Pay It Forward March 2022 – Jamie Tumblin

Field Service Technician Jamie Tumblin paid forward $500 to Parkinson’s Foundation Carolinas.

Jamie made the donation in honor of his mother, and said, “I don’t think people hear about Parkinson’s as much as some other chronic diseases.”

The Parkinson’s Foundation aims to makes life better for people with Parkinson’s disease by improving care and advancing research toward a cure.

The Foundation advances expert Parkinson’s disease (PD) care, educating and empowering the Parkinson’s community and driving the understanding of Parkinson’s through research.

According to, “As a national organization with local presence and impact, we bring help and hope to the estimated one million individuals in the United States, 10 million worldwide, who are living with Parkinson’s.”

The Carolinas are home to three of 48 worldwide Parkinson’s Foundation Centers of Excellence.

The Foundation offers at helpline at 1-800-4PD-INFO (473-4636) to find the nearest PD specialist, support group, wellness and exercise classes, and answers to PD and caregiving questions.

There’s also a PD Library at with resources including videos, podcasts, webinars and other opportunities to learn about the many aspects of living well with PD.

Laurens Electric’s Pay It Forward program, begun in 2015, was born out of a desire to continue the good work of the 75 Acts of Kindness community initiative.

Every Laurens Electric Cooperative employee is entered into a random drawing to receive $500 to pay forward in any way they choose. Each month a new name is drawn, and the employee then has one month to apply the funds toward their own act of kindness.

This initiative is budget-neutral; the funds come from Laurens Electric’s charity events, which employee volunteers make possible.
