A number of employees from Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corp. helped the local Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Wilson County on Thursday as part of the Tennessee Electric Co-op Day of Service.
“We love the communities we serve,” said Jay Sanders, community relations coordinator and coordinator for the day of service project for MTEMC. “Our employees call Wilson County home, too, and they were excited to get their hands dirty helping our friends and neighbors.”
During the day of service, MTEMC employees assisted the Habitat ReStore by hanging new energy-efficient lights, rearranging items in the store and assisting customers at the ReStore.
“Service to community is the reason we exist,” said Chris Jones, MTEMC president and CEO, “We have a mission to improve everyday life in the communities we serve, and that mission goes far beyond simply keeping the lights on.”
The Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association coordinates the Tennessee Electric Co-op Day of Service. More than 400 electric co-op employees devoted more than 1,200 volunteer hours to local community service projects across the state during this year’s event.
Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corp. is a consumer-owned nonprofit electric utility that serves more than 220,000 meters in Williamson, Wilson, Rutherford, Cannon and surrounding counties.
