One of our 7 Cooperative Principles is Concern for Community. Our cooperative employees are devoted to giving back to the communities that we serve and volunteer their time in many different ways.
In 2020, T.I.P. REC employees volunteered 750.5 hours. Our cooperative participates in a volunteer hours program sponsored by our power supplier, Central Iowa Power Cooperative, and this year we donated approximately 603 hours with those donations being divided between the First Resources Corporation and Big Hearts 4 Tiny Hands.
- First Resources Corporation offers a full range of programs servicing people with disabilities, children, and families in need, and drug and alcohol counseling and mental health services for adults
- Big Hearts 4 Tiny Hands provides support for families with babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
Supporting our communities is another priority at T.I.P. REC.
