Here at Treasure Realty, we like to bring attention to generosity when we see it happening. The giving of time, talent, and treasure makes the world a better place. Jones-Onslow EMC is a company doing that here on the treasure coast of Topsail Island.
This week’s guest blogger is Steve Goodson, the VP of Energy Services with JOEMC writing about their partnership with United Way’s CHEW Program for National Co-op Month.
There’s More to October Around Topsail Than Holloween!
When you think of October—pumpkins, Halloween and beautiful fall foliage naturally come to mind. But October is notable for another reason. It’s National Co-op Month! This is the time of year when cooperatives across the country, including Jones-Onslow EMC, celebrate who we are and more importantly, the members we serve.
Cooperatives are different than other types of businesses. When the market declines to offer a product or service, or does so at a very high price, co-ops intervene to fill the need.
Similar to how JOEMC was built by members who came together to bring electricity to our community, cooperatives are conveners for the common good. Your electric co-op exists to provide safe, reliable and affordable energy to you, the members of the co-op. Equally important is our mission to enrich the lives of the members we serve.
We’re committed to helping make our communities a better place to live, work, and raise families by working with various organizations through economic development projects, civic functions, and community-betterment initiatives. At JOEMC, we do more than supply power.
Because we’re local and owned by you, (our members), building communities is core to our mission. That’s why we invest in programs and opportunities that leave a lasting impression on the people that live here. As part of Co-op Month we’re celebrating by putting into action one of the seven Cooperative Principals … Concern for Community.
This month, employees will be participating in the United Way of Onslow County’s CHEW Program by stuffing backpacks for community children to take home over the weekend. YOU can get involved, help, and show YOUR Concern for Community too!
All month long, we’re collecting food items for the CHEW Program at our offices in Jacksonville and Sneads Ferry. Click here to see the food items that we need.
