Operation Round Up® Highlights

The pennies you contribute each month to Operation Round-Up, when combined with the pennies of thousands of other members, have resulted in changed lives. Founded in 1993, Operation Round-Up offers Coweta-Fayette EMC members the opportunity to literally “round up” their bill to the next highest dollar. The difference contributes to a fund which is awarded to individuals and organizations in need. Read about our recent Operation Round-Up grant recipients below!
