GreenTouch, May 6


Every electric cooperative that participates in project GreenTouch is a member of Minnesota’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives, a collection of rural electric cooperatives throughout the state that have the same values. Touchstone Energy is a co-brand shared by cooperatives across the nation to convey what local electric cooperatives stand for: Integrity, Accountability, Community Involvement and Innovation.

GreenTouch Day, and the sponsorship of Minnesota State Parks and Trails, fit well with the Touchstone Energy commitment. During the past 15 years, Minnesota’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives has organized 8,543 volunteers to donate more than 30,600 hours and provided funds to help publish the Guide to Minnesota State Parks and Trails.

“We’re very grateful to Minnesota’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives for their longstanding commitment to Minnesota state parks,” said Erika Rivers, director of Minnesota State Parks and Trails. “All those extra helping hands are much needed and appreciated.”

You need not be a member to volunteer. To be a part of GreenTouch Day and help our Minnesota state parks, R.S.V.P. by calling North Itasca Electric at (218) 743-3131 or 1 (800) 762-4048.
