Medina EC’s Operation Round Up makes donations

Hondo, Texas – Medina Electric Cooperative’s Operation Round Up program is accepting applications for the holiday season. There are two opportunities for financial assistance:
General Donations: Every quarter, the ORU committee reviews applications from individuals in our communities who need financial help. Donations have gone to help families battling cancer, those who have lost their homes to fire, children needing therapy and many more worthwhile causes.
Operation Grocery Give: For the holiday season, ORU is giving 20 $150 H-E-B gift cards to help provide families with a nice holiday meal.
Applications for both opportunities are due November 6 and will be awarded in early December. Individuals may apply for assistance for themselves or may submit an application on behalf of someone they know needs help, and they can apply and be considered for both opportunities. Applicants do not need to be members of Medina EC but must reside in one of the 17 counties served by the cooperative. Along with the application, a letter should be included explaining why the donation is needed. For more information and to apply online, visit
Operation Round Up is funded by the generosity of Medina EC members who opt to have their electric bills rounded up to the next whole dollar, by employees who donate through payroll deduction and by donations from individuals or organizations straight to ORU.
