VECustomers Share Awards $2500 to Pickett Co Rescue Squad

Volunteer Energy Cooperative’s
VECustomers Share
program awarded $2,500 to
the Pickett County Rescue
Squad in July.
The VECustomers Share
program, founded in October
of 2001, has donated more
than $3.4 million to various
community-service organizations.
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
www.vec.org.
