Operation Round-Up Contributes to Local Organizations

On behalf of Hendricks Power Cooperative and its members, a donation of $3,000 to the Putnam County Community Emergency Response Team, Inc (PCCERT) and a donation of $1,000 to the Bike Friendly Hendricks County (BFHC) were recently made. 
The PCCERT donation will be used to support its new Project Lifesaver initiative. Project lifesaver is a nationwide certification that helps protect and quickly locate individuals with cognitive disorders who are prone to wandering. The funds will provide certification, transmitters, and receivers for the PCCERT team to assist Putnam County and surrounding areas.
BFHC is a local initiative that encourages local businesses to install bike racks throughout the area. BFHC will provide bike racks to interested businesses at cost ($150 per rack). Operation Round-Up funds will be used to provide bike racks to businesses and organizations that may not otherwise be able to afford a bike rack. If you are interested in supporting BFHC or getting a bike rack for your business, contact Michael Aviah at maviah@co.hendricks.in.us; 317-745-9618. 
“Our generous members contribute to Operation Round-Up, making these contributions possible,” said Dana Cochran, Director of Marketing and Member Engagement at Hendricks Power Cooperative. “Both of these projects have the safety and health of our community in mind, and we are proud supporters.”
Operation Round-Up is a voluntary fundraising program that lets members round up their energy bill to the next whole dollar- it is never more than 99 cents per month. The contributions are deposited to funds at the Hendricks and Putnam County Community Foundations. Together, Hendricks Power and the Community Foundation determine the most appropriate uses to benefit the community.
If you are interested in rounding up your bill to benefit your community or are part of a non-profit organization that would like to apply for a donation, visit us online at: www.hendrickspower.com/round-up or give us a call at (317) 745-5473.
