Commitment to Community
Stuff a Bucket Truck
On Friday, May 7, Dixie Electric hosted a nonperishable food drive at Walmart in Laurel to help offer support to the Good Samaritan Center in Laurel.
On Friday, May 21, Dixie Electric hosted another food drive at Ramey's Market Place in Waynesboro, with shoppers donating more than 1,000 pounds of food for the Samaritan's Closet and Pantry in Waynesboro.
On Friday, May 28, Dixie Electric hosted its last food drive for the year at Corner Market and The Dollar Tree in Petal, with proceeds benefiting the Petal Children's Task Force.
Dixie Electric employees stood at the entrance doors encouraging shoppers to purchase items to help “stuff a bucket truck” for those in need. Patrons overwhelmingly responded and quickly filled a Dixie Electric bucket truck with canned food, rice, pasta and other nonperishable items.
“We are thankful for non-profit organizations, like the Good Samaritan Center, Samaritan's Closet and Pantry, and the Petal Children's Task Force, who are pillars within our communities in caring and providing food for local citizens,” Community Relations Coordinator Pollyanna Magee said.
Concern for community is one of the guiding cooperative principles that power Dixie Electric. Helping fight hunger in our community is just one of the ways the employees live out this principle.
