LEOTI–Wheatland Electric Cooperative, Inc. announced today that its Sharing Success Fund, managed by the Scott Community Foundation, has awarded a $1,000 grant to the City of Leoti.

The funds will help install electrical outlets on light poles to add Christmas lights across four city blocks in the downtown area of Leoti.

“These additional lights will promote holiday cheer and pride in our community,” says Councilwoman Jody Crouch.

The Scott Community Foundation began formally accepting applications for grants from the Wheatland Electric Sharing Success Fund from non-profit organizations on December 1, 2012.  Wheatland Electric and CoBank have each contributed $10,000 this year to the fund. The program will continue to run until the funds are exhausted.

Non-profit groups interested in receiving funding from the Wheatland Electric Sharing Success Fund can apply online. Questions should be referred to Alli Conine, Manager of Member Services & Corporate Communications, at 620-874-4563 or aconine@weci.net.
