VECustomers Share funds $2,500 grant to Bluegrass Festival

Volunteer Energy Cooperative’s VECustomers Share program awarded a $2,500 grant to the Sierra Hull Bluegrass Festival in July.
The program, founded in October of 2001, has donated more than $3.8 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.
