Operation Round-Up Kicks Off 2020

$5,000 in Donations to Local Organizations

Avon, IN - On behalf of Hendricks Power Cooperative and its members, a total of $5,000 was recently donated to local organizations within Hendricks and Putnam counties. Each of these organizations provide invaluable services to our community. Donations were made to St. Malachy and St. Susanna schools, Eel River Township Fire Rescue, the Fire Department of Liberty Township, and the New Providence Food Pantry. 
 
The $2,000 donation to St. Malachy and St. Susanna schools will be used to purchase a variety of athletic equipment including indoor volleyball nets, floor goals, and a variety of tools for relay races. The equipment will be shared between to schools and be used to serve their collective 600+ students. 
A $1,000 donation to Eel River and Liberty Township Fire Departments will be used to enhance fire and rescue efforts. Throughout the last few years, many fire departments have seen a decrease in financial support and volunteers in their communities. These funds will assist in purchasing new hoses, apparel, and various other tools to increase safety and efficiency.
The New Providence Food Pantry in Greencastle received a $1,000 donation to help purchase a backup generator for its 11 freezers on-site. The organization serves between 400-500 individuals a week and has been providing support for the Greencastle community for more than 30 years! The pantry is located at New Providence Baptist Church and is open every Tuesday, from 9 am - 12 pm. 
“Operation Round Up is such a benefit to the community,” said Dana Cochran, Director of Marketing and Member Engagement at Hendricks Power Cooperative. “Our members generously fund this program, and their donations have positively impacted a wide range of local organizations and programs. We encourage all of our members to participate; it is a great way to give back and help make a difference in the community.”

Operation Round-Up is a voluntary fundraising program that lets members round-up their energy bill to the next whole dollar- the difference is then deposited into our Operation Round-Up Fund at the Hendricks County and Putnam Community Foundations. Together, Hendricks Power and the Community Foundations determine the most appropriate uses to benefit the community. Anyone interested in receiving funds for the good of the community can contact us for our guidelines and an application.
