WORTHINGTON — A local school needs to provide books for underprivileged students. A local hospice needs new equipment and a local fire department needs to raise money for pagers. These types of stories are seen on the news and read them in the papers. What have they all got in common?
Thanks to Nobles Cooperative Electric’s Operation Round Up program, the answer to this question is “help in time of need.”
Nobles Cooperative Electric members help their neighbors a penny, a nickel, a dime and a quarter at a time through Operation Round Up (ORU). Through this voluntary program, approximately 50 percent of the members of Nobles Cooperative Electric (NCE) have elected to have their electric bills rounded up to the nearest dollar. As a group, NCE members raise about $1,000 per month.
Operation Round Up is designed to provide financial assistance to non-profit organizations in the surrounding communities of Murray, Nobles and adjacent counties.
The trust board is currently accepting applications. The deadline for submitting applications is March 1. Call Nobles Cooperative Electric at 372-7331 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application.
