Warren RECC has announced that it has partnered with the Tennessee Valley Authority to help local communities during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
Through the partnership, Warren RECC will donate to the Operation Warm Hearts Program to aid their members who are experiencing financial hardship but are ineligible for LIHEAP funding. Additionally, Warren RECC will donate to several local food banks as a result of this partnership.
“We are delighted to partner with TVA to aid our members through our Operation Warm Hearts program as well as through donations to our local food banks. Part of our mission at Warren RECC is concern for our communities. This partnership is a wonderful opportunity for us to lend a helping hand to our communities during this uncertain time,” said Dewayne McDonald, president and CEO of Warren RECC.
Warren RECC funding will be matched by TVA’s COVID-19 Community Care Fund, which helps local power companies meet immediate needs in their communities by providing matching funds for local initiatives addressing hardships created by this pandemic.
“In the spirit of public power, we are honored to partner with local power companies to address the unprecedented challenges facing those we serve,” said Jeanette Mills, TVA executive vice president and chief external relations officers. “TVA has a mission of service to make life better for the people of the Valley and providing these funds to address immediate needs is one way we can help ease the burdens on families and communities.”
