Concern for Community

Concern for Community is one of the seven cooperative principles, and one to which NRECA is very dedicated. NRECA and its employees support various local, national and international charities including; matching contribution campaigns, "in-kind giving" drives for food, clothing, school supplies and blood. NRECA also promotes a variety of community service projects.
