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

The 2023 Co-ops Love Local contest will open for entries on Oct. 1!

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 the 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.

The local-lovin’ fun doesn’t stop there! Winners of the $50 gift card drawings may then post on Facebook using “#CoopsLoveLocal2023” 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 21. Winners who include pictures in the post/email of how they spent the money locally will qualify them for an ADDITIONAL entry!

“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.”
