Pay It Forward March – Rickey Roberson

Field Services Technician Rickey Roberson paid forward $250 each to Miracle Hill Alumni Ministries and Spartanburg Regional Foundation’s Hospice Special Needs Fund.

Miracle Hill Ministries is a nonprofit organization in the Upstate of South Carolina dedicated to providing extensive services to adults in the form of food, shelter, clothing, counseling, personal development, and addiction recovery. They also serve children who have been removed from their families through a foster home community and residential foster care program.

Rickey’s wife Kim says Miracle Hill “is special to Rickey’s heart. Not many people know that he was raised in a children’s home. I believe this gave him the strong work ethic that he has but also his appreciation of everything that the Lord has blessed him with.”

The Spartanburg Regional Foundation’s hospice division raises funds that help cover the cost of medications, utility bills and hospital beds for financially qualifying patients. Spartanburg Regional Hospice is a community-based and not-for-profit hospice serving patients and families since 1980. They offer specialized physical, emotional, and spiritual support to patients and their loved ones in Spartanburg, Greenville, Cherokee and Union counties. The goals of hospice care are to enhance quality of life – caring for the “whole person,” not just the illness.

Rickey says, “We were so very thankful to have them take care of my mother-in-law during the last 2 ½ months of her life. They are truly God’s Angels here on earth.”

The Pay It Forward program began in 2015.

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 will come from Laurens Electric’s charity events, which employee volunteers make possible.

Employees and the community will enable individual employees to help individuals in the community, and that’s a win-win situation.
