Operation Round Up Celebrates 15 Years of Giving
The Choptank Electric Trust is celebrating its 15th year after starting its tradition of giving in January of 2004. Members who are Operation Round Up participants deserve all the credit for the program's success, by allowing Choptank Electric to round up their electricity bill to the next whole dollar. These pennies in turn go into a trust fund for grants approved by a volunteer grant review board, with representation from each of the nine counties on the Eastern Shore.
Because all administrative and accounting functions for this program are provided by Choptank Electric, every penny collected is used for grants in our local communities. To date, Operation Round Up has given back over $4,000,000 to benefit numerous individuals and organizations in our service territory.
