At Northeast Power, we are proud of our ongoing commitment to the communities we serve as we abide by the seventh cooperative principle, “Concern for Community.” One way we give back to our communities is by providing “Sharing Success” grants to non-profit organizations throughout our service area. This grant is coupled by a match from CoBank, one of our cooperative lending institutions.
Most recently we awarded a grant for $5,000 to The Food Bank For Central & Northeast Missouri to assist with the Buddy Packs program. Buddy Packs are pre-packaged bags with a variety of food each week — with items like easy-to-make meals, cereal and peanut butter. Buddy Packs provide food to 7,500 children each week during the academic year. The Food Bank’s focus is to reach as many students as possible and generous partnerships like Hannibal Regional helps us to accomplish that mission. This donation will benefit students in: Adair, Shelby, Schuyler, Macon, Clark, Shelby and Linn Counties.
