Verendrye Electric Cooperative recently teamed up with CoBank and Basin Electric Power Cooperative to donate $15,000 to the Magic City Discovery Center to help build a children’s museum in Minot.

Each organization donated $5,000 to the project. CoBank, a cooperative bank headquartered near Denver, is one of Verendrye’s lenders. The bank matched Verendrye’s $5,000 donation through its Sharing Success program.

Basin Electric, headquartered in Bismarck, is an electric cooperative that generates power for distribution cooperatives like Verendrye across 9 states. Verendrye and 140 other electric cooperatives own Basin Electric. Basin also matched Verendrye’s $5,000 donation.

“Verendrye Electric is proud to be a part of this project that will help children learn and have fun,” said Verendrye Manager Randy Hauck. “We’re thankful to have partners like CoBank and Basin Electric who contribute to the communities they serve.”
