ST. GEORGE – “Sharing Success,” a charitable contribution program, has expanded its investment within Southern Utah communities. Dixie Power and CoBank, located in Greenwood Village, Colo., have donated $10,000 to the Erin Kimball Memorial Foundation to be used for transitional housing for homeless families fleeing domestic violence.
LaDel Laub, CEO of Dixie Power, along with Board Chair Mike Brown and Trustee Rebecca Jensen, presented the check.
“We are happy to be able to invest in a program that makes a critical difference for some of our most vulnerable neighbors,” Laub said.
The Erin Kimball Memorial Foundation provides a bridge from emergency shelters to self-sufficient independence and has provided over 200,000 nights of shelter in apartment settings and empowerment services for 587 women and children.
“The timing was perfect,” said Sue Kimball, executive director of the organization. “With ongoing federal and state funding cuts, we need and appreciate the support of our community.”
“Shared success has always been a hallmark of the cooperative business model,” said Robert Engel, president and CEO of CoBank. “And it has been a pleasure to work with Dixie Escalante Electric to provide value to their members and improve the quality of life in their local communities.”
