The sixth disbursement of "Operation Roundup" funds totaling $63,551 was awarded to 33 recipients from seven counties comprising the Southeastern Indiana REMC's service territory at a special awards ceremony.

The nine-member Operation Roundup Board of Trustees determining grants includes Tina Ellis representing Jennings County SE REMC customers.

Trustees determined the 33 grant applications met all the requirements as set forth by the utility.

The grant money is made possible through the generosity of the REMC membership by "rounding up" their monthly electric bill to the nearest dollar amount. The average donation per year per custoemr is $6. The monthly donation per participant is never more than 99 cents.

Awarded grants in Jennings were the following organizations:

Muscatatuck Christian Ranch, which was awarded $2500 for purchasing a commercial stove for its kitchen;

Campbell Township fire Department for $2500 to purchase laundry equipment (washer, dryer, etc;)

Senior Resources of Jennings County was given $2500 to help underwrite the cost of food items and staff for meals served to the elderly; and

FLASH at St. Vincent Jennings Hospital was awarded $2500 for the free meals and food boxes to families and children.

In Ripley County, just across the county line, the Holton Otter Creek Fire Department was given $2500 to buy tables, chairs and a cart.

The next opportunity to receive an Operation Roundup grant is scheduled for July 2020. Applications will be accepted in the month of
June 2020.
