Do you contribute to Operation Round Up with your bill each month?
If you’re part of the nearly 75% of members who do, thank you for starting 2022 off right with your donation, which will support many organizations throughout the year!
For those who need a refresher, LaGrange County REMC’s Operation Round Up program allows members to round up their electric bills each month. This money is then put into a fund and given back locally through community grants each quarter.
You may think it’s just a bit of extra change, but to the nonprofit organizations who receive these grants, it’s so much more.
The first quarter distribution of Operation Round Up funding included:
LaGrange County Parks, which was awarded $2,000 to help pay for the horse drawn wagon rides at their Maple Syrup Days on March 19-20. With the grant, the parks department can offer the rides free of charge to the public.
For local nonprofit organizations who are seeking funding for a project, please fill out and return an application to the LaGrange County REMC office by Friday, April 1, to be considered for the next round of Operation Round Up disbursements. Applications can be downloaded from the REMC website, lagrangeremc.com.
