Operation Round Up

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.

Each milestone has been the result of the generosity from Cuivre River Electric Cooperative members.

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.

Grant gives boost to Nurse's Needs program

In a time of need, school nurses are sometimes the first resource for children.

The children visit a nurse for many reasons other than a medical illness. The student may be hungry from not eating breakfast, or in need of personal care or clothing items. Sometimes the items may not be available and the children have to do without.
The Adopt-A-Family Ministry based in Wentzville is hoping to fill the void.
