East River Electric Employees make donation to Habitat for Humanity

The Brookings Area Habitat for Humanity recently received a 600-dollar donation from the employees of East River Electric Cooperative. Matt Tesch, East River Employees Committee Chair, says, The Employees Committee for the Cooperative hosted a pizza fundraiser and were able to donate the funds raised to Brookings Area Habitat for Humanity.

Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries. The donation from East River will go toward construction costs for building a home in Madison. Habitat relies on such donations to help fund the work. 

Randy Grimsley, resource development director at Brookings Area Habitat for Humanity, expressed appreciation for the donation. Grimsley says the organization is thankful for East River Electric’s donation. He adds that “it’s wonderful to know that people support our endeavors and look forward to continued work in the community for years to come.”
