Want to make a difference in your community? Midwest Electric’s Community Connection Fund (CCF) is looking for a trustee from Allen-Putnam, Mercer-Darke, and Auglaize-Shelby counties to serve on the Board. Terms expire this fall for current trustees.
The CCF is a service program that provides funding for charitable, benevolent purposes in our community. The board meets four times a year to review grant applications from community groups and decide where funds can make the most impact. You’ll learn a lot about local needs and gain a tremendous feeling of satisfaction, according to current trustees.
No special background is necessary for this appointed (non-elected) position. You will be reimbursed for related expenses.
If you’re interested, please call our office or contact Dave Waltermire by email at [email protected].
Since October 1998, the CCF has donated more than $40,000 a year to worthy causes, including food pantries, libraries, senior citizen groups, fire departments, and more.
How does the CCF work?
Each month, Midwest Electric rounds up electric bills of participating members to the next dollar. For example, if your bill is $91.70, it would be “rounded up” to $92. The average contribution is usually around $6 per year. Those extra pennies are deposited in the CCF. By joining, you are continuing the “neighbors helping neighbors” concept that founded Midwest Electric years ago.
