Operation Round Up® gives Paulding Putnam Electric Co-op members the option of having their bills rounded up to the nearest dollar every month, with those extra few cents going to benefit people in need within the co-op’s service territory. And this quarter, $9,000 was given to worthy programs.  The following groups were given grants on Oct. 27th at Paulding Putnam Electric Co-op’s Office.

Paulding High School- $1500.
Friends of the Paulding Chamber- $1,000
Quarry Farm-$1500
YMCA of Putnam County-$1500

Paulding Putnam Electric Co-op began doing Operation Round Up in July 2010. Currently, over 8700 of the co-op’s 12,900 members participate and to date local charities have received over $250,000.  The Paulding Putnam Trust/Operation Round Up Board decides on donations quarterly.  Another round of grants will be given at the end of this year and the Operation Round Up Board is accepting applications.
