Valley Wide Energy Helps the Elks

Salmon, Idaho – Valley Wide Energy, a division of Valley Wide Cooperative put together a three week fundraiser capped off by a barbeque that helped raise $2,089 for the Salmon Elks. The Elks have been in need for a new boiler and Valley Wide Cooperative answered the call.

Starting on September 14th and running through the 30th, for every gallon of propane that was purchased from the dispenser at Valley Wide Energy, a $1 donation was made. During that time frame the community of Salmon purchased 1,529 gallons and in turn, Valley Wide donated $1,529. On the last day of the month Valley Wide cooked up hamburgers for the community and charged $1 per plate. Valley Wide donated the hamburgers and buns, The Elks volunteered to cook and Linger Distribution provided the soft drinks with a very large discount to Valley Wide to help.

The Burgers for a Buck lunch raised $560, and nearly $50 of that was donated by American Ninja Warrior resident Lance Pekus who charged $1 per autograph and donated the money to the Elks. Valley Wide Energy and Valley Wide Cooperative are happy to help those in the community who need it. In the past year, Valley Wide Cooperative has donated more than $14,000 in the Salmon area. Valley Wide is committed to improving every community that they are a part of.
