OPERATION Round Up


OEC Foundation board approves over $9,000 in grants


t Te OEC Foundation, Inc. board


of directors at its Jan. 29 meeting approved $9,129 in grants to local organizations and individuals. Tese donated funds are added to an already impressive amount of grants given since the program began in 1993. Te organizations benefitting


from the first grants of 2015 are Canadian County CASA, Inc., Friends of Mustang Public Library and the Washington Police Department. Each grant will be used by the organizations to further their missions of serving others in their communities. “CASA provides a voice for


children who have been abused or neglected and have been adjudicated through the court system as deprived,” said Krystle Lane, CASA’s executive director. Te board approved a $1,000 grant to CASA and its mission to help children in Canadian County. Te Friends of the Mustang Public


Library received a $3,000 grant for its summer reading program for children and teens. “Te summer reading program


at the Mustang Library will keep children and teens reading through the summer,” said Brett Jones, president. “Children can lose one to two grade levels in their reading skills if they do not read through the


4


summer break from school.” Funds donated to the program will


provide all services and supplies to the children so there is not a hindrance to anyone wanting to participate. A $3,000 grant was also awarded


to the Washington Police Department for new hand-held radios. “Tese radios will give us the


ability to communicate with dispatch and other officers and increase the safety of the officers while they are out of the patrol unit during a traffic stop or an emergency call,” said Ruben Ruiz, chief of police. In addition to the grants given to


the aforementioned organizations, several individuals received assistance with eye glasses and exams, as well as food and clothing for children. Te Operation Round Up®


program is made possible thanks to members who choose to ‘round up’ their electric bills each month to the nearest dollar, with the difference being placed into a separate fund. Individuals, families and nonprofit organizations in OEC’s service area are eligible to apply for grants, and meetings are held every six to eight weeks for a nine-person board of directors to review the applications. Applications received by March 2


will be reviewed at a meeting held on March 12. Visit www.okcoop.org/ORU
