4-County Electric Power Association wraps up community food drive

Monday, November 20 is the last day to donate food items.  

LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) – 4-County Electric Power Association is looking to do more than keep the lights on this holiday season.

The not-for-profit organization has been collecting items for the Salvation Army Food Pantry as part of the Fill a Bucket program.

The organization is asking its members and employees to bring non-perishable food items to the Columbus or Starkville Office.

4-County CEO Brian Clark said this is just another way to be good stewards of their community.

“We are a not-for-profit electric co-operative and part of that is seven principles that define us. One of those is concern for the community. We believe actions speak louder than words. I think you see that with storm restoration, the linemen are out. It’s a good feeling to be part of our co-op but we want to give back to people who are needy this year, especially around Thanksgiving. Not everyone has a family to get together with. Not everybody has food. The economy is tough and inflation is high. It just made sense,” Clark said.

Monday, November 20 is the last day to donate food items.
