Operation Round Up application deadline is March 1
Program offered through Nobles Cooperative Electric.
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. You see these types of stories 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, nickel, dime and quarter at a time through Operation Round Up. Thanks to the generosity of members, a lot of good work is done for the communities we live in.
Operation Round Up is a community program of people helping people. Through this voluntary program, approximately 59% 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, and 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.
The trust board will accept applications until March 1. Call Nobles Cooperative Electric at (507) 372-7331, (507) 836-6107 or 1-800-776-0517; visit noblesce.coop or email email@example.com to request an application.
