Recently, the Operation Round-Up Board of Directors at Central Texas Electric Cooperative approved a grant for New Horizons in Llano County.
New Horizons is a nonprofit that relies on local donations without government aid to help those living in Llano and the western part of Llano County with living expenses like utility bills, medication, or rent. Families or individuals are screened and those that are approved will have payment made directly to the business or entity providing the service.
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.
