GreyStone employees volunteer their time to help nonprofits in the community through the co-op's GreyStone Gives program.

GreyStone Power, which serves portions of south Cobb County, announced that a group of employees recently volunteered at Warehouse of Hope in Paulding County.

In 2018, GreyStone Gives was established to allow employees eight hours per year to volunteer with an approved 501c3 nonprofit.

Warehouse of Hope is a clothing and food bank serving about 500 families per week. While at the food bank, GreyStone employees had a chance to stock the food shelves, sort clothing, clear clothing rooms and portion out rice.

The staff was able to portion out 500 pounds of rice in two hours. This is a task that normally takes four days. In the four hours that GreyStone employees volunteered, they did about 10 hours’ worth of work.

GreyStone Power is a member-owned cooperative providing electricity and related services to more than 117,000 members in eight counties, including portions of Cobb, Paulding, Douglas, Fulton, Carroll, Bartow, Fayette and Coweta counties.
