Operation Round Up
You and Your Co-Op, Doing Great Things Together
What is Operation Round Up and how does it work?
Operation Round Up collects voluntary donations from Coast Electric members to benefit organizations in the cooperative’s service area – Hancock, Harrison and Pearl River counties. The monthly bills of participating Coast Electric members will automatically be rounded up each month to the nearest dollar and the amount collected will be donated to local organizations. For example, if your bill is $145.50, it will be rounded up to $146.00 and 50 cents will be deposited in the Coast Electric Community Trust. The average contribution per member will be approximately 50 cents per month, less than two cents a day. With at least 85 percent of Coast Electric’s members participating, we can put an average of $418,000 back into the communities where we live, work and play each year.
