Thirteen years ago Nolin RECC members started helping others in their community by rounding up their electric bill each month through Operation Round-Up (ORU). Today over 6,600 members have signed up to be a part of ORU. Last year over $19,000 was donated to worthwhile organizations like Greenspace, Community Health Clinic, CASA of the Heartland and the Hardin County Cooperative Extension Office. In fact, over the years ORU has donated over $211,000 to organizations similar to these and with your help we can do so much more. The small change from rounding up to the nearest dollar is deposited into a special account and is used to help worthy causes and programs in the community. Local citizens make up a non-profit t board of directors that govern the program. The board reviews applications for community projects and makes decisions on when, where, and how to utilize funds. ORU participation is voluntary and open throughout the year. Any Nolin member who signs up for the program before 5 PM, December 2, 2019, will earn a chance to win $300, $200, or $100 in a cash drawing. Those already enrolled in ORU will automatically be eligible for the drawing for each active Nolin account. If you would like to help others in your community by donating under a dollar a month, check the appropriate box on the back of your electric bill that allows you to sign up for the program, or you may call the Nolin office at 270-765-6153.
