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.
In 2020, we continued our regular monthly Foodbank volunteer work, helped paint the 50th Habitat for Humanity home on the Shore and cleaned our adopted roadways in Tasley through the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Adopt-A-Highway program.
Lighting the Way has empowered co-op employees to highlight community needs and organize support for those needs.
Our non-profit also partnered with the United States Department of Agriculture and project:HOMES to help local co-op members make improvements to their homes, making them safer and more energy efficient.
Recently our group has hosted two successful American Red Cross blood drives, which we plan to continue.
Since its inception, Lighting the Way also has raised money through internal fundraising.
Our group is always on the lookout for new opportunities to help our community.
We have cleaned over 12 miles of roadway.
Lighting the Way has hosted 2 American Red Cross blood drives.
