The ALS Association is an American nonprofit organization that raises money for research and patient services, promotes awareness about and advocates in state and federal government on issues related to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
This cause is very near and dear to the family at Randy’s Electric. Tina is a valuable employee here at Randy’s Electric. In 2000, Tina’s sister, Dee Dee, passed away from a form of ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. After Dee Dee’s diagnosis, it was discovered that other family members may have also suffered from the disease. This link has inspired the family to continually fundraise for the ALS Association and form a walking team that has been going strong for over fifteen years.
The “Ice Bucket Challenge” took the internet by storm and raised over $115 million dollars for the cause. Because of these donations, researchers were able to discover a gene that is tied to ALS. This is amazing, but only the beginning of a long road to find a cure. Please join us in supporting the effort by joining the Twin Cities Walk on September 16, 2017. If you would like to learn more or join our team, please visit the registration site, team name: DLJ (Dee Dee’s Laughter and Joy)

School should be an environment where kids can feel safe, healthy, and ready to learn! That’s why it’s so important that the cafeteria’s in our district be able to provide affordable — and even free — lunchtime meals to students.
42% of kids in Minnesota School District 279 are eligible for free or reduced-priced meals…but that means that over 11,000 currently aren’t. If a family doesn’t qualify for these meals, they aren’t denied food, but the lunch debt from those kids’ meals can add up. Currently, it’s around $12,000, which is three times higher than normal.
That’s why Randy’s Electric supports Passion Church in its efforts to completely pay off Maple Grove’s lunch debt with a charitable donation! As a Christian company, Randy’s Electric is particularly supportive of this effort and has already made its donation.
Here at Randy’s Electric, we aren’t just a home service company — we’re a part of this community. Call Randy’s Electric for service or contact us about a local community you think deserves a donation today.
