Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative awarded $26,000 in grants to a dozen organizations around the region from their Operation Round Up program.

Co-op members generously donate to round up on their monthly bills for charitable causes like feeding the area’s hungry, expanding access to the arts, clothing for children, and more.

The charities are selected after a grant application process that is reviewed by the Operation Round Up Committee three times a year.

The local June recipients included Page One, Valley Educational Center for Creative Arts, Families Reaching Our Group, Love to NIC, and the Winchester Area Temporary Thermal Shelter.

The final batch of grants will be distributed in the Fall and the grant deadline for applicable organizations will be Tuesday, October 1st.
