This donation was from the Empire District–Liberty Utilities Central Company.  The Economic Security Corporation of the Southwest Area, the Ozarks Area Community Action Corporation, and the West Central Missouri Community Action Agency each received $500,000. 
  
These agencies will use the money to help more residents lower their utility bills.
 
“This is an unbelievable opportunity for us to be able to do more houses, do more to the houses, and hire more staff for the community,” explained ESC Weatherization Director Ryan Peterson. 
 
This donation will also help the agencies complete more projects at one time.
