Caring For Community: Neighbors Helping Neighbors

The story of COVID-19 is one that is being written day-by-day. The number of people impacted by job loss is unfathomable. As a not-for-profit electric cooperative, South River EMC is committed to helping members and the community.

Many people have had to delay paying critical bills in order to put food on the table while they await an unemployment check. It’s time to come together to help our neighbors and friends.

South River EMC has two programs designed to assist members and to provide a mechanism for members of the community to help one another.

Drive-Thru Availability April 27 And Beyond

In an effort to adhere to the Governor's stay-at-home order, to slow the spread of the coronavirus and to protect members and our employees, while at the same time staying available to our members, we are limiting the hours our drive-thru windows are open.

Adjusted Drive-Thru Days:
Monday, April 27 (8 - 5 )
Wednesday, April 29 (8 - 5)
Friday, May 1 (8 - 5)

**Drive-Thru Hours will resume Monday through Friday service beginning Monday, May 4.**
