Operation Round Up helps feed 2,894 seniors, homebound


By Brianna Wall a


At its July 31 meeting, the OEC Foundation, Inc. board of directors approved $9,000 for the Meals on Wheels scholarship meal program. T is will assist in feeding 2,894 seniors and homebound clients. “T e help [from Operation Round


Up®] is greatly appreciated and allows Meals on Wheels to continue to serve nutritious meals to the ill, disabled and elderly based on need and not on the ability to pay,” said Lynn Haynes, executive director of Meals on Wheels Norman. Provided at a discounted rate by


the Norman Regional Health System, the program allows clients who are unable to pay for meals—one-third of their clientele—to still receive them. In addition to the nutritional value of the meals, daily visitation also makes a diff erence in the lives of the clients. “Our volunteer drivers are caring


and dedicated and oſt en serve as a life-line to this isolated segment of our society,” Haynes said. “It is imperative this invaluable service remains available to all in need of the services.”


Foundation President Lloyd


Gramling said the board is always happy to assist programs devoted to fulfi lling the needs of a community. “We have been donating to the


Meals on Wheels scholarship meal program for almost as long as the Operation Round Up program has existed,” Gramling said. “We know elderly and disabled citizens count on programs like this to survive. It’s a very reputable program, and we are glad to help out when they need it.” Also at the July 31 meeting, the


board approved $2,500 in support of the Athletes of Grady County. T anks to the grant, athletes will be able to participate in the Special Olympics area and state competitions. T e Regional Food Bank of


Oklahoma received $5,000 for its Food for Kids Backpack program, and Working for Independent Living received $600 for Christmas giſt s for its residents. In addition, several individuals


received grants for eye exams, glasses, dentures and dental work.


These grants are made possible thanks to the generosity of OEC members who elect to ‘round up’ their bills each month. The funds assist individuals and non-profit organizations in need in the OEC service territory.
