PEC and employees donate $294,429 through United Charities

Over 500 employees benefit 263 nonprofits through program

More than 56% of PEC’s employees worked together to donate $194,429 to 263 nonprofit organizations. Our generous members who are enrolled in our Power of Change Program also pitched in an additional $100,000. Altogether, this was $10,000 more than the previous year.

Most of the charities selected are in Central Texas and include medical organizations, scholarship funds, programs for veterans, volunteer fire departments, and more.

“We are so proud of those who gave a portion of their earnings in support of our local communities,” said Program Manager Bobby Bryant. “This shows how passionate you are in serving our members. These dollars will help these organizations do so many great things for the people we serve.”

PEC United Charities is a corporation owned and operated by the employees of PEC to help charitable organizations. Each participating employee gives a portion of their first hour of pay each month through automatic payroll deductions. At the end of the year, the total amount is spread out equally among all employees, who then choose the charities they’d like to support.
