We love this time of year, but it pinches our pennies right? Heating our homes, feeding our (extended) families, fueling up for travel… lots of expenses in a limited time.
That’s why every year, Dakota Valley and Northern Plains celebrate Cooperative Month by helping the folks who really struggle this time of year: the hungry. We know it’s a financial squeeze for people on tight budgets, fixed incomes or maybe just down on their luck. It’s not always easy to afford basic needs plus the wish list for Santa. That’s why our board, in addition to donations from employees and community members, donated $300 to the cause. Each year, we gather goods in October for distribution in November. That way, food pantries are stocked and ready for winter.
Dakota Valley Electric Cooperative conducts activities and outreach all year long, but we also looks for special ways to demonstrate the value of cooperatives during Cooperative Month. The food drive is a perfect fit because it benefits the communities in which we live and work.
