Powder River Energy Foundation gives $10,000 to local organizations

Written by on October 29, 2018

Press Release – Just in time for the holidays, the Powder River Energy Foundation reached out to assist organizations across northeast Wyoming who are making a difference in the lives of so many of our friends and neighbors in need.

The Powder River Energy Foundation donated $10,000 to 11 non-profit organizations in five counties through its annual 2018 Holiday Giving Campaign. This year’s recipients are:

Campbell County:

Salvation Army and Feed the Flock Food Pantry

Crook County:

Hulett Corner Market for Holiday Baskets; Moorcroft First Presbyterian Church Holiday Baskets; and Sundance Community Christmas Baskets

Johnson County:

All Souls Episcopal Church Food Pantry, Kaycee; and Bread of Life Food Pantry, Buffalo

Sheridan County:

The Hub on Smith for Giving Tree; and Walmart for Shop with a Cop

Weston County:

Newcastle Ministerial Association Christmas Appeal; Home Loving Care of Weston County

The donation is possible in part because of PRECorp’s Operation RoundUp® program. Operation RoundUp®

program gathers voluntary contributions from participating co-op members by “rounding up” their monthly bill to the next dollar, resulting in an average donation of 50 cents a month. These donations are then transferred to the Powder River Energy Foundation which is governed by the independent, voluntary board of directors who represent each county in the PRECorp service area.

charitable organizations in every county of PRECorp’s service territory. To ensure the funding requests

received by the Foundation meet the criteria of a charitable donation, applications are reviewed by the Board of
