Local groups receive Operation Round Up grants

Operation Round Up logoThe Operation Round Up program is simple, but effective. Orange County REMC members allow the co-op to round their monthly bills up to the next dollar, and the extra change is collected in a fund overseen by an independent board of trustees. Organizations in the local community can then apply for grants from this fund. Operation Round Up has given back more than $400,000 to the local community. Pictured below are some of the recent recipients.
