Helping in Haiti
“This is an opportunity to change an entire community by showing it God’s love,” says Wayne Goodrum of his recent mission trip to Haiti. “This is a chance to feed children and change their destiny.”
Goodrum, manager of business development for Warren Rural Electric Cooperative, Butch Morris, the co-op’s Franklin district manager, and co-op power quality engineer Dava Bray’s husband, Kyle, are part of a team helping build an orphanage in Bon Repos, Haiti, destroyed in an earthquake two years ago. Currently, the children are living in wooden huts and sleeping on wooden shelves. They sometimes go days without food.
To help, contact Children First: Love & Hope at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (502) 695-1863.
Employees of Farmers Rural Electric Cooperative have raised more than $3,200 for the American Cancer Society by selling the cookbook Electrifying Recipes. The $15 cookbook contains more than 400 recipes from members and staff of the co-op, as well as history about the co-op. To order a copy, e-mail Jennifer Jordan at email@example.com.
