ORE THAN a dozen OEC Foundation grants, collectively totaling $22,563.50, are equipping assistance organizations to respond to growing needs in their communities and helping area families meet their everyday needs. T e money, which comes from OEC members


who participate in the Operation Round Up® program, was approved during a Foundation board meeting in March. T ree thousand dollars was awarded to the volunteer fi re department in


Lexington to purchase heavy lift airbags. Emergency responders will use the airbags during rescue operations to lift vehicles, heavy machinery, and debris that has fallen upon or trapped victims. Airbags require minimal clearance for operation and can be used in small spaces where other lifting equipment may not easily fi t. According to Jansen Idlett, fi re chief, there have been at least two separate


occasions during the last year where someone was pinned under a tractor or piece of equipment. “In both instances, we had to wait for help from another agency, which delayed the victims from receiving medical care,” Idlett said. T e Lexington-Purcell Special Olympics team also received a


grant—$1,500 to help make it possible for the team to take part in the Summer Games later this month. T e money will pay for uniforms, training, and travel. Twelve additional grants were awarded to individuals and families. T e


amount given to the recipients ranges between $250 and $5,000. Eye exams and glasses, groceries, and clothing, as well as home repairs for victims of last year’s tornadoes, are among the needs these grants will address. T e OEC Foundation board, which administers the donations that come


in through Operation Round Up and makes funding decisions, meets every four to six weeks to consider new requests. Grants awarded at the May 1 meeting will appear in the June issue of the OEC News. Call 217-6710 to request an application or for information about the Operation Round Up program.
