CORINTH, Texas – October 22, 2020 – The CoServ Charitable Foundation has designated another $100,000 to the CCF COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund to assist residential Members and Customers affected financially by the pandemic.
The money will be distributed to social service agency partners that are helping CoServ families pay utility bills, rent, mortgage and other expenses during this challenging time.
In all, CCF has designated $427,000 to the fund since April.
“None of this would be possible without the generous contributions of Electric Members and Gas Customers through Operation Roundup,” said Vicki Sargent, CoServ’s Director of Community Engagement. “Their bills are rounded up to the nearest dollar, and the pennies help fund CCF.”
In addition to the Operation Roundup funds, more than $7,000 has been donated directly to the COVID Relief Fund by CoServ Members, Customers and Employees.
“This is a great reminder of what can happen when Members, Customers and Employees band together and respond to an urgent need,” Vicki said.
During the pandemic, CoServ has continued to support North Texas communities through CCF while also providing critical electricity and natural gas service to nearly 400,000 combined electric and gas meters.
