Fourteen local nonprofit organizations received donations in July thanks to members who participate in First Electric Cooperative’s Operation Round-Up program. The Operation Round-Up Board of Trustees, which consists of community members, approved $14,300 in
Lonoke County: Kohen’s Park Foundation, $1,000; Lonoke County Fair & Livestock Association, $1,000; Lonoke County Open Arms Shelter, $1,000 and Lonoke Exceptional School, $1,000
Pulaski County: Hearts & Hooves, $1,000
First Electric members who enroll in Operation Round-Up agree to have their electric bill rounded up to the next even dollar amount each month. That money – more than $712,000 since 1998 – funds nonprofit donations and college scholarships. To sign up or to apply for funds, visit www.firstelectric.coop or call 800-489-7405.
