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. What do they all have in common? Thanks to Nobles Cooperative Electric's Operation Round Up program, the answer 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 (ORU).

Operation Round Up is a voluntary program in which approximately 67 percent of Nobles Cooperative Electric members have elected to round up their electric bills to the nearest dollar. By doing so, members raise about $1,750 per month. These funds go into a trust fund administered by Nobles-Murray Rural Electric Trust Board.
Operation Round Up provides financial assistance to non-profit organizations in Murray, Nobles and adjacent counties. Organizations may request funds for projects involving community service, economic development, education and youth, environment and disaster relief.

The trust board is now accepting applications, which are due March 1. Call Nobles Cooperative Electric at 372-7331, visit noblesce.coop or email nce@noblesce.com to request an application.
