Seminole Electric gives back for COVID-19 relief
In July, Seminole employees organized a three-week giving campaign to benefit those affected by COVID-19 in their surrounding communities. The campaign, “Seminole Gives: COVID-19 Pandemic Relief,” gave employees the opportunity to come together to donate monetary gifts or in-kind materials.
The campaign benefited three organizations: The Hardee Help Center in Wauchula, FL; Metropolitan Ministries in Tampa, FL; and Feed the Need of Putnam County, FL. At the end of the campaign, Seminole employees donated $13,386, which qualified for a $10,000 match from Seminole and a $10,000 match from CoBank. TIC, the engineering, procurement, and construction contractor for the Seminole combined cycle facility, also contributed more than $6,610, bringing the campaign total to $40,000 to be shared among the three organizations.
“Concern for Community – one of the seven cooperative principles – is an inherent part of being a cooperative business. The participation, thoughtfulness, and generosity of our employees during this time is what made our Seminole Gives COVID-19 Pandemic Relief Campaign a success,” said Seminole’s CEO and General Manager, Lisa Johnson.
