Co-Mo Donates $21,000 to Local Charities
Tipton, Mo. (Aug. 30, 2021) —Co-Mo Connect Powered by Co-Mo Electric Cooperative announced today that the company has donated a total of $21,000 to two local charities – The Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri and Quality Industries’ Sheltered Workshop – as part of the company’s annual Connect to Help charitable campaign.
The two charities were chosen by Co-Mo employees and will be the beneficiaries of separate donations of $10,500 apiece. Last year, the Food Bank donated an estimated 3 million pounds of food to people in need in Co-Mo’s service area. Quality Industries’ Sheltered Workshop in Versailles employs more than 70 disabled employees in Morgan and Moniteau counties.
During this year’s Connect to Help campaign, Co-Mo Connect pledged to donate $25 to local charitable organizations for each sign-up for Co-Mo services in the month of May. The campaign also included a raffle in April that raised $8,500 for Quality Industries’ Sheltered Workshop. In the campaign’s two-year existence, Co-Mo has raised more than $50,000 for local charities helping area residents.
“As a local cooperative, our mission is to improve the quality of life for the region we serve,” said Co-Mo CEO Aaron Bradshaw. “Local charities have our sincere thanks and admiration for their tireless work in support of the people who live in our community. The Connect to Help campaign is just one of the many ways we can partner with these charities and give back to the region we serve.”
