Farmers RECC Lights up Christmas for LeGrande Elementary
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 2019 Christmas season was LeGrande Elementary in Hart County.
Throughout the year, staff members at LeGrande 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 2019 ‘Lighting Up Christmas’ program, Farmers RECC employees and members donated more than $1,800 to give to LeGrande Elementary as well as several unwrapped toys, books and stuffed animals.
Farmers RECC Events Team members present a check and toys to LeGrande Elementary School.
