Applications sought for Operation Round Up funding
Nobles Cooperative Electric is currently seeking applications for its Operation Round Up program, which is designed to provide financial assistance to non-profit organizations in the surrounding communities of Murray, Nobles and adjacent counties.
Through the voluntary Operation Round Up program, 60 percent of the members of Nobles Cooperative Electric have elected to have their electric bills rounded up to the nearest dollar. As a group, Nobles Cooperative Electric members raise more than $2,000 per month. These Round Up funds go into a trust fund. The Nobles-Murray Rural Electric Trust Board administers the donations.
Organizations can request funds for projects involving community service, economic development, education and youth, environment and disaster relief.
The deadline for submitting applications is Sept. 1. Call Nobles Cooperative Electric at 372-7331 or 1-800-776-0517, visit its website (www.noblesce.coop) or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application.
