Walton EMC Pumps $100,000 Into Local Charities
By Staff Reports
(MONROE, Ga February 21, 2014) The latest grants from Walton Electric Membership Corporation's (EMC) Operation Round Up are being put to good use all over the cooperative's 10-county Northeast Georgia service area. To be exact, $104,187.17 went to 13 worthy organizations and 13 needy families in the latest round of disbursements.
The money is collected a few cents at a time when customer-owners allow their monthly bill to be rounded up to the next dollar. The resulting change goes into a fund administered by a volunteer board. None of this money can be used to pay electric bills. Here are the latest good works being funded by generous Walton EMC customer-owners:
