(CASSOPOLIS) – An area organization has joined in a craze to raise money for ALS.
On Friday afternoon, 41 employees of Midwest Energy Cooperative gathered in their Cassopolis headquarters parking lot to participate in a company ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. The cooperative and many of its employees made a donation to the ALS Association in honor of co-op members who have experienced the devastating impact of ALS.
Roger Bowser, manager of energy programs and services, represented the Midwest employee family in introducing the challenge. He shared the story of his uncle's struggle with ALS, and how he watched his father do everything possible to help him.
Midwest has issued a challenge to Kemner-Iott Insurance, Cass Dental and to Cherryland Electric Cooperative in Cadillac. Those businesses are encourage to have their own challenge by the end of next week and support ALS.
