Operation Round Up

Chadd Jenkins, CEO/GM of Parke County REMC spoke to the Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club about their Operation Round Up program. This program allows REMC members to “round up” their payments to the next dollar each month as a donation. Parke County REMC, through their Operation Round Up fund, provides various monetary grants to organizations in the local community. Since this fund was started in 2000 it has provided grants of over $1.1 million to local nonprofits that are making a difference in the communities where we live and serve.

Examples of grants that have been awarded include:

$2,500 for helmets to the Southmont Youth Football program

$3,000 to the New Market PTO for playground equipment

$1,075 to the Montgomery County Youth Service Bureau’s JUMP program

$1,000 for clothing to the Mountie Mission.
