Commitment to Community
On Friday, April 26, Dixie Electric participated in the 2019 Jones County Relay for Life event, held at the Laurel Sportsplex. Employees gathered in our "Survivor" themed tent to honor, celebrate and remember those affected by cancer. Employees also volunteered to carry a torch in 15 minute intervals all night to light up the track for Relay.
Dixie Electric brought home many awards including best banner, best tent, most money raised, and best cancer facts. Dixie Electric has several fundraisers each year that benefit the American Cancer Society, including our charity golf tournament and selling luminary bags, sky lanterns and torches to be displayed the night of Relay. This year we were able to donate more than $10,000 to the Jones County Relay for Life.
On Friday, May 3, Dixie Electric will participate in and donate more than $3,000 to the Petal Relay for Life at the Petal Relay Park. Relay for Life is just one of the ways we are living out our seventh Cooperative principle, Concern for Community.
