Mid-Carolina Electric Cooperative (MCEC) announced a donation of $23,000 to two charitable organizations Friday.

The first of the co-op’s two donations was made to the ALS Foundation. The ALS Foundation supports those assisting and caring for victims of Lou Gehrig’s disease. Former MCEC vice president of engineering and operations, Russ Dantzler, had his life taken by ALS in Feb. 2015. MCEC’s donation to the foundation was made to honor Dantzler’s life and legacy with the company.

Burn Foundation of America’s services at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta, GA also benefitted from MCEC’s donations. MCEC chose this entity in honor and memory of employees and any electrical workers who have utilized and benefited from the Burn Foundation of America’s services. Several utility employees across South Carolina have suffered burns and received lifesaving treatment at the nation’s largest burn treatment facility.

To protect co-op employees, members, and sponsors from exposure to COVID-19, the 5th annual Sporting Clays Fundraiser was cancelled. This fundraiser is where the co-op generates a bulk of its donations from. MCEC credits the 2020 donations to the generosity of 50 sponsors.

The next Sporting Clays Fundraiser will be held on Mar. 27, 2021. Those interested in participating in the fundraiser should contact Janice Ayers at 803-749-6473 or Lacy Ridgell at 803-749-6471.
