Each year, Pedernales Electric Cooperative makes annual contributions to local education foundations within, or surrounded by, its service territory.
This year, PEC donated $1,000 each to 24 different organizations to spend toward initiatives they support.
"At PEC, we believe in powering our communities and empowering future generations through education," PEC Community Relations Coordinator Caroline Tinsley Porter said. "We're proud to be an advocate for our local education foundations that support local teachers and students in so many meaningful ways."
Local area recipients include the Austin Public Education Foundation, Georgetown ISD Education Foundation, Hill Country Community Foundation, Lago Vista ISD Education Foundation, Lake Travis Education Foundation, Leander ISD Educational Excellence Foundation, Liberty Hill Independent School District, Round Rock ISD Partners in Education Foundation and the Spicewood Community Library.
