Operation Roundup provides winter wear through Coats for Kids


T


hanks to thousands of Kiamichi Electric Cooperative members, children in southeast Oklahoma will be able to play outside, ride the bus, and walk to school without being cold this winter. The reason is


Coats for Kids, a program funded via the Kiamichi Electric Operation Roundup program. Coats for Kids provides warm winter coats to needy kids across the co-op service area.


Todd Minshall, communications specialist for KEC, said over 300 winter coats were delivered to 30 local schools, who distributed them to qualifying students. Recipients range in age from kindergarten to high school, but all are in dire need of warm winter clothing.


Now in its fourth year, Coats for Kids came about when board members of Operation Roundup heard about the need for such a program from local teachers. Since that time, the program


has purchased thousands of winter coats for kids—and warmed a lot of hearts.


Operation Roundup provides  community organizations, charities, schools and individuals. Funds come from co-op members who voluntarily “round up” their electric bill to the next dollar each month. The average annual member contribution is 87 cents. “These pennies have multiplied into a generous wellspring that


helps our communities and local residents,” said Minshall. “Our members should be proud of their accomplishment. ”
