Employees of Powell Valley Electric Cooperative helped prepare over 500 care bags to of all the nursing homes in our service area as part of the Tennessee Electric Co-op Day of Service. Cooperative employees met with nursing home personnel to deliver these bags for the residents.
“We have a mission to improve life in the communities we serve, and that mission goes far beyond simply keeping the lights on,” says Randell Meyers, General Manager of Powell Valley Electric Cooperative. “Our employees call northeast Tennessee and southwest Virginia home, too, and they were excited to give back to the communities that they love.”
The Tennessee Electric Co-op Day of Service is coordinated by the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association. Twenty-eight separate community service projects were completed as a part of this year’s event. More than 450 electric co-op employees devoted more than 1000 volunteer hours across the state.
In the three year history of the Day of Service event, more than 1,200 co-op employees have volunteered 3,100 hours to complete 75 community projects.
