Beginning Oct. 1, Fayetteville Public Utilities began participating in a Month of Service campaign to help stock the shelves at Junior’s House, a Lincoln County-based non¬profit agency that provides prevention, intervention and treatment services to physically and sexually abused children and their families in a child-focused team approach.
During the month, FPU employees and customers are encouraged to donate much-needed items to help Junior’s House stock their shelves. These items include new stuffed animals and toys, play-doh and packages of paper towels and toilet paper. Donations can be dropped by FPU’s lobbies at 408 West College St. during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
FPU’s Month of Service is an expansion of the Tennessee Electric Co-op annual Day of Service, which takes place on Thursday, Oct. 17.
“We wanted to expand on the Day of Service project and make it last the entire month of October,” said FPU CEO and General Manager Britt Dye. “This allows our employees and customers to get involved and makes it a community-wide effort. We have a mission to improve everyday life in the community we serve, and that mission goes far beyond simply providing quality utility services.
“Junior’s House is an asset to our community, and we are proud to partner with them,” Dye said.
