Pee Dee Electric Cooperative employees helped make Christmas a little brighter for children around the Pee Dee today. They adopted 12 families in need, totaling 36 children this year. They had cookies, milk and presents with Santa at the Marion County Administration building this morning and at Pee Dee Electric Cooperative in Darlington this afternoon. Some opened presents with employees and some chose to take home their gifts to open later but everyone’s faces were a little brighter, including PDEC employees. Wishing the Pee Dee a very Merry Christmas!
