Noble REMC members’ contributions through our Operation Round Up grant program continue to make huge improvements and strides in our communities. Our latest disbursement awarded more than $23,000 and impacted 13 organizations and projects.

The program’s mission to give back to the community wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our members. With more than 91% participating in the program, the pennies donated by rounding up your bill each month are making a big impact.
