VECustomers Share Awards $2,000 in Pickett County Grants

Volunteer Energy Cooperative’s VECustomers Share program awarded $2,000 in grants to community service organizations in Pickett County in June.
The program, founded in October of 2001, has donated $2,675,453 to various community-service organizations. During June grants across VEC’s 17-county service area totaled $34,200.
The Pickett County High School Baseball Booster Club received the $2,000 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 www.vec.org.
