Your spare change makes a big difference in our communities. Thanks to our participating members for allowing their bills to be rounded up each month to the nearest dollar. Since the beginning of the program in January 2002, over $671,000 has been given back to our community. The money has been used by organizations who serve all sectors of our community: youth, seniors, young families and everyone in between.
The fourth quarter distribution of Operation Round Up funding totaled $9,000 and included:
LaGrange First Church of God-Night to Shine, which was awarded $5,000. Night to Shine is a prom for people with special needs 14 and older and is sponsored, in part, by the Tim Tebow Foundation. The funds will be used to help pay for the catered meal for all the guests.
Alabaster Heart Ministries, which received $2,500 to help fund its women’s conference that aims to create a Christ-centered, worshipful, engaging experience for women 16 and older.
Little Laker League, which received $1,500 to purchase new helmets, pads, footballs and other equipment for the league that has 30 participants.
