One of our 7 Cooperative Principles is Concern for Community. Our cooperative employees volunteer their time to the community in many different ways.
T.I.P. REC employees are devoted to giving back to the communities that we serve. In 2020, employees volunteered 750.5 hours. Our cooperative participates in a volunteer hours program sponsored by our power supplier, Central Iowa Power Cooperative, and this year we donated approximately 603 hours with those donations being divided between the First Resources Corporation which offers a full range of programs servicing people with disabilities, children and families in need, and drug and alcohol counseling and mental health services for adults and Big Hearts 4 Tiny Hands which provides support for families with babies in the NICU. Supporting our communities is another priority at T.I.P. REC.
