Recently, the Operation Round-Up Board of Directors at Central Texas Electric Cooperative approved a grant the Gillespie County Committee on Aging.
Locally known as the Golden Hub, the committee provides opportunities to enhance the quality of life for senior citizens in Gillespie County by providing nutritious meals as well as social and health related activities. The grant of $1,500 will provide help with the Meals on Wheels program. The check was presented to Golden Hub Director, Denise Usener by Operation Round-Up Board President, Bernard Selensky.
“Neighbors helping neighbors” is a practice that’s been around the Hill Country area for many years, and it’s what CTEC members who voluntarily participate in Operation Round-Up have done in this case.
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 several families.
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.
CTEC serves more than 40,000 meters. For less than the cost of a soda per month, co-op members can have their accounts “rounded up,” too. It’s an easy, inexpensive way to become part of a great community program through your co-op membership.
