SKRECC People Fund Grants Awarded
South Kentucky RECC has awarded People Fund grants to thirteen, worthy community organizations. The People Fund was started in 2004 at the request of members who wanted to financially help meet community needs not met by other agencies or resources. Receiving grants are: Bell Elementary (Wayne County) Special Education Department, Blazin’ Bluegrass Festival (McCreary County), Casey County 4-H, Clinton County Middle School Art Program, Clinton County 4-H, Lake Cumberland Housing Agency, Lower Hickory Grove Christian Academy (McCreary County), Northern Middle School (Pulaski County) English Language Arts Committee, Oak Hill Elementary (Pulaski County) School Library, Pulaski County Library Imagination Library, Russell County 4-H, Wayne County Schools Gifted and Talented Program, and Wayne County Schools Youth Services Center.
To date, approximately 3,600 members are participating in The People Fund, which allows South Kentucky RECC members to “round up” their electric bills to the nearest dollar, with an average of 50 cents per participating member being contributed each month to the program. The most that it could cost a member is $11.88 each year.
Members interested in participating in The People Fund and rounding up their bill can sign up through the South Kentucky RECC member portal at www.skrecc.com.
