REIDSVILLE — Canoochee EMC has announced that its Canoochee EMC Foundation has given over $1 million to the communities served by Canoochee.
“We are proud of the members of Canoochee for selflessly giving their small change for a much bigger purpose,” CEMC CEO Lou Ann Phillips said. “Together we really made a difference.”
The Foundation was created in 2001 when CEMC started Operation Round Up. CEMC members are asked to round up their bill to the next dollar for charitable donations.
The Foundation consists of a nine-member board representing the CEMC membership. This board meets every other month, awarding donations through an application process.
Examples of donations include, but are not limited to, schools, fire departments, education opportunities, as well as for members in need.
Canoochee EMC is a not-for-profit electric cooperative with approximately 14,000 members in parts of Bryan, Bulloch, Chatham, Emmanuel, Evans, Liberty, Long, Tattnall and Toombs counties. Canoochee also serves Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield.
