Electricity Maine-Power to Help gives $140,000 to Maine Non-Profit Groups

The owners of Electricity Maine announced that 7 Core Power to Help non-profit partners will each receive $20,000.

These organizations include:  Good Shepherd Food Bank, The Programs of Camp Susan Curtis, the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy, Tedford Housing, St. Mary’s Nutrition Center, Preble Street, New Beginnings.

“Partnerships with for profit companies are extremely important to our foundation,” said Becky Dyer, Director of Research and Development at the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy.  “We must all work together to help families improve their educational levels.  Our partnership with Electricity Maine supports the Barbara Bush Foundation as we invest in the education of Maine’s children and their parents.”

Core Partners are non-profit organizations that work to help residents obtain the skills and resources they need to create better lives for themselves and their families.  Each organization fits into one of 4 categories: homelessness prevention, access to education, healthy living, or hunger prevention.

“Providing electricity at competitive, fixed rates to Maine residents is just one way we support Maine.  Another important value of our company is to support the communities in which we do business,” says Emile Clavet, co-founder of Electricity Maine.  “We do this with our Power to Help Fund, providing some great organizations with some much-needed help to do the work they do.  My business partner Kevin Dean and I have been very fortunate, both personally and professionally.  This is our way of giving a little back.”
