RECENTLY, THE OPERATION ROUND-UP Board of Directors at Central Texas Electric Cooperative approved two grants for families that were victims of fire.
A grant in the amount of $2,000 was given to Mason County resident, Barbie McGowan. Her home was partially burned in a fire and while home insurance helped with some expenses, it did not cover all the damage. Many items were also lost in the devastating fire including multiple appliances and clothing.
Stephanie and Corky Arizola’s, of Kerr County, lost their home in a recent fire. While the family, including their twin children were able to escape safely, their home was completely destroyed. The Operation Round-Up board approved a grant for $1,000.
Operation Round-Up is a program that’s been around the Hill Country area for many years, and it’s all because of CTEC members who voluntarily participate. By having their monthly electric bills “rounded up” to the next whole dollar each month, over 1,500 enrolled co-op members have been able to make a difference in the lives of neighbors in their communities.
CTEC members who haven’t signed up for Operation Round-Up yet can do so simply by picking up the phone and calling the nearest CTEC office to enroll one or all of their accounts. The average contribution comes to 50 cents per month, or just $6 for an entire year.
One-time monetary contributions to Operation Round-Up are also accepted. Just call any of the member service representatives at a nearby CTEC office and tell them your preference. All donations are tax-deductible.
It’s an easy, inexpensive way to become part of a great community program through your co-op membership.
