According to REC's Web site:
"Operation Round Up lets REC members volunteer to have their electric bills rounded up to the next highest whole dollar, with the extra change dedicated to charitable causes.
"The purpose of Operation Round Up is to support individuals, school programs, philanthropic groups, non-profit organizations, rescue squads, fire departments and other deserving causes within REC's service area. A board of directors reviews applications for support and decides how donations are made. The board is made up of seven REC members, who volunteer their time."
