Christmas Came Early for 17 Nonprofits this Year

Christmas Came Early for 17 Nonprofits this Year

Posted on December 29th, 2022

(Pictured) Altrusa International Foundation in Hot Springs Village, Inc. awards scholarships of $500 to seniors at four area high schools who achieve a 4.0 GPA from freshman through senior year. Each year, the scholarships are awarded at a luncheon at the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion. Altrusa estimates that 18 students will qualify this school year. Altrusa Foundation was awarded $1,000 for this purpose by the Operation Round-Up board of trustees. This photo of last year’s recipients was provided by Altrusa International Foundation in Hot Springs Village, Inc.

Thanks to members who participate in Operation Round-Up, $24,500 was donated to 17 local organizations in December.

These members volunteer to have their bill rounded up to the next even dollar amount each month. That money — an average of $6 a year — is used for donations to local organizations and for college scholarships. To date, Operation Round-Up has donated more than $1.47 million.

The Operation Round-Up Trust fund is overseen by a nine-member board of community members, who are selected to serve by First Electric’s board of di-rectors. The trustees meet quarterly to review donation applications and select the recipients.
