Medina EC Donates $1,850 to Children’s Advocacy Center
In June, Medina EC granted $10,000 to area organizations through the Community Empowerment Program to encourage community and economic development throughout the 17 counties served by the cooperative. Part of that donation went to the Children’s Advocacy Center in Laredo to clean the air conditioning system which may be the cause of polluted air.
The Community Empowerment Program focuses on projects that:
- Encourage economic diversity
- Contribute to community health and development
- Improve the quality or quantity of services essential for the development of viable communities
Medina EC’s CEO Mark Rollans said, “Beyond providing safe, reliable electricity, it’s important as a cooperative to make a difference in the communities we serve. We are happy to support the Children’s Advocacy of Laredo with a CEP grant so they can continue to provide a safe place for their services.”
The Children’s Advocacy Center of Laredo is part of the more than $56,900 in grants made to different non-profits and local governments since the CEP program was started in 2015. Additional recipients this year include the Alexander Memorial Library in Cotulla, Castroville Colonies Heritage Association in Castroville, Medina County Meals on Wheels and Senior Center in Hondo, Medina Regional Hospital in Hondo, and West Alice Youth Center in San Diego.
