New Holstein Utilities to Celebrate Public Power Week
New Holstein Utilities, along with over 2,000 other locally-owned electric utilities across the country, will celebrate Public Power Week. NHU will celebrate from September 28 through October 5. We invite you to join us in our festivities!
Public power utilities are owned by the local communities and the customers they serve. Public power utilities are non-profit and exist to provide their customers with reliable and low cost electric service, along with the best possible services. New Holstein Utilities has been providing electric service to the community (and parts of five outlying townships) since 1912. We look forward to providing the electric service to this area for many years to come!
During our week of celebration, we invite you to stop by our office at the New Holstein City Hall for refreshments. While enjoying the refreshments, you can pick up a small gift as a token of our appreciation. Also, please register to win one of the door prizes. We are giving away a 22" LCD LED television along with a gas grill. One entry per household please!
As a public power utility, we are very concerned with what goes on in our community. With the continued challenges facing our national and local economy, many families continue to struggle just to provide the basics. For many years, New Holstein Utilities has provided some support for the local food pantry. During Public Power Week, we will again be conducting our annual food drive. Customers are encouraged to bring in an unexpired, non-perishable food or personal care product to help the local food pantry. The food pantry is very low on food at this time and could use the support. Items in need at the food pantry include box meals, tuna, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, pasta, rice, spaghetti sauce, cereals and other dry goods. Canned fruits and vegetables will also be accepted but the food pantry has a good supply of these items at this time.
Students have also been invited to bring in non-perishable or personal care items to their school. Students who bring in an item(s) can register to win a prize from NHU. A student may register for each item brought in, up to a maximum of four registrations. Participating schools include New Holstein Elementary, New Holstein Middle School and Divine Savior. Home school students may bring items in to the NHU office located at New Holstein City Hall.
All winners will be contacted shortly after the end of Public Power Week
Thank you for celebrating with us!
