RECENTLY, THE OPERATION ROUND-UP Board of Directors at Central Texas Electric Cooperative approved a grant to Bluebonnet CASA.
Bluebonnet CASA provides and supports trained community volunteers to advocate for the best interest of abused and neglected children involved in the court system, and to facilitate placement of these children in safe, loving and permanent homes as quickly as possible. The Bluebonnet CASA service area covers five counties, including Mason, Menard, McCulloch and Kimble, which are also included in the CTEC service area. CTEC Board Directors Mark Hahn and Jack Asbill as well as CTEC Operation Round Up Chairman Curtis Schulze, presented the check for $1,500 to Bluebonnet CASA Executive Director Lisa Goehmann and Program Assistant Christie Lehmberg.
“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, nearly 1,400 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 36,000 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.
