The Baldwin County Electric Membership Charitable Foundation presented grants to three local agencies in September. Those agencies include the following:
- The Lighthouse, an organization that provides resources and advocacy for victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse in Baldwin and surrounding counties.
- The Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation, which provides services and resources to support the mental health needs of young people throughout Baldwin County.
- Prodisee Pantry, a nonprofit ministry that addresses physical, emotional and spiritual hunger in our local community.
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.
