Last month, SVEConnect partner FiberRise, a fiber engineering and construction consulting firm based out of Huntsville, Alabama, presented employees of SVEConnect and Sequachee Valley Electric Cooperative (SVEC) with a $10,000 donation to benefit the Multi-County County Cancer Support Network (MCCSN). The donation was given in conjunction with SVEC’s annual Christmas Auction that benefits the MCCSN. Like electric cooperatives, part of FiberRise’s mission is to improve the lives of the communities they serve. They are especially invested in giving back to St. Jude Research Hospital.
“Just as SVEConnect is providing access to better technology to improve the lives of Marion County residents,” said FiberRise CEO Tommy Harmon, “FiberRise is committed to serving our local Huntsville community and also our fiber partners’ communities with donations both financial and time-based.”
“Thank you to our partners at FiberRise for the generous donation to the MCCSN,” said Sequachee Valley Electric Cooperative and SVEConnect President/CEO Mike Partin. “We appreciate working with a group that holds the same values as our cooperative. FiberRise recognizes the importance of giving back and they are making a difference in our local community.”
The Multi-County Cancer Support Network (MCCSN) is a non-profit organization in Tennessee that provides educational, emotional and financial support to cancer patients in eight counties including Marion and Grundy.
