CO-OP member wins free month of electric

DOVER, DE (September 8, 2016) — Members of cooperatives reap the rewards of belonging to a member-owned organization. When cooperatives partner together, their members benefit greatly.

Most recently, Delaware Electric Cooperative (DEC) members who attended the DEC annual meeting and community fair, had the opportunity to stop by Dover Federal Credit Union’s booth; a financial not-for-profit cooperative. Operating under the philosophy of people helping people, Dover Federal provided the opportunity for DEC members to Enter to Win one month’s electric bill paid on their behalf.  Deb Jewell, Director of Marketing for Dover Federal, had the pleasure of notifying Ms. Phyllis Harwood, and congratulating her on being randomly selected as the lucky winner to receive a $250 credit to her DEC account. Ms. Jewell stated, “When Cooperatives unite, the members benefit. It’s great to partner with a fellow member-owned cooperative, and give back to its members in order to make a positive difference in their financial life; it’s not just who we are, it’s what we do.”
