AREA CARES MISSION STATEMENT: Area Cares was created in 2015 to increase the community involvement of Area Energy & Electric, Inc and its employees in the areas where we work and live. The first project was in December of 2015 where Area Cares bears were delivered to Wilson Health for distribution to the pediatric patients at the hospital during the Christmas holiday. Funds raised from this run will be used to expand programs like this and increase the well-being of the community.
Help us deliver bears to Kids in the hospital:
