Pepin Pierce Pepin Cooperative Services members have reached a major giving milestone.
When Pierce Pepin Cooperative Services (PPCS) launched Operation Round Up® in 1993, everyone was certain it would do a lot of good in their local community. But no one predicted that the commitment of PPCS members to support this charitable giving would eventually translate into over half a million dollars in support for local non-profit organizations.
Over seventy percent of PPCS members participate in Operation Round Up.
To date, PPCS members have donated over $510,000 to community programs like local food shelves, senior citizen programs, veterans’ programs, winter clothing for children, and equipment for law enforcement, fire departments and EMS.
On average, members who round up their monthly energy bill contribute only about $6.00 per year.
The funds collected through Operation Round Up are distributed through Pierce Pepin Cares Foundation, PPCS’ charitable foundation.
