with the program’s round-up option, to as much as $10.
“Members who are interested in giving are urged to try our ‘Round Up’ option,” says Lori Shreaves, A&N Electric Cooperative’s member services director. “It’s a good place to start and has a minimal impact on the individuals who chose that option. A few cents may not seem like a lot, but it adds up very quickly.”
Members who are eligible to receive funding from Members Helping Members should contact their county’s Department of Social Services.
A&N Electric Cooperative, in cooperation with Members Helping Members Inc., secures funding through voluntary donations through the cooperative’s electric service bills.
On average, the program assists more than 200 co-op members annually.
Members of the cooperative who would like to donate to the program can fill out the contribution form here or speak with one of our member services representatives by calling 757-787-9750.
Eligibility requirements are also listed here.
Donations to the program are tax deductible, and 100% of the funding goes to members in need.
