Co-op Family Christmas Helps Neighbors During the Holidays


For over a decade, NFEC employ- ees have been bringing the Christmas Spirit to members who need the help- ing hand of a friend.


“The Co-op Family Christmas was born when a group of employees saw a need within our membership and wanted to help,” explains NFEC General Manager Scott Copeland. “Our board of trustees enthusiastically joined in, and were followed by some of the vendors and contractors who serve the cooperative, along with sev- eral individual cooperative members and local businesses.”


Copeland goes on to explain that each year the recipients are selected by a committee of employees who are personally familiar with the circum- stances faced by each family. Those selected have been identified as facing more than their share of challenges in the past year related to health, loss of family members, or loss/damage of personal property. They are selected because they have continued to work hard to meet their responsibilities themselves; not asking for or expect- ing assistance from anyone. The program has helped fami- lies through financial assistance and gift baskets, in addition to providing specific help such as annual Life Alert service plans, or lending assistance after a family suffered a catastrophic event such as the loss of a home due to fire.


“This is truly an employee-mo- tivated program,” explains Copeland. “They are sincere in their desire and commitment to help where they know help is needed. I am proud of them for caring so deeply about their neighbors,


and I am humbled to work with such a selfless group,” he says. Copeland goes on to say the depressed state of the economy has employees worried about how it could affect donations.


“The number of families that will


be helped through this program will be contingent on the amount of donations
