On August 16, 2018 Magic Valley Electric Cooperative employees presented a check in the amount of $5,000 to Family Crisis Center in an effort to help those who have been victims of domestic violence.
Magic Valley employees raised $2,500 through fundraising activities at the Cooperative and received a matching grant from CoBank through their Sharing Success Program.
Members of the Magic Valley Employee Fundraising Committee were present during the check presentation and were thrilled to learn that the funds would have a direct impact in helping victims of domestic violence and sexual assault from the Valley.
“Fundraising for local non-profits is a way for our employees to make a difference in our community,” says Abraham Quiroga, MVEC’s Business & Employee Development Division Manager. “We hope that this donation will help the organization to achieve their goal of preventing domestic violence in the Valley.”
“We are delighted to have been awarded the Magic Valley employee donation,” Says Laura Martinez, Executive Director for Family Crisis Center. “With these funds, we will be able to make a difference in the safety of victims and their children.”
