Life Gets Hairy for Kay Electric Employees No Shave November raises money for cancer awareness


Kay Electric Cooperative (KEC) employees participated in No-Shave November, a nationwide fund-raising effort that supports cancer prevention, research and education. The goal of No-Shave November is to spark conversations about cancer awareness among participants and the general public by growing out hair, which many cancer patients lose. Participants donate the money they would typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate the public about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the disease. KEC contributed $15 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for each employee who participated. Several employees also made personal contributions.

According to the Consumer Electronics Association, the average household owns 24 consumer electronics products, which are responsible for 12 percent of household electricity use. ENERGY STAR-certified audio/ video equipment is up to 50 percent more efficient than conventional models.
