Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative (SMECO) employees held two fund raising events and recently donated $41,322 to three local shelters. Funds will be donated to Safe Harbor in Calvert County; Lifestyles of Maryland, Martha’s Place Transitional Home, in Charles County; and Wrapping Arms ‘Round Many (WARM) in St. Mary’s County. Each organization received $13,774. SMECO employees raised the money through the SMECO 75 Bike Ride held in June and the SMECO Annual Charity Golf Outing in October. The events are supported by a group of volunteers, vendors, and the SMECO executive team. The Co-op selects a different organization each year to benefit from the fundraising events.
