With support from members like you, ECI REC’s RECare program distributes funds to low-income members in Benton and Buchanan County. These donations are used to pay for heating bills or the cost of winterizing the homes of ECI REC members who need assistance.
In 2018, 68 members donated $4,985 to RECare. Some members donated once a year, while others had the Cooperative add a few dollars to their electric bills each month. No matter the size or frequency of the donation, it made a difference! We are proud our members are digging into their pockets to help others.
RECare funds are distributed to qualifying members through community action agencies. Donations from our northern service area are administered by Operation Threshold, while donations from our southern service area are administered by Hawkeye Area Community Action Program (HACAP).
