NEXT OPERATION ROUND UP APPLICATION DEADLINE IN DEC.

Wednesday, November 5, 2008

NORTH BALTIMORE, Ohio – The next application deadline for Hancock-Wood Electric Cooperative’s Operation Round Up program is Friday, Dec. 5, 2008. Applications will be reviewed at the next quarterly meeting to be held in February 2009.

Operation Round Up automatically rounds up Hancock-Wood members’ electric bills to the next highest dollar, with the rounded up money going to the Operation Round Up fund. The board which oversees the distribution of this fund is seeking qualifying area individuals and organizations to receive its available funds. Qualifying individuals and organizations must be members and/or communities served by Hancock-Wood Electric Cooperative needing monies for special or emergency needs, not ordinary expenses. No utility expenses qualify.

Eligible funding categories include community service, education and youth, community economic assistance, environment and disaster relief. Donations are not limited to these categories, however, political issues or campaigns are not eligible for grants.

To apply, individuals and groups may download an application at Hancock-Wood’s website: http://www.hwelectric.com/operationroundup.htm.

We demonstrate our Concern for Community by volunteering and donating to local charitable causes. Nearly $500,000 in grants have been distributed in the last decade through grants and Operation Round Up funds to individuals and organizations in need. We also provide assistance to Habitat for Humanity, schools, churches and community events. To learn more, click on Community Involvement above. learn more

Hancock-Wood keeps Member owners informed about legislation that could impact their rights or lead to unstable energy costs. Your voice has been heard at the highest court in the land. In response to petitions by electric co-ops, states and industry, the U.S. Supreme Court granted a stay of the Clean Power Plan. This is an unprecedented act by the Supreme Court.
