Farmers RECC Lights Up Christmas
Each year, Farmers RECC sponsors the “Lighting Up Christmas” program for a school in their service territory. The program, coordinated by the Events Team at Farmers RECC, gathers unwrapped toys and monetary donations for a school in their service territory to use for students in need.
The school chosen to receive donations in the 2020 Christmas season was Eastern Elementary in Barren County.
Throughout the year, staff members at Eastern work with the Family Resource Office to identify families that might have a need for essential items like shoes, shirts, socks, coats and food.
During the 2020 ‘Lighting Up Christmas’ program, Farmers RECC employees and members donated more than $1,800 to give to Eastern Elementary as well as several unwrapped toys, books and stuffed animals.
