Following the Thanksgiving holiday, Prince George Electric Cooperative donated more than $500 to Wakefield’s House of Hope Food Pantry to help better serve the needs of their local community.
“At Prince George, giving back to those we serve during this time of year is a testament to our core principle of having a genuine concern for our communities,” said Brittany Tann, senior communications specialist for the cooperative. "I'm sincerely happy to know that the co-op's donation will help support families this holiday season."
Wakefield's House of Hope Food Pantry distributes food once a month to more than 60 families within their five-county service area. Those items include fresh produce, meat, bread, cheese, eggs, and canned goods.
Terri Rosser, director of Outreach Ministry for Wakefield UMC and House of Hope expressed her gratitude for the cooperative’s generous donation during this time of year. “We’re thankful to have the support of our community partners,” she says. “What we provide to our community wouldn’t be possible without community partners like Prince George Electric Cooperative.
