Concern for Community is a guiding principle of cooperatives such as Snapping Shoals EMC. In that spirit, SSEMC's Fishing Trail Team raised more than $8,650 for the Burn Foundation of America. SSEMC's Trust Board also donated $5,000 from Operation Round Up funds boosting SSEMC's total donation to $13,650!

The SSEMC Fishing Trail Team raised the funds by selling raffle tickets for a drawing of donated items, including a generator, Blackstone Grill and various gift certificates.
