On Tuesday, Oct. 25, the Marshall County REMC Operation Round Up board awarded three grants to the following organizations: 

Bread of Life Community Food Pantry received funding to help upgrade the lighting in its distribution area. This will help the pantry meet food service codes and help with energy efficiency. The Bread of Life Food Pantry provides nutritious food to supplement the needs of the poor. Service is offered in a spirit that maintains the dignity, self-respect and privacy of those served.

The Potawatomi Park Inc. will use its grant to complete the interior of its nature center addition. The Potatwatomi Wildlife Park conserves, protects and restores the area’s natural, historical and cultural features for present and future generations. 

The Trojan Trade at Triton Junior/Senior High School received funding to help purchase clothing, shoes, toiletries, backpacks, school supplies and food for students and families. Through the Trojan Trade, students in need can receive clothing, hygiene and food items free of charge. 

The Operation Round Up program allows Marshall County REMC members to reach out to worthy causes in the community and work together to help others. Thank you to those members who round up their electric bills to the next highest dollar each month and to the Marshall County Community Foundation for making these donations possible. 

Apply for a grant

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 member of Marshall County REMC. Applications are available at www.marshallremc.com.
