COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - Nine area organizations received awards this month from the 4-County Electric Power Association Foundation.

More than $47,000 were distributed Monday at the foundation's meeting at 4-County's corporate center in Columbus.

4-County believes in helping the communities it serves. That's why the electric cooperative launched the 4-County Foundation, a community service program.

"What we do every couple of months, we give out community grants to groups around our service territory - folks like volunteer fire departments, law enforcement, local schools, community action organization and groups that need funding to make impacts in their communities," said Jon Turner of 4-County.

Since the foundation's inception in February 2015, nearly $850,000 have been dispersed to organizations in 4-County's service area.
