In the final 2020 Operation RoundUp® quarter, seven area non-profits received funding. A total of $9,750 was distributed this quarter. That brings Operation Round Up’s contribution total for the year up to $48,403.94.

Two local entities received $2,500 each. West Central Music Boosters will update or replace the band
program’s broken instruments with its grant. “Music stays with students for the remainder of their lives,”
noted Operation Round Up board members.

Carroll County Council on Aging’s $2,500 grant will be used to purchase a new vehicle to transport
seniors and disabled Carroll County residents.

The Carroll County Community Center received $2,000 to purchase a complete security camera system.

system will also protect the facility’s equipment.

Two $1,000 grants were awarded. The First Presbyterian Church of Monticello’s Mission Team will buy
gift cards with its funds so needy families can purchase shoes for their children.

Brookston’s Frontier Rotary Club will use its $1,000 grant to refurbish Waugh Park in Brookston. The grant will be used for new benches, a brick walkway and table. The Rotarians will provide labor as needed.

West Central High School received $500 to update the outdated and non-functional softball sound
system. Delphi Community High School received $250 to purchase books for students.

Through Operation Round Up, Carroll White REMC members can “round up” their energy bills and donatethat spare change to help those in need throughout the communities served by REMC.

With an average donation of only $6 per year and never more than 99 cents a month, members can make a small investment that pays big dividends. To participate in Operation Round Up, please sign up at www.cwremc.coop.
