Give a little, help a lot

Since Operation Round Up was launched, nearly $6 million has been awarded to help disadvantaged individuals, families and community organizations.

CREC members voluntarily "round up" their electric bill payments each month to the next highest dollar. The average yearly donation is just $6 per member.
