REMC grants awarded

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

Utilities District of Western Indiana REMC is pleased to award the next round of grants from the UDWI REMC Community Fund.

Since 2005, these grant funds have been distributed quarterly for a variety of purposes from mulch and sidewalks in neighborhood parks to EMT training for local fire departments.

All of this has become a reality through the generosity of our local members who fund the program by allowing their electric bills to be rounded up to the next whole dollar each month.

Local charitable organizations need the support of community members in order to continue their work enriching our lives and the lives of our neighbors.

The efforts of these organizations strengthen our communities and improve the quality of life for all of us. The REMC is proud to stand behind these worthwhile organizations.

To date, more than $200,000 has been distributed in the form of grants to local non-profit organizations. Congratulations to the March 2008 recipients:
