RECENTLY, THE OPERATION ROUND-UP Board of Directors at Central Texas Electric Cooperative approved a grant for the family of Zoey Crenwelge.
The daughter of Zack and Whitney Crenwelge, Zoey was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at four months old. Neuroblastoma is a cancer that develops from immature nerve cells that are found in different areas of the body but most commonly occur in and around adrenal glands. With the rigorous treatment schedule, Zoey had in front of her, Whitney was forced to leave her teaching career to help care for her youngest child during her hospital stays. This grant will help ease just some of the financial burden the family faces in her ongoing treatment. To follow and support Zoey’s journey, search for Fight 4 Zoey on Facebook.
This donation is thanks entirely to the CTEC members who voluntarily participate in Operation Round-Up. By having their monthly electric bills “rounded-up” to the next whole dollar each month, CTEC members enrolled have been able to make a difference in the lives of several families and organizations that benefit our communities.
CTEC members who haven’t signed up for Operation Round-Up yet can do so simply by calling their local CTEC office to enroll one or all of their accounts or sign up online at ctec.coop. The average contribution comes to 50 cents per month, or just $6 for an entire year and all donations are tax-deductible. It is an easy, inexpensive way to become part of a great community program through your co-op membership.
