East Central Energy has donated $105,000 to 25 fire departments in their service area.
The money was made available from canceled plans in 2021 due to the pandemic.
“Last year, we donated year-end dollars to food programs,” explains VP/CFO Lisa Prachar. “This year, we want to help another group of everyday heroes by lessening their financial load. Putting on a heavy uniform and running toward a dangerous situation is the definition of bravery. We can’t thank these men and women enough for the valuable service they provide.”
Area fire departments that received funds include Pine City, Rush City, Askov Fire & Rescue, Finlayson, Hinckley, Brook Park, and Braham.
