WFYI profiles teen inspired by electric cooperative philanthropy project

Tipmont REMC member  and Youth Tour 2013 alumnus Wesley Boone has been profiled by the Indianapolis PBS station, WFYI. Boone started Gear Going Global, an organization devoted to sending new and gently used sporting gear to children in developing countries. As a then-high school junior, he was inspired to launch the initiative after watching Power to the People, the documentary that followed 32 electric cooperative linemen as they brought electricity to three remote villages in Guatemala. Wes is a freshman at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis studying philanthropy. Watch the profile.
