Caney Valley Electric has partnered with CoBank to provide monetary donations to two local charitable organizations: Kansas 4-H Foundation and the Friends of Chautauqua County Animal Shelter.
The donations were a part of CoBank’s Sharing Success Matching Grant Program for 2020. CoBank, headquartered outside of Denver, CO, is a cooperative bank serving agribusinesses and rural infrastructure provides such as Caney Valley Electric throughout the United States.
Caney Valley’s board of trustees provided a $1,100 donation to the Kansas 4-H Foundation, which will benefit 11 4-H clubs in the cooperative’s service territory. A $1,000 donation was made to the Friends of Chautauqua County Animal Shelter. Both of these donations were matched by CoBank.
Throughout rural America, electric cooperatives are working to improve the quality of life in their communities. Caney Valley Electric is excited and proud to take part in assisting these foundations and the communities we serve.
