Medina EC Donates $975 to Alexander Memorial Library
In June, Medina EC granted $10,000 to area organizations through the Community Empowerment Program to encourage community and economic development throughout the 17 counties served by the cooperative. Part of that donation went to the Alexander Memorial Library, which received $975 to help replace the children’s tables in the library.
The Community Empowerment Program focuses on projects that:
- Encourage economic diversity
- Contribute to community health and development
- Improve the quality or quantity of services essential for the development of viable communities
Medina EC’s CEO Mark Rollans said, “Beyond providing safe, reliable electricity, it’s important as a cooperative to make a difference in the communities we serve. A library is a great place for the community—especially our youth—to have a safe place while learning.”
We are proud to include Alexander Memorial Library in the more than $56,900 in grants made to different non-profits and local governments since the CEP program was started in 2015. Additional recipients this year Castroville Colonies Heritage Association in Castroville, Children’s Advocacy Center in Laredo, Medina County Meals on Wheels and Senior Center in Hondo, Medina Regional Hospital in Hondo, and West Alice Youth Center in San Diego.
