Press Release -- Pedernales Electric employees and PEC are distributing more than $310,000 to civic and charitable organizations throughout its service area. PEC’s United Charities program will give to 369 qualified charities this year.

The funds come from volunteer employee payroll deductions and corporate-matched funds approved by PEC’s Board of Directors. Organizations receiving donations include libraries, churches, health and education programs, family and youth programs, animal services, volunteer fire departments and emergency medical services.

“PEC is able to help hundreds of organizations across Central Texas through the generosity of its employees,” said PEC Senior In-House Counsel Kimberly Paffe. “It’s a privilege to provide support in this personal way.”

Organizations in PEC’s Western District received donations on May 27, 2009, at PEC’s E. Babe Smith Headquarters Building. An organization must meet applicable 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) provisions of the Internal Revenue Code to receive United Charities funds. For more information about PEC’s United Charities program, contact any Pedernales Electric office or call toll-free, 1-888-554-4732.
