Throughout the holiday season, employees, directors and several members of the electric cooperative participated in the company’s clothing drive to collect the warm winter items.

Wrapping up the effort Friday, representatives Steve Drake, CFO, and Peggy Norviel, accounting clerk, brought several bags full of coats to the Logan County Family & Children First Council office at the Discovery Center, 1973 W. State Route 47.

“We usually pick a charity to benefit each Christmas, and this year we wanted to help out Toasty Tots,” Ms. Norviel said. “They do a lot of good for the kids in our community and we all want to help make sure young children in the area are able to stay warm.”
