Operation Pocket Change

Operation Pocket Change is a voluntary round-up program that assists worthy local organizations as well as fellow members who’ve fallen on hard times. Participating co-op members volunteer to round up their monthly electric bills to the next whole dollar amount. Let’s say your bill is $85.73. It would be rounded up to $86, with twenty-seven cents going to Operation Pocket Change. The extra “pocket” change then flows into a special fund managed by a board of volunteer members who have a strong concern for their community and possess a desire to see that help is provided fairly throughout the co-op’s service area. Call your local office or email to sign up.
