We are delighted to share a happy story with you. We recently received $5,000 from Rappahannock Electric Cooperative’s (REC) Operation Round Up® (ORU) program. This generous contribution will help to complete the renovation of a timeworn and neglected room at FROG into a new space called the Lily Pad. The Lily Pad will provide a safe, inviting, and comfortable space for foster parent support group meetings, guest speaker sessions, birthday parties and events for foster children, preparation of meals and babysitting space during fundraising events, and more!
Operation Round Up® receives its funding from REC members who volunteer to have their electric bill “rounded-up” to the next highest whole dollar. If REC provides your power, we ask that you consider supporting “The Power of Change.”Members can sign up by visiting the REC website at: http://www.myrec.coop/res/community/operation-round-up.cfm or by calling 800-552- 3904.
The average member contribution is only about $6.00 per year and is tax deductible. This is truly a wonderful program and such an easy way to support our community and those in need. We sincerely thank Rappahannock Electric Cooperative, the Operation Round Up® crew, and the members who “rounded-up.” We are very excited to complete the Lily Pad project and enhance services for children who have been victims of abuse, neglect, or are at-risk.
