The Baldwin County Electric Membership Charitable Foundation presented grants to two 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.
The North Baldwin Ecumenical Association received one of the two grants. The organization, which is based out of Bay Minette, offers assistance for basic living needs such as food and housing for families facing financial hardships.
United Way of Baldwin County also received a grant. The donation from Operation Round Up will contribute to the agency’s efforts to help families in the local community achieve education, financial stability and healthy lives.
