Annual Coat & Food Drive
Each October, in the spirit of Co-op Month, Lower Yellowstone Electric Association (LYREA) holds a coat and food drive.
You can drop off any monetary donations, nonperishable food items or hygiene supplies, such as laundry detergent, toothpaste or deodorant, at LYREA office between Oct. 1st-31st. The items will be delivered to the Richland County Food Bank.
If you have any coats, gloves, boots or any other winter gear, please keep LYREA's coat drive in mind. All winter clothing will be donated to the Salvation Army in Sidney.
In October 2014, the Richland County Food Bank recieved 200 lbs of food and $2,500 of monetary donations collected during the annual food drive held at Lower Yellowstone Electric's. The Salvation Army recieved an abundance of coats and other winter gear. Thank you for all of your generous donations!
