(Sept. 14, 2016) — Recently, many LCEC employees spent their lunch break seeking out information about the American Heart Association and its efforts to beat heart disease and stroke. While enjoying a frosty treat from Southern SnoBalls, our electric cooperative workers gathered to sign up for the Lee County Heart Walk set for Saturday, Dec. 10.
More than 50 employees signed up to join Team LCEC. Employees at LCEC have been participating in the Walk and raising funds to help for decades. In just the past three years, LCEC and employees have raised an estimated $40,000 toward efforts to decrease the deadly disease.
Employee and company support does not end with just one cause. You can find LCEC employees volunteering and raising funds for other concerns such as lung disease, cancer, autism, birth defects, and wellness in general.
At every turn it is possible that an LCEC team member is involved in making a positive social impact in keeping with our overall community responsibility efforts.
Giving our electric cooperative employees an opportunity to give back to the community helps to instill a sense of pride in themselves and the company. It is a win for those in need, a win for employees and customers, and a win for the company. This philosophy has been part of the corporate culture since its inception in 1940.
The spirit of giving and making a difference is a powerful part of our everyday business right along with keeping the lights on!
