Operation Round Up and Co-op Employees Support Special Olympics


Operation Round Up® collects pennies, nickels and dimes


from co-op members to create positive and lasting change in our communities.


More than 4,300 Special Olympics athletes, along with their coaches and


parents and thousands of volunteers, are expected in Stillwater mid-month for the state Summer Games. It’s the biggest, most exciting weekend on the Special Olympics calendar and OEC members make the journey for some local teams possible. “While there is no fee to participate in the Games, the expenses for


uniforms, training, travel, and room and board are quite costly,” said Vivian Gibson, president of the OEC Foundation Board. “For more than a decade, Operation Round Up® donations have provided grants to local teams throughout the co-op’s service area to help defray these costs.” In addition to financial support from ORU, between four and six OEC


employees volunteer at Special Olympics with a host of other electric co-op employees from across the state. In fact, the group historically makes up one of the largest volunteer groups. Everyone who gets involved is transformed by the hope, spirit, and positive energy generated by the athletes. Just as corporate partnerships—both financial and physical—are essential

in helping Special Olympics fulfill its mission, the OEC Foundation board could not achieve its mission—to help individuals and families cope with emergency and unmet needs and aid community and emergency service providers in their efforts to improve the quality of life for all—if it wasn’t for the unwavering support of OEC members who voluntarily support ORU by rounding-up their electric bills each month. Te small change each member contributes has changed the lives of thousands of individuals in our local communities—and it happens in thousands of co-op communities across the nation. Te financial assistance ORU distributes helps to alleviate financial crises, eliminate worry, and assist those who are struggling gain some sense of control in their lives. Whether it’s a grant to Special Olympics, another service organization,


or a family unit, ORU is changing lives and giving folks a chance to succeed. Together, we’re building stronger communities in which we all can thrive.
