Nineteen nonprofit organizations received funds recently through First Electric Cooperative’s Operation Round-Up program. Community members on the Operation Round-Up Board of Trustees approved $17,500 in donations.

Recipients by county include:

•In Lonoke County, Arkansas Waterfowl Association received $500 and Lonoke County Museum, Lonoke County Safe Haven and Scott Fire Protection District each received $1,000.

•In Pulaski County, Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance and Valentine/Wooten Awareness Council each received $1,000 and North Pulaski Community Center received $500.

The program is possible thanks to the generosity of First Electric members who enroll in Operation Round-Up and agree to have their electric bill rounded up to the next even dollar amount each month. That money – more than $655,500 since 1998 – funds nonprofit donations and student scholarships. To sign up or to apply for funds, visit www.firstelectric.coop or call 800-489-7405.
