Today Debbie Robinson, CEO and General Manager of Wood County Electric Cooperative, Inc. (WCEC), presented a check in the amount of $3,000 to the Wood County Child Protection Board Inc.
This check was made possible through one of WCEC’s software vendors, SEDC, through its fourth annual video contest. WCEC’s video “WCEC & SEDC Through the Years” was awarded the $2,000 second place prize, based on the number of votes received. The cooperative also garnered a $1,000 SEDC Employee Choice award for Best Lyrical Adaptation of a Kenny Rogers song.
WCEC participated in the video contest this year on behalf of the non-profit Wood County Child Protection Board that assists the county’s foster children. The board supplements care by providing both necessities as well as items that help these foster children in specific way with the goal of giving them a basic sense of normalcy during a difficult time. These include monthly allowances, birthday and Christmas gifts, back-to-school clothes, and even monetary support for extracurricular activities like band, sports, or even driver’s education.
About this donation, Debbie Robinson said, “The employees of WCEC never cease to amaze me in their talent and willingness to go above and beyond. It pleases me greatly to be able to donate this money on their behalf. I would also like to thank SEDC for holding the annual video contest and for the opportunity to be able to give this gift to the Wood County Child Protection Board for the benefit of our local children.”
