Eastern NC co-ops recently worked together to donate a total of $10,000 to Ronald McDonald House of Eastern North Carolina. The donation was matched by a grant of $10,000 from national cooperative bank CoBank’s Sharing Success program.

Albemarle EMC, Cape Hatteras Electric Cooperative, Carteret-Craven Electric Cooperative, Edgecombe-Martin County EMC, Halifax EMC, Jones-Onslow EMC, Pitt & Greene EMC, Roanoke Electric Cooperative, Tideland EMC and Tri-County EMC contributed to the donation.

“It’s great to have a partnership with CoBank to provide funds like this to very worthy and needy causes,” said Edgecombe-Martin County EMC CEO Winston Howell. “We’re also very appreciative to have a program and organization like the Ronald McDonald House here in our community that impacts all of the co-ops and our members. They provide a home away from home for so many families in need.”

The Ronald McDonald House is an essential resource in eastern North Carolina, providing families with quality care and a place to rest and recharge while their children receive medical treatment.
