#CoopsLoveLocal: Victory Electric to Celebrate National Co-op Month in October with Member Giveaways

Many small businesses, whether retail or restaurants, have had a tough couple of years. Community members may be struggling as well due to shutdowns, reduction in work hours, or loss of jobs due to the pandemic. Giving back to the community is woven into the cooperative spirit and to help boost spirits, support local small businesses, and to bring the power of caring to the communities we serve, Victory Electric is once again celebrating National Co-op Month in October by bringing back their Co-ops Love Local campaign.

Co-ops Love Local will benefit 50 locally owned businesses and 50 community members through a giveaway of 50 gift cards to area businesses in the amount of $50 each.

Drawings will be held each Monday from October 4 through November 1. Anyone who lives in the cooperative service area may enter the giveaway by completing the entry form on Victory Electric’s website each week.

The local-lovin’ fun doesn’t stop there! Winners of the $50 gift card drawings may then post on Facebook using “#Co-opsLoveLocal2021”, or email Victory Electric describing how they spent their extra money locally this month. Doing so will enter them in a drawing for a $100 Victory Electric bill credit during the week of giving on November 22.  Winners who include pictures in the post/email of how they spent the money locally will qualify them for an ADDITIONAL entry!

        To be eligible to win, prize claimants must be 18 years of age or older and reside in Victory Electric’s service territory. Only one entry per account per week. Winners of the $50 drawings will not be eligible for any other Co-ops Love Local $50 gift certificate drawings. Victory Electric employees, trustees, and contractors, and members of their households are ineligible.

“From serving our members to giving back to the community, this is what we do,” said Shane Laws, Victory Electric CEO. “It fits well with one of our seven core cooperative principles, Concern for Community.”

Each dollar spent at local, independent businesses returns three times more money to the local economy than shopping at a chain or mega online retailer. Local businesses are the heart and soul of our communities and we are incredibly lucky to have vibrant, diverse, and resilient small businesses in our area.
