Powder River Energy Foundation gives $10,000 to local organizations
Thursday, December 28, 2017
Press Release – Just in time for the holidays, the Powder River Energy Foundation reached out to assist organizations across northeast Wyoming who are making a difference in the lives of so many of our friends and neighbors in need. The Powder River Energy Foundation donated $10,000 to 13 non-profit organizations in five counties through its annual 2017 Holiday Giving Campaign. This year’s recipients are:
Salvation Army and Second Chance Ministries
Hulett Corner Market for Holiday Baskets; Moorcroft First Presbyterian Church Holiday Baskets; and Sundance Community Christmas Baskets
All Souls Episcopal Church Kaycee (Food Pantry) and Bread of Life Food Pantry, Buffalo
The Hub on Smith for Giving Tree (formerly Sheridan Sr. Center); and Walmart for Shop with a Cop
Newcastle Ministerial Association Christmas Appeal; Home Loving Care of Weston County; Upton 7th Day Adventist Church (Community fuel bills assistance); and Upton Food Bank
The donation is possible in part because of PRECorp’s Operation RoundUp® program. Operation RoundUp® program gathers voluntary contributions from participating co-op members by “rounding up” their monthly bill to the next dollar, resulting in an average donation of 50 cents a month. These donations are then transferred to the Powder River Energy Foundation which is governed by the independent, voluntary board of directors who represent each county in the PRECorp service area.
One hundred percent of Operation RoundUp® program funds go directly to the organizations and all administrative overhead to the Foundation is donated through its relationship with PRECorp. Additionally, since the Powder River Energy Foundation is a 501 (c) (3), all donations are tax deductible.
