REC recently donated $500 to the Love Outreach Food Pantry of Orange County. The money represented the cash prize REC received for winning first place in the Town of Orange Holiday Parade.
REC coordinated with the Rotary Club of Orange County, which awarded the prize, to ensure the money went to a group that would help the community.
“We felt it was the right thing to do—to donate this money back into the community,” said Jeff Henry, Director of Member Services and Community Relations at REC’s Culpeper office.
Added JoAnn Tolbert, Board Director at the food pantry: “It’s quite a blessing. It shows us how much [REC] cares about the community and Orange County.”
She noted that the $500 will allow the pantry to feed 300 families in Orange County for a month.
