(December 17, 2021) Once again, the employees of Jackson Purchase Energy Cooperative (JPEC) have opened their hearts and pockets to support their community through the WPSD Local 6 and Regions Bank Spirit of Giving Toy Drive.
Each year kids in our area go without gifts. That reality caused JPEC to support the Spirit of Giving Toy Drive. Delivery problems and material shortages, that seem commonplace in our world today, may cause more kids to experience heartbreak rather than the joy that many of us felt as a kid on Christmas morning.
The employees of JPEC set out to raise money to purchase gifts for this cause. By December 10th, employees had raised $1,000.00. To help support the effort, JPEC also made a company contribution of $500.00 to bring the combined total to $1,500.00! Donations were used to purchase 116 toys that will bless families in our community.
“It really is better to give than to receive,” said JPEC President & CEO, Greg Grissom, “we are excited to play a part in events like this that support members of our community. That’s what cooperatives are all about.”
