What is Operation Round Up?

We are pleased to offer a program designed to gather voluntary contributions from members to assist people in the communities served by your cooperative. Funds have been disbursed to local libraries, senior scholarship, schools, police departments, churches, and other organizations. Guidelines for awarding this money address needs such as food, clothing, shelter, health care and other community services. Funds are never used for political or administrative purposes. 

Each month, members who wish to participate in Operation Round Up can have Orange County REMC automatically round their electric and/or fiber bill to the next highest dollar. The cost to you will be less than a dollar a month and will average about $6.00 a year. Think about how many people and organizations can be helped with this small act. Since 2003, $601,746.23 has been given back to local communities through Operation Round Up.
