If Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood for peace, equality and anti-poverty, than he’d have stood toe-to-toe with fellow cooperative employees last week as its employees constructed the home of a family in need.
The employees used the day to honor the American hero and help a member of their community.
And, in true electric cooperative-style, the home was designed with energy efficiency in mind.
The home is expected to cost about $65,000. Once it’s complete, the owner will pay a monthly mortgage of $100-$250. Construction should be complete in March.
A big thanks to our friends in Alabama for their spirit of giving and commitment to community.
