Commitment to Community
Cooperative Day of Service
Each year in conjunction with Martin Luther King Jr. day, Dixie Electric employees participate in Cooperative Day of Service. Inspired by Martin Luther King Jr.'s message of service, employees from cooperatives across the state of Mississippi set out to serve the communities where they live and work.
This year, we chose to prepare 220 backpacks for children placed in foster care in Jones, Forrest, Perry, Wayne and Clarke counties. Filled with items such as toys, clothing, diapers, toiletries and personal hygiene products, these backpacks are designed to help make the transition into foster care easier for the foster child and the foster family receiving them. These backpacks are delivered to the Mississippi Department of Human Services foster backpack program.
