The Utilities District of Western Indiana REMC announced its most recent Community Fund Grants winners.
Six years ago, UDWI REMC launched "Operation Round Up," an innovative program that gives members an avenue to make a difference where they live by combining their spare change for the good of communities.
Participating members' electric bills are rounded up to the next whole dollar amount. For example, if a bill totals $24.81, the amount due is $25.
The donations are put into the UDWI Community Fund, a non-profit corporation created by the REMC to distribute the funds. The organization awards grants quarterly based on selection guidelines.
The grant recipients for the most recent quarter included Walnut Grove Cemetery, BackPack Snack Program, Jasonville United Methodist Church Back Door Food Pantry, Metropolitan School District of Shakamak, Greene County Home Healthcare, Kids Count Preschool, Eastern-Greene Middle School, Lyons Senior Citizen Center, Greene County Friends of Animals, Inc., Open Arms Family and Educational Services, Greene County Clothe-A-Child, and Family Life Center.
