COOPERATIVE PRINCIPLE #7 - CONCERN FOR COMMUNITY


Cooperatives work for the sustainable development of their communities while focusing on member needs. Ozarks Electric is no different than hundreds of other cooperatives doing business in the United States every single day. And Christmas time is a time of year when it is easy to find people in need who could use a little help. Some of the most underserved members of our communities are children. Many kids face food insecurity on a daily basis, not to mention the lack of some pretty basic things that many of us take for granted like warm clothing and a safe home.


Ozarks Electric employees banned together this holiday season and sponsored three families from our Arkansas and Oklahoma school districts who needed a little help. You can tell by the picture that our Angel Tree Project was a big success. The families we helped received clothing, toys, food and basic supplies as well as a Walmart gift card for anything we may have forgotten. When deliveries were made before Christmas, the recipients were overwhelmed by the generosity and ever so grateful for the help they received. In addition, our employees conducted a food drive for the Cooperative Emergency Outreach (CEO) and delivered more than 100 pounds of nonperishable food to be distributed to other families who are struggling at this time. CEO helped more than 9,500 people last year with assistance for rent, utilities, gasoline and prescriptions as well much needed food. It has been said if you can help people with the basics in life like food and shelter, then they can begin to find a way to get back on their feet.


At Ozarks Electric we strive to exceed expectations every day. We don’t want to do what you only expect us to do – provide you with safe, reliable, affordable electric service. We want to go farther and do better than you expect. We are part of your community and we want to improve the quality of life and make it the best it can be for everyone.

Sleek new flat-panel TVs can consume almost as much electricity as a refrigerator. In general, the bigger the screen, the more power it draws, and HD pulls more too. Plasma screens use the most energy, while LCDs use much less. And remember to change your new TVs default settings to a power saver mode, and turn down the LCD backlight to save energy without sacrificing picture quality. Source: Cooperative Research Network
