Concern For Community Shines In Co-Op Cares Food Drive - Guymon 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.

The donation was delivered to Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry in Guymon on January 8. The pantry survives solely on donations.

“We are thankful for donations,” said Gail Parsley, Loaves and Fishes coordinator. “You can be assured we do our best to use every dollar wisely.”

Other local food pantries receiving funds this year are in Beaver and Boise City, 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.”
