In August and October, the Baldwin County Electric Membership Charitable Foundation presented grants to four local charities. 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 presented to the following organizations in August:

  • The American National Red Cross, which provides disaster recovery assistance, support for America’s military families, blood donations for hospitals, and health and safety services.
  • The Lighthouse, which provides support and shelter for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Grants were presented to the following organizations in October:

  • Mercy Medical, which provides home health care, hospice services and retirement care for Baldwin County residents.
  • Hope Haven, which offers shelter and counseling to victims of human trafficking as well as spiritual and emotional counseling.
