REC continues to support local communities during COVID-19 pandemic

18 September 2020 Covid19 Luray/Page County Shenandoah County Front Royal/Warren County Winchester Frederick County Clarke County News

Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) hasn’t been able to participate in community events like usual, but that hasn’t held the co-op back from supporting the communities it serves.

This summer, REC provided financial support and donated items to local groups so they could continue doing their work in their communities.

REC typically enjoys meeting member-owners at farmers markets during the summer months. Though unable to attend in person, REC donated hundreds of reusable tote bags to markets in Clarke County, Ashland, Bowling Green and Mineral for shoppers to use.

REC also donated $1,000 to the Lord Fairfax Area Branch of the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank; Winchester Rescue Mission; Front Royal CCAP; and the Boys and Girls Club of Madison.

“The coronavirus pandemic has impacted every aspect of people’s lives,” said Senior Public Relations Specialist Brian Wolfe in a news release. “These community gives will help organizations that are facing a higher demand for emergency services, clothing, food and child-care needs.”
