Community Involvement

Commitment to community is a founding principle of electric cooperatives, but it is more than just talk. It describes the cooperatives and its employee’s commitment to donate time and money to local causes and assist the local communities in which we serve and live. As a local business, staffed by your friends and neighbors, Wasco Electric looks for ways to make a difference – beyond delivering electricity. Here is a look at some of the ways your co-op is helping the communities we serve.

Involvement in local communities:

  • Sponsorship of community events
  • Donations to local food banks
  • The WECare program for energy assistance to those families struggling to make ends meet
  • Annual Community and Economic Development grants
  • Donations to local fire departments
  • Donations to High School graduation events
  • 4-H buyer at the local county fairs
  • Sponsor students to attend the Idaho Youth Rally and the NRECA Washington, DC youth Rally
  • Providing electrical safety programs to the local grade schools
