June 7, 2024—The Kerrville Public Utility Board (KPUB) celebrated the “Public Power Day of Giving” on Friday, June 7, 2024. This annual event involves over 2,000 not-for-profit, community-owned electric utilities across the country participating in community service and giving activities.

KPUB employees, who live, work, and raise their families in Kerrville, demonstrated their commitment to the community beyond providing safe, reliable, and low-cost power. Public power employees are local individuals serving their communities and working to improve the quality of life for their neighbors.

As part of the celebration, a portion of KPUB’s team volunteered at the Riverside Nature Center, assisting with various outdoor projects. Additionally, KPUB donated 17 box fans to the Salvation Army’s Social Service office. These fans will be distributed for free to community members in need during the Texas heat waves. Community members can pick up a box fan at the Salvation Army office located at 855 Hays St. The office hours are 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m.-noon on Friday.

“As a public power utility company, KPUB is a fan of giving back to our community,” said Allison Bueché, Director of Customer & Community Relations. “We are proud to give our time year-round through various volunteer efforts and make a difference in the town where we live and raise our families.”
