Since 1992, White River Valley Electric Cooperative’s Trust Program, Operation Round Up, has collected and distributed more than $5.2 million to students, local organizations and families throughout the five-county service area. You can get involved in your community by donating spare change from your electric bill to Operation Round Up. When you become a WRVEC member, you are automatically enrolled in the program, but you can always opt-out at any time. As a participant, your monthly bill will be “rounded up” to the next highest dollar. For example, if your bill is $110.70, you will pay $111. The additional 30 cents goes directly to the Operation Round Up fund.
The Program’s efforts are governed by the White River Valley Electric Trust Board of Directors. ORU Directors are separate from the WRVEC Board of Directors, and are termed positions representing each of the counties we serve. The current seats are occupied as follows:
Jo Stehle, Secretary
Jerry D. Jenkins
Chip Arnette, , President
Steve Holland, Vice President
