Many thanks to the Great Lakes Energy People Fund for their awarding us $4,765 in grant money. This was to partially pay for our beautiful new roof. This is a great program.
Great Lakes Energy members help to enhance the quality of life for people in our communities through the People Fund. Bills of participating members are “rounded up” to the next dollar amount and grants are awarded to non-profit organizations and charitable activities throughout our service area. Grants are awarded by three independent Boards of Directors representing three geographical regions – south, central and north. There are no overhead costs – 100 percent of the money collected is returned to our communities. – See more at their website here
We also need to thank the many people who made this possible. Janet DeYoung led the application effort. Jim Williams, Mary Morrison and Ray Dereske all helped to create the request. Thank you to all of our supporters over the last three years who, one way or another, enabled us to pay the remaining balance of over $5,000
