Operation Round Up Presents Grants in April

The Baldwin County Electric Membership Charitable Foundation presented grants to four local charities in March. These grants were made possible through Baldwin EMC’s Operation Round Up program, which collects money for charitable causes by rounding up participating members’ electric bills to the next highest dollar amount, with the extra change used to fund grants. Grants must meet one of the six qualifying categories which are food, clothing, shelter, health, environment and education.

Grants were provided to the following organizations:

  • CARE House of Baldwin County, which provides services and resources for child victims of sexual abuse and severe physical abuse.
  • Under His Wings, a residential facility in Robertsdale for troubled teenage girls.
  • Prodisee Pantry, which provides emergency food assistance for an average of    1,000 families each month.
  • South Baldwin Literacy Council, which offers tutoring and other educational programs.

Baldwin EMC is a member-owned electric cooperative serving approximately 68,000 meters in Baldwin and Monroe Counties in southwest Alabama, including Alabama’s Gulf Coast.
