“The holidays.” I love everything about this time of year. Just the thought of the holiday season brings a smile to my face and evokes a sense of comfort and nostalgia. Recalling family gatherings and traditions warms my heart and fills my senses.
It’s a time of reflection. I’m grateful for my own family as well as my co-op family. At Miami-Cass REMC, we’re driven by a sense of mission and purpose. Our team feels a strong connection to our community and to our members, because we live here, too.
While many of our community-focused programs and activities such as Coats For Kids and Toys For Tots ramp up this time of year, we have several programs and services in place to help our members year-round. I’d like to remind you about some of these offerings in hopes you’ll find them beneficial.
Our Operation Round Up program helps provide assistance to worthy local organizations. By simply choosing to “round up” your energy bills to the next whole dollar amount, you can help others right here in our community. Through members’ generous donations over the past years, we’ve been able to give grants to those in need. If you’d like to participate in our Operation Round Up program, please visit our website at www.mcremc.coop or give us a call at 765-473-8770.
But the most important investment we make is in our local youth. Miami-Cass REMC has logged countless volunteer hours supporting schools, youth clubs and programs along with providing generous scholarships for local students. Each year, through our Indiana Youth Tour program, we send high school seniors-to-be to Washington, D.C., for a week-long immersion to experience democracy in action.
At the heart of all of these programs is you — the members we proudly serve. Looking back, I’m grateful for so many wonderful community partners and for the positive impact we can continue to make.
This holiday season, I wish you and your loved ones peace, joy and prosperity. Speaking on behalf of our team at Miami-Cass REMC, I know the future will be be bright, because of you.
