Paulding Putnam Electric Co-Op Members Give Back Over $15,000 with Operation Round-Up

The Operation Round Up Board awarded $15,245 to area agencies dedicated to making an impact on the lives of residents in this region. Operation Round Up is a program which allows members to have the option to round up their bills to the nearest dollar every month, with those extra few cents going to benefit people in need within the co-op’s service territory.

Paulding Putnam 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 board is made up of PPEC members representing all of our districts and the Operation Round Up Board was pleased to announce the following organizations grants:

House of Love Ministries in Paulding, Ohio, Putnam Co. YMCA, United Way of Van Wert County, Payne Fire Dept., 4-H Camp Palmer, Paulding Soil & Water Conservation, Niswonger PAC, Junior Achievement in Indiana and Junior Achievement in Van Wert.
