The Power of Change
15 July 2019
We are REC – a podcast series produced in partnership with Rappahannock Electric Cooperative.
We were in the studio with Casey Hollins, Director of Communications and Public Relations for REC to talk about The Power of Change program that supports local charities and non-profit organizations. Applications for funding are now being accepted until 5pm on August 9, 2019. Casey told us about the program’s history, why it’s an important part of REC’s mission, and how you can support the program.
Since 2008, The Power of Change has helped dozens of community groups by funding programs that feed the hungry, enhance performing arts programs, provide crisis support services and more throughout REC’s service territory. The program is funded by REC member-owners, who voluntarily round up their electric bill to the next whole dollar each month, contribute a set amount each month or make a one-time donation.
“REC employees live in the same communities as our member-owners, and we all see the challenges nonprofits face to fund their important services,” said Matt Faulconer, REC’s manager of external affairs. “The Power of Change is just one way REC is proud to make a difference.”
Applications are available here on REC’s website along with guidelines for funding and a list of organizations who have previously been awarded funding.
