Operation Round Up
Since 1937, when residents of Northeast Texas banded together to form Farmers Electric Cooperative, members have consistently demonstrated a desire and commitment to improve the quality of life in their communities.
While Farmers EC has expanded over the years, our members have retained the same desire to help those in need. Since May 2007, Farmers EC members have had the opportunity to help their communities by participating in Operation Round Up.
What is Operation Round Up? Operation Round Up is a voluntary program that gives members the option to have their monthly bill rounded up to the next highest dollar. For example, if your bill is $67.45, it would be rounded up to $68.00, with the additional 55 pennies going to Operation Round Up. The money raised by the program is used to directly support social, charitable, and civic programs in our community. Your pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters collectively can add up to be used to:
- Support local emergency service providers
- Nurture a healthy, independent lifestyle for the elderly
- Provide supervised and safe activities for our children
- Give a helping hand to our neighbors who need financial assistance
Your monthly donation could range from one penny to 99 cents, but nationally, the rounding-up feature averages out to about 50 cents per month – just $6 a year. This is only small change for most of us, but imagine the power when your contribution is combined with those of your fellow cooperative members.
Keep checking back here for updates! As the program moves forward, we will keep you informed about some of the ways your valued contributions are being put to good use in the local community.
