In September 2019, the Tri-County EMC Foundation Board approved grants for 3 projects, totaling $8,000 in Operation Roundup funds, to benefit organizations or individuals in local communities.
- Camp Kudzu: $1,000 to send a diabetic child to summer camp for insulin dependent children
- Putnam Community Resources: $2,000 to purchase food for a food bank in Putnam County
- Sincerity Lodge 430: $5,000 to be used to help furnish basic needs for a family in Jones County that lost their home to a fire
Operation Roundup is funded by voluntary contributions from Tri-County members to the Tri-County EMC Foundation. Participants have their monthly bill rounded up to the next dollar, with that surplus amount going to fund Operation Roundup. Any charitable or government institution, civic organization or other non-profit group located within Tri-County’s eight county service area are eligible to receive funding. Applications must be for special needs or projects. Applications can be found on our website at tri-countyemc.com/operation-round-up.cms or mailed upon request by calling 478.986.8126. The next deadline is December 1, 2019.
