Union Power Cooperative, along with Co-Bank, a national cooperative bank, recently donated $5,000 to the Stanly Health Foundation in support of The Butterfly House Children’s Advocacy Center in Stanly County.

The Stanly Health Foundation partners with Atrium Health Stanly to improve the health and advance the lives of those in the communities they serve. Funds raised through various events help foster innovative programs and projects that positively impact the lives of thousands of patients and community members each year.

Signature events such as the annual Stanly County Dancing with the Stars competition raises funds for the critical resources needed to provide children, who are possible victims of abuse, a safe environment to receive emotional and physical support from a team of caring and experienced professionals at the Butterfly House. And, since 2012, Dancing with the Stars has raised over $500,000 to support nearly 200 children served annually.

“The donations received from both Union Power Cooperative and Co-Bank will make an incredible impact. These dollars will ensure children served at the Butterfly House will only have to tell their traumatic story once and that care – and conviction of the perpetrator – can begin immediately. We are proud to support this resource that is a true collaboration of community partners and agencies,” said Rebekah Ayscue, associate director of the Stanly Health Foundation.

Today, the Foundation continues to thrive and fulfill its mission of raising funds to improve the health of all people served by Atrium Health Stanly, and Union Power is proud to be a part of that mission.

“With us serving more than 6,000 homes and businesses in Stanly County, we think it is vitally important to advocate for and support the needs of the people in our communities. We hope our contribution will help provide the resources needed to improve the quality of life of the children served by the Butterfly House,” said Luanne Sherron, Union Power’s vice president of Key Accounts and Government Relations.
