Lighting the Way

Lighting the Way


A&N Electric Cooperative employees have always been committed to our community by supporting local causes.

In 2019, we organized and created an employee non-profit organization, Lighting the Way.

Lighting the Way has empowered co-op employees to highlight community needs and organize support for those needs.

Since its inception, Lighting the Way has raised money through internal fundraising, partnered with the Foodbank of the Eastern Shore to assist with its backpack program, and adopted two road ways for litter pickup, one in each county, through the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Adopt-A-Highway program.

Our group is always on the lookout for new opportunities to help our community.
