Since Operation Round-Up’s inception in late 1996, more than $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 50 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 218-829-2827 or 1-800-648-9401 or at www.cwpower.com . The deadline for grant applications is July 10.
