Make the most of your spare change
Pennies you may not miss can make a huge difference for important groups in our communities.
With 23 percent of our members participating, Operation Round Up (ORU), the charitable trust ECE started in 1997, approves grants each quarter to first responders, food distribution programs, educational opportunities for youth, and more. So far, the three grant cycles of 2019 have received $184,388 in requests. Thanks to those who participate in ORU, $68,764 were awarded to area programs.
Just think what we could do if we had more pennies. Join ORU and help make a bigger dent in the needs of our local organizations.
For less than $1 per month, you can support local organizations by “rounding up” your bill to the next dollar.
