The Clay Electric Foundation board has approved seven organizations to be the first recipients of grant funding from the Operation Round Up program.
Operation Round Up is a program in which participating members’ bills are rounded up to the nearest dollar, with those funds being used to benefit organizations in Clay Electric’s service area for the purpose of improving the quality of life in those communities. Clay Electric launched the program in October 2016.
Grant recipients are determined monthly by the nine-member volunteer Foundation board. The January 2017 recipients were awarded a total of $71,160. They are:
- ACORN Clinic (Alachua, Bradford, Union counties) - $10,000
- Lake Area Ministries (Clay, Bradford, Putnam counties) - $10,000
- Fort McCoy Little League (Marion County) - $12,160
- Happy House (Columbia and Suwannee counties) - $12,000
- Rodeheaver Boys Ranch (located in Putnam, serves all counties) - $10,000
