The cooperative demonstrates its commitment to community through its support of organizations that serve area residents, such as the American Red Cross, American Cancer Society, Hospice, Alzheimer’s Association and many other civic and non-profit organizations.
The Co-op actively supports local schools through its annual Youth Tour competition, in which local high school juniors learn about government and cooperative operations and compete for a trip to Washington, D.C.
Other programs include: Safety City (a line-voltage electrical safety demonstration), Project Graduation sponsorships, career fair participation, Partners in Excellence in Education, and cooperative tours.
WFEC contributes to the recruitment of new industries and expansion of existing businesses through zero- and low-interest loans and the revolving loan fund (RLF) in Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson and Washington Counties.
The Youth Tour program teaches students about cooperatives and how our system of government operates. Each year, West Florida Electric Cooperative (WFEC), along with the Florida Electric Cooperative Association (FECA), sponsors a Youth Tour contest for the sons and daughters of WFEC’s member-owners.
