Operation Round Up® is a community service program that provides funding for charitable and benevolent purposes for individuals, families, and organizations in our community. This program allows Paulding Putnam Electric members to make a big impact on many lives for just pennies!
The Operation Round Up Board will be seeking a new board member from Putnam County. The current board member from Putnam County, Mary Beth Weisenburger, has fulfilled her term, and her last meeting will be in July. As such, we are seeking a replacement. Anyone interested should send a letter of interest to Paulding Putnam Electric’s CEO, George Carter, at:
Mail: 401 McDonald Pike, Paulding, Ohio 45879
There are five board members on the Operation Round Up Board, each a member from our service territory. All board members are required to attend four short quarterly meetings per year to decide where grant money should be allocated to make the biggest impact in our communities.
Operations Round Up® works like this: The cooperative will round up electric bills of participating members to the next dollar. For example, if your bill is $41.70, it would be “rounded up” to $42. Your maximum contribution per year could be $11.88, but generally will be less than that, averaging $6 per year. Your contribution is tax deductible and the funds are administered by the PPEC Trust Board, which is made up of members from throughout our service territory. By joining this program, you are continuing the “neighbors helping neighbors” concept that founded the cooperative years ago, as well as taking part in the cooperative principle of Concern for Community.
