WORTHINGTON - The generosity of Nobles Cooperative Electric member-owners continues to affect communities in the region.

 

Numerous small donations - an average of only 50 cents a month - have made an impact of more than $317,000 since the program began. Member-owners who participate in Operation Round Up allow the cooperative to round up their monthly electric bill to the next dollar. This small change is pooled into large amounts that a volunteer trust board oversees.

 

Every penny goes to those in need. Here is the latest round of donations, which totals $16,050:
