One of our 7 Cooperative Principles is Concern for Community. Our cooperative employees volunteer their time to the community in many different ways.
T.I.P. REC employees are devoted to giving back to the communities that we serve. In 2019, employees volunteered 1,018 hours. Our cooperative participates in a volunteer hours program sponsored by our power supplier, Central Iowa Power Cooperative, and this year we donated 601.5 hours with those donations being divided between the BGM Bear Bags Program which helps feed and clothe our less fortunate kids in Brooklyn and the Sigourney Elementary School lunch/milk program. Supporting our communities is another priority at T.I.P. REC.
