Did you know your spare change is staying right here in the community and positively impacting your neighbors, friends and family?
By participating in Noble REMC’s Operation Round Up program – and allowing your electric bills to be rounded up each month – those extra pennies go into a trust fund and are given back locally through community grants each quarter.
When we all chip in a little, we can make a big impact. See for yourself.
The second quarter distribution of the Operation Round Up Trust Fund awarded $12,675 to 11 different organizations in our community, including:
- Kendallville Lions Club, $750, downtown fundraising popcorn stand
- LaOtto Community Park, Inc., $1,000, community building project
- Orange Township Fire Department, $2,500, uniforms
- Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry, $1,000, meat processing
