The Burrell Foundation works to create a better quality of life for community members living in York Electric Cooperative’s service territories: York, Chester, Cherokee and Lancaster Counties. Started in the memory of Mr. Dick Burrell, a former trustee for York Electric Cooperative, the goals of the foundation are to honor his legacy of fostering hope, generosity and blessings to all of those around him.
Together with the employees of York Electric Cooperative, the board of directors and executive director will work to raise money from our community and surrounding areas so that we are able to provide charitable contributions to those who need it most within York Electric’s service territory. Help could come in the form of a bike for a child or helping hands and materials to repair a leaking roof. The most important goal with each donation is to remain true to what is best for the people and families in our communities.
