“Give 5” to help neighbors struggling with power bills
Give 5, a voluntary program launched by Laurens Electric Cooperative, lets co-op members directly help other members who have been hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hundreds in our area have lost jobs or seen their work hours reduced and are faced with growing electricity bills as a result of these economic hardships.
HOW IT WORKS:
• Add a $5—or more—donation to your electric bill for only one or two months.
• We will match that amount for every member donating, up to a total match of $100,000.
The funds will go into LEC’s Cooperative Caring program, which are distributed through the Laurens Baptist Crisis Center (864-984-2966) and the Center for Community Services in Greenville (864-967-2022).
Complete the sign-up form or contact a representative at 1-800-942-3141 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participating members will see the donation on their next power bill.
