The Baldwin County Electric Membership Charitable Foundation presented grants to two local agencies in June, the United Way of Baldwin County and the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Boys Ranch.
These grants were made possible through Baldwin EMC’s Operation Round Up program. This program collects money for charitable causes by rounding up participating members’ electric bills to the next highest dollar amount. The extra change is then used to fund grants.
Grants must meet one of six qualifying categories: food, clothing, shelter, health, environment and education.
