PTCI and TCEC, two local cooperatives, brought the Seventh Cooperative Principle of Concern for Community to life with their joint donations to the local YMCA of Texas County and the Guymon Lions Club.
PTCI and TCEC came together and jointly contributed $5,000 to the YMCA’s 2022 fundraising campaign, which funds scholarships, memberships and programs, maintains the facility and improves sustainability.

PTCI and TCEC donated a combined $2,360 to the Guymon Lions Club for train repairs as a part of their Co-ops Care initiative. Their donation ensures this iconic piece of Guymon history keeps rolling down the tracks.
