The Marshall County REMC Operation Round Up® board awarded $7,549 to the following organizations:

Bread of Life Community Food Pantry received funding to purchase an automated external defibrillator (AED) to provide lifesaving care for clients or volunteers who may need it. Bread of Life provides food to supplement the needs of the poor.

Brotherhood of Professional Police Officers and Emergency Services will use its grant to provide gift cards to senior citizens during the holiday season. Since they are on limited or fixed incomes they often cannot afford to buy needed medicines and food.

David’s Courage will use its funding for an instructor, workbook and materials needed to implement the SMART Recovery Program. David’s Courage provides spiritual, emotional, physical and financial health to those struggling with addiction.

Marshall County Lifelong Learning Network will purchase equipment for its vet science program with its grant. The Marshall County Lifelong Learning Network’s mission is to create a lifelong continuum of engaging educational experiences that are affordable, accessible, and relevant for those who live and work in Marshall County.


The next round of grants will be awarded in January. Charitable organizations within the Marshall County REMC service territory are eligible to apply. The organization does not have to be a a member of Marshall County REMC. Applications are available at www.marshallremc.com.
