Since 2003, NFEC employees have came together annually to make a difference in their community. Each year, donations are collected from local businesses, contractors, co-op members, employees, and the board of trustees. Gathered funds are used to encourage co-op members who have experienced more than their share of life’s challenges. Health complications, loss of loved ones, and property damages are met with food baskets, bill assistance, and emergency monitor subscriptions. All of us have been there at some point in our lives, and many of us made it through not just on our own fortitude, but with a timely helping hand from someone who cared for us. Merry Christmas from our family to yours.
