TVA Donates to West Kentucky Agencies to Benefit Those in Need
December 2, 2010
HICKMAN, Ky. -- The Tennessee Valley Authority donated a total of $3,500 to three agencies in western Kentucky that provide goods and services to people in need.
TVA representatives recently presented checks for $1,500 to Habitat for Humanity of Fulton and Hickman counties, $1,000 to Fulton County Alternative Resources for Kentuckians and $1,000 to West Kentucky Allied Services.
“These agencies help make a difference in the lives of people TVA serves,” TVA Valley Relations Manager Nancy Mitchell said.
Habitat for Humanity helps build energy-efficient homes for people who otherwise may not be able to own a home.
West Kentucky Allied Services helps residents pay their utility bills in times of need.
Fulton County Alternative Resources for Kentuckians helps people with utilities, food and to find suitable living arrangements.
The donations are part of TVA’s work to support the communities it serves in the state of Kentucky.
The Tennessee Valley Authority, a corporation owned by the U.S. government, provides electricity for 9 million people in parts of seven southeastern states at prices below the national average. TVA, which receives no taxpayer money and makes no profits, also provides flood control, navigation and land management for the Tennessee River system and assists utilities and state and local governments with economic development.
