Inter-County Energy donates to the Ronald McDonald House
Inter-County Energy’s Employees Help Ronald McDonald House Provide Lodging, Comfort for Families
Inter-County Energy employees helped provide more than $13,000 in donations of money and supplies for the Ronald McDonald House Charities in Lexington and Louisville.
Donations totaling $13,282 came from employees of Inter-County Energy and other Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives to support Ronald McDonald Houses in Lexington and Louisville, which provide lodging and resources to families while a child is in a nearby hospital.
“The Ronald McDonald House Charities provide comfort to families during one of the most distressing times imaginable, when a child is sick and in the hospital,” said Jim Jacobus, President and CEO. “Inter-County Energy is proud of our employees who are helping Ronald McDonald Houses provide a ‘home-away-from-home’ for these families.”
In addition to monetary donations, employees provided goods such as compact refrigerators, snacks, health and beauty products, cleaning supplies and more.
“The outpouring from Inter-County’s employees was simply amazing,” said Dan Hitchcock, Vice-President of Member Services.
The effort was dubbed the Ronald McDonald House Wish List Drive and included a friendly competition among the 17 co-ops that make up Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives to see whose employees could provide the most donations.
