When we think of how to have the greatest impact in our community, Noble REMC looks at a multitude of worthy causes across our service territory.
Our Operation Round Up program is a large contributor to this mission. Through the program, grants are distributed each quarter to local nonprofits working hard to improve community members’ quality of life.
With more than 85% of our members participating in the program, the pennies donated by rounding up their bills each month are making a big impact, from assisting local schools to food banks to healthcare facilities.
The fourth quarter distribution of the Operation Round Up Trust Fund awarded $10,219 to six different organizations in our community, including:
- Central Noble Jr.-Sr. High School, $1,000, PE/Health equipment and food
- Central Noble Elementary Fifth Grade Class, $1,044, educational field trip
- McMillen Health, $1,000, preventative health education program
- Community Harvest Food Bank, $1,500, Noble County Farm Wagon
- St. Martin’s Healthcare, Inc., $3,175, AED and accessories
- Country Meadow Elementary School, $2,500, outdoor games and equipment
Thank you again to those members who choose to participate in the program and contribute to improving the quality of life in our area. None of this would be possible without your generosity.
