Local Programs Funded By Member-Supported Operation Round-Up

Local Programs Funded By Member-Supported Operation Round-Up

Posted on October 30th, 2023

Operation Round-Up allows First Electric members to help support worthwhile projects in our communities and scholarships for students. In October, Operation Round-Up awarded $36,150 to 25 local organizations.

Participating in Operation Round-Up is easy. Each month, First Electric simply “rounds up” the electric bill of participating members to the next highest dollar. For example, a member’s monthly bill of $52.73 would be rounded up to $53, with the additional 27 cents going to the Operation Round-Up Trust fund.

To some, rounding up on an electric bill once a month is just small change; to others, it is changing lives in such impactful ways. Bryant Boys and Girls Club was awarded $2,000 to support their after-school program by purchasing more art supplies. Community Outreach Coordinator Jordan Stramiello says she wants the art program to go beyond markers and construction paper. She wants each child to dig deep into his or her creativity.

Recently, one project was to create rubber band bracelets. Each child got to pick out the color combination and learn how to create a piece of jewelry. Once completed, each child gave a bracelet to someone as a “friendship bracelet,” informing the friend why he or she values them. Through Stramiello’s experience at the Club, she says she has noticed that not all children have a passion for sports and that some have been able to find an outlet with art that can allow them to grow and expand.

Members can sign up through our website at, mobile app, or by calling us at 800-489-7405.
