Operation Round-Up Grants

Grants for the Needy

Life can be hard, sometimes. Here at SLEMCO, we get that. So do our members. SLEMCO’s Operation Round-Up Grant Program was developed to help those less fortunate when tough times come calling.

Thousands of SLEMCO members generously volunteer to have their monthly electric bills rounded up to the nearest dollar to help those in need throughout the community. Funds raised are used to provide grants for a variety of needs including but not limited to:

This program is not used to pay for utility bills or home repairs, unless they are for handicapped modifications.
