Operation Round Up November 2022



Each month, members who wish to participate in Operation Round Up can have Orange County REMC automatically round their electric and/or fiber bills to the next highest dollar. The amount contributed by each member is less than a dollar a month and will average about $6 a year. Those extra few dollars from our members can have a large impact on groups and organizations making a big difference in our community. In the most recent meeting of the the Operation Round Up board of trustees, six local organizations received grants. Details of the funds awarded are listed below.


Families Rising received $500 for a website and printing


Orleans Community School received $2,500 for the Team Peace Resilience Program


Orleans Municipal Fire Department received $1,500 to fund new radios


Safe Haven Recovery Engagement Center LLC received $1,700 to fund feminine hygiene products for inmates at the OC Jail


Stingerz Dance Team received $1,000 for competitions fees and other expenses


Melton Public Library received a $500 grant to a new computer
