Since Operation Round-Up®’s inception in late 1996, over $4 million has been donated to community projects and programs in Cass, Crow Wing and Morrison counties. Operation Round Up® is funded by participating members of Crow Wing Power who allow the cooperative to round up their electric bills to the nearest whole dollar, an average of fifty cents a month. The additional change is pooled and distributed quarterly.
The next quarterly meeting is scheduled for July 22. Grant forms can be obtained by calling Crow Wing Power at 829-2827 or 1-800-648-9401 or at www.cwpower.com. The deadline for grant applications is July 10.
