Helping Hand Foundation

Supporting members in need

Piedmont Electric Cooperative’s Helping Hand Foundation helps support the needs of our local communities thanks to the generous support of our members! The foundation helps individuals in need with energy assistance while also supporting local nonprofits, scholarships for students, grants for teachers and other projects.

You can volunteer to help fund the Helping Hand Foundation by rounding up your bill to the nearest dollar each month. When we combine our pennies, we can support our local community and help our area continue to be a great place to live, work and raise a family.
