Members Helping Members
What is RECare?
Each winter, it's a cold fact that needy members of our cooperative cannot afford to heat their homes. With that in mind, we established RECare (Rural Electric Care), a consumer contribution fund in which members like you can assist other members who need help paying utility bills.
Where will my contributions go?
The money stays in our service area, with every dollar contributed to this fund earmarked for disbursement to help low-income members pay winter heating bills.
How do I give?
If you have previously made a monthly pledge to the program, there is nothing you need to do now. As your pledge continues, please know it is sincerely appreciated.
If you choose to begin contributing at this time, pledge your monthly donation to the program and that amount will be automatically added to your monthly electric bill. Or if you prefer, you can make a one-time or periodic contribution. If you would like to help, Contact Us to request an authorization form and return it with your next bill payment. We'd be happy to answer any questions you have about RECare. Call (563) 864-7611 or toll free (888) 788-1551.
RECare is a 501c3 organization - your donations are tax deductible.
