The Energy Cooperative is supporting our local veterans, one gallon at a time.

On Veteran’s Day, 2015, The Energy Cooperative (TEC) unveiled its latest addition to the propane fleet of vehicles — a bobtail delivery truck with an American patriotic design. This truck does more than just make propane deliveries. Its special purpose is to “pay-it-forward” to those who sacrificed for us – for every gallon of propane delivered by the patriotic truck, one penny is donated to the American Veterans Support Grant. The grant was established by TEC to support local, non-profit organizations that help military personnel, veterans, and their families. Pictured from left to right: VFW Dresden, Ohio Post 11072 Commander Jerry Wade, Quartermaster Donald Beers, TEC Propane Senior Driver Mike Sharkey, and TEC Propane Operations Manager Bob Herron with the Veterans propane truck. A grant provided by The Energy Cooperative allowed the Dresden VFW to make repairs to their food service trailer.

“We recognize the incredible work provided by these service organizations and are proud to offer these community grants to further strengthen their efforts in serving local veterans and military servicemen and servicewomen,” said Bob Herron, TEC’s Propane Operations Manager. “TEC puts a premium on recognizing local charities that care for and honor our military and veterans. The entire Cooperative is honored to play a part.”
