VECustomers Share awards local grant of $2,300.00

Volunteer Energy Cooperative’s
VECustomers Share
program awarded $2,300 to
Pickett County organizations
in March.
The VECustomers Share
program, founded in October
of 2001, has donated more
than $3.3 million to various
community-service organizations.
Local groups awarded
grants in March include
Friends of the Pickett County
Library which received a
$1,000 grant; the Pickett
County Junior High School
Boys Basketball Boosters received
an $800 grant; and the
Pickett County High School
Student Health Council was
awarded a $500 grant.
VECustomers Share is a
non-profit, tax-exempt charitable
organization covering
VEC’s 17-county service area.
The foundation’s funds come
from VEC members who have
opted to allow VEC to round
their electric bills up to the
next whole dollar. VECustomers
Share contributions
average 50 cents per month
per customer. The extra
change is pooled with that of
other members and distributed
by the foundation’s board
of directors, who all serve as
volunteers.
Grant applications are
available at any Volunteer
Energy Cooperative Customer
Service center, by calling
(423) 334-7051, or at
