Local Cooperatives Contribute to YMCA

Panhandle Telephone Cooperative, Inc. (PTCI) and Tri-County Electric Cooperative (TCEC) came together to donate $5,000 toward the Texas County Family YMCA’s annual fundraising campaign.

The annual support campaign helps fund the YMCA’s scholarship program, which helps low-income families with membership and program fees so they can take advantage of the YMCA’s offerings. The campaign also helps to keep programs affordable for all members, provides upkeep for the facility and helps with the overall sustainability of the YMCA.
