Pedernales Electric Cooperative (PEC) and its employees are distributing more than $310,000 to civic and charitable organizations throughout its service area.
PEC’s United Charities program will give to 369 qualified charities in 2009. The funds come from volunteer employee payroll deductions and corporate matched funds approved by PEC’s board of directors. Organizations receiving these funds include libraries, churches, health and education programs, family and youth programs, animal services, volunteer fire departments and emergency medical services.
“PEC is able to help hundreds of organizations across Central Texas through the generosity of its employees,” said PEC Senior In-House Counsel Kimberley Paffe. “Its a privilege to provide support in this way.”
An organization must meet applicable 501(c)(3) or 501 (c)(4) provisions of the Internal Revenue Code to receive United Charities funds. For more information on United Charities, contact any PEC office, or call (888) 554-4732.Email | Print
