Concern For Community Shines In Co-Op Cares Food Drive - Boise City Presentation
During its annual Co-op Cares Food Drive, TCEC employees raised funds and the cooperative matched them to raise $3,140. Four food pantries in local communities will each receive $785 thanks to the generosity of the cooperative and its employees.
TCEC’s donation was delivered to Cimarron County Food Pantry in Boise City on a very cold day, February 4. The pantry survives solely on donations.
“We are thankful for donations, as the food pantry does not receive any state or federal funds,” said Joyce Moses pantry coordinator. “It is totally dependent on our 501(c)(3) donations to pay for food, utilities and supplies.”
Other local food pantries receiving funds from TCEC this year are in Beaver and Guymon, Oklahoma, as well as Elkhart, Kansas.
“Concern for Community is one of our seven cooperative principles,” Chris Purdy, vice president of Member Solutions at TCEC, said. “Our employees gave generously this year to help those in need.” To learn more about TCEC’s community support, visit www.tcec.coop and follow the cooperative on Facebook.'
