DREMC presents donation to Moore County Chamber, economic revitalization

Duck River Electric Membership Corporation (DREMC) is facilitating a $25,000 total contribution to support local economies, with $12,500 being contributed by DREMC and a matching $12,500 donation provided by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).

Several chambers of commerce in the DREMC service area have been awarded funding with each being presented a portion of the total donated funds to support economic revitalization and job growth in their communities. The Lynchburg/Moore County Chamber of Commerce is the most recent recipient of the funding.

Other chambers receiving a portion of the funding include the Maury County Alliance, the Franklin County Chamber, the Manchester Chamber, the Shelbyville/Bedford County Chamber and the Marshall County Chamber.

“DREMC is proud to support these chambers and the work they are doing to stimulate the economy during these challenging times,” said DREMC President and CEO Scott Spence. “The goal of this donation is to help existing businesses get the support they need to continue providing jobs, as well as to promote new business development, which creates even more jobs for the members we serve. This is one way by which DREMC can contribute to these efforts.”

This is the second COVID-19 relief contribution made by DREMC. In June 2020, DREMC made a $60,000 donation to their residential electric bill assistance program, Project HELP, which has supported hundreds of families facing financial instability.
