STATESVILLE, N.C. – The EnergyUnited Foundation recently donated $10,000 to the Alexander County Partnership for Children to provide car seats for the organization’s Child Passenger Safety Seat Program.

“This program provides an evaluation of car seats for appropriateness, safety and proper installation,” said Paula Cline, executive director of the Alexander County Partnership for Children. “Replacing inappropriate car seats at the time of inspection helps ensure children are safe in the event of an accident.”

The EnergyUnited Foundation supports many nonprofit organizations throughout the electric cooperative’s 19-county service area, with community health and safety initiatives representing the greatest priority.

“Nothing is more important to EnergyUnited or to the Foundation than the health and safety of our young children,” said EnergyUnited Foundation Administrator Debra Citta. “We commend the Alexander County Partnership for Children for everything that they do to serve families in our communities by keeping our children safe.”

The EnergyUnited Foundation is a voluntary, member-funded nonprofit organization supported by EnergyUnited’s Operation Round-Up program. Nearly 90,000 EnergyUnited members choose to participate in the program by ‘rounding up’ their electric bills each month. The maximum monthly contribution for an individual member with one account is 99 cents. Each of these small contributions are pooled together in a single fund managed by the EnergyUnited Foundation to support needy individuals, families, and essential nonprofit organizations that complete an application explaining the reason and purpose for their requested grant.
