Chariton Valley Electric Cooperative Awards Operation Round Up Funds to Three Local Organizations.
The Chariton Valley Electric Operation Round Up® Foundation Board is proud to announce the recipients of Operation Round Up®’s 2022 first quarter funds to three local organizations.
In April, the Operation Round Up® Foundation Board reviewed the submitted applications and awarded funds to three applicants, totaling $6,100.
The Friends of Oakland Cemetery was awarded $2,650 to aid in the final phase of the Liberty Park-Veterans Memorial and Cremation Garden where they plan to install a black metal safety railing on top of the concrete retaining walls.
The Lucas County Fair Association was awarded $1,450 where the funds will be used to purchase a table-top, interactive cow display that will promote agriculture education through eight liftable panels with trivia questions and/or a wheel visitors can spin to read facts.
The Monroe County Council on Aging was awarded $2,000 where the funds will be used to remove and replace the heaved and cracked concrete sidewalk in front of the Leisure Lounge in Albia to increase safety for the senior citizens and staff, as well as passersby.
During Operation Round Up’s® two-year lifespan, over $56,000 dollars has been collected, with $53,400 distributed to 17 worthwhile community, youth, educational and environmental programs. CVEC is grateful our members continue to donate their small change each month that is impacting lives locally and hope our membership continues to see the value and benefit this program brings to the communities we serve.
