Yampa Valley Electric Association raises funds, food for communities
In keeping with its mission of service, Yampa Valley Electric Association, its employees, and board of directors recently held a campaign to give back through food and funds.
From Dec. 10 through 18, YVEA team members contributed $4,437 to help members in need pay their electric bills.
The funds raised were distributed to the Community Budget Center and LOVE, Inc. in Craig; and LiftUp of Routt County.
As part of the two-part food and funds campaign, employees asked members to join them in a food drive.
Food donations contributed by staff and members filled two YVEA truck beds. The food was then distributed to area food banks from Routt County to Baggs, Wyoming.
This year, a handful of Moffat County High School graduates are setting out to carry on the family tradition. From business to education, these students plan to follow in the footsteps their parents and in some cases, grandparents and great-grandparents.
