Power Source Volunteers

In 2000, South River EMC established the Power Source Volunteers, or PSV. The PSV is a group of volunteers who work on behalf of the Cooperative as goodwill ambassadors in the community to enhance South River EMC's ongoing public relations efforts. Each year they hold fundraising events which benefit students in the South River EMC service area through scholarships, as well as hosting giveaways, such as food baskets, to members.

The Volunteers are comprised of a member representing each directorate district within the Cooperative's service area. The members of the Power Source Volunteers are; Richard Barnhill; Dixie Coats; Brenda Tyndall; Vicky Walker; Iris Lucas; Rebecca O'Dell; and Betty Surles. Julie McLeod is the cooperative representative in the group.

Each year the Power Source Volunteers create four beautiful baskets for members to register to win. The baskets come complete with all the goodies for either the Thanksgiving or Easter meal, a $50 gift card for your meat selection, as well as a credit on your electric account.
