WORTHINGTON — Nobles Cooperative Electric’s deadline for applications to receive funds from its Operation Round Up is Sept. 1.

Operation Round Up is a community program of people helping people. Through this voluntary program, 60% of the members of Nobles Cooperative Electric have elected to have their electric bills rounded up to the nearest dollar. As a group, Nobles Cooperative Electric members raise over $2,000 per month. These Round Up funds go into a trust fund. The 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, environment and disaster relief.

Call Nobles Cooperative Electric at 372-7331 or 800-776-0517, visit or email to request an application.
