Recently, Pat Bartsch and Allen Stea, Operation Trust Board Members for Adams-Columbia Electric Cooperative, presented a most generous gift of $2,320 to the local American Red Cross Disaster Action Team, represented by John and Vicki Jenks, of Wild Rose. Earlier this spring, the local Red Cross chapter submitted an application to ACEC’s Operation Round-up.

Operation Round-Up is a wonderful program where individuals and companies voluntarily “round up” their monthly electric bill by a few cents or dollars.  The excess funds are then utilized helping support local citizens and charities–in this instance—the American Red Cross.

The local American Red Cross serving citizens in Green Lake, Marquette, Waupaca and Waushara counties, will utilize the funds for infant, child, and adult hygiene comfort kits, reflective vests for nighttime fire responses, first aid needs, coolers, and damage assessment kits. Additionally, the gift will be used to help families displaced by such disasters as residential fires—the most common local disaster.

  “Down the street, across the country, around the world—the Red Cross is there”, because of the generosity of American citizens like Adams-Columbia Electric Cooperative.

Please join me in congratulating Vicki and John Jenks for surpassing their goal of raising $25,000 through this year’s Heroes Campaign & Musicales event! At the conclusion of Saturday’s festivities, Vicki and John announced that approximately $26,500 had been raised with some funds still expected to come in!  Serving as true ambassadors for the American Red Cross, we are so blessed to have these two wonderful people involved with our organization. 

Like so many of our volunteers, they are the lifeline of the American Red Cross and the link to our communities, building goodwill and support throughout Eastern Wisconsin. Vicki, John and the entire Heroes Campaign Team, we absolutely could not do it without you! Please take this opportunity to take a bow, you deserve it!
