WORTHINGTON — The deadline for submitting applications for the Nobles Cooperative Electric Operation Round Up program is March 1.
NCE members help their neighbors a penny, nickel, dime and quarter at a time through Operation Round Up. Through this voluntary program, approximately 50 percent of the members of 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. These funds go into a trust fund. Nobles-Murray Rural Electric Trust Board administers the donations.
Operation Round Up is designed to provide financial assistance to non-profit organizations in the surrounding communities of Murray, Nobles and adjacent counties. Organizations that serve these communities can request funds for projects involving community service, economic development, education and youth, the environment and disaster relief.
