Operation Round Up November 2023

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 each month. 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 greatly impact groups and organizations, making a big difference in our community. Seven local organizations received grants in the November 2023 Operation Round Up board of trustees meeting. Details of the funds awarded are listed below.
