Annual Report 2023: Piedmont Electric's Helping Hand Foundation

A core principle of the cooperative model has always been our collective strength. In that spirit, the Helping Hand Foundation has used
the small monthly donations from thousands of members rounding up their monthly power bill to help assist thousands in our communities.

From helping low-income families and seniors stay warm in the winter through energy
assistance programs to encouraging new and innovative learning with local students,
the foundation has provided much-needed resources to those in our community.

We thank everyone who is currently or has contributed to the foundation in the past.
If you are interested in helping improve our communities, please consider making
a recurring or one-time donation to the foundation by visiting or by calling 800.222.3107.

A special thank you to the foundation board members who have so graciously volunteered their time.
