Co-Mo Connect Donates $26,000 to
Two Local Charities As Part of Their Connect to Help Campaign
Co-Mo Connect Powered by Co-Mo Electric Cooperative announced today that the company has donated a total of $26,000 to two local charities – The Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri and the Lake of the Ozarks Idiots Club/The Jesters of Goodwill as part of the company’s annual Connect to Help charitable campaign.
The two charities were chosen by Co-Mo employees and are the beneficiaries of separate donations of $13,000 apiece. Last year, The Food Bank donated an estimated 3 million pounds of food to people in need in Co-Mo’s service area. The Lake of the Ozarks Idiots Club/Jesters of Goodwill is dedicated to helping underprivileged youth in the Lake of the Ozarks area/Mid-Missouri.
During the Connect to Help campaign, Co-Mo Connect pledged to donate $25 to local charitable organizations for each sign-up for Co-Mo’s Award-Winning, Ultra-Fast Internet services during the month of May. In the campaign’s three-year existence, Co-Mo has raised more than $76,000 for local charities who help residents in the surrounding area.
“Co-Mo Connect’s mission is to improve the quality of life for the region we serve,” said Co-Mo CEO Aaron Bradshaw. “Local charities have our sincere thanks and admiration for their tireless work in support of the people who live in our community. The Connect to Help campaign is just one of the many ways we can partner with these charities and give back to the region we serve.”
