To better help the communities we serve and further South Plains Electric Cooperative’s Operation Round Up mission of neighbors helping neighbors, the Operation Round Up Board of Directors created a community grant program to help local non-profit organizations.

Thanks to our generous membership, Operation Round Up was able to give out $24,000 in grants to 19 local non-profit organizations in 2020.

Special Olympics Texas was a recipient of the 2020 Operation Round Up Community Grant. Special Olympics provides a year-round training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

The grant will support the distribution center piece of the Mobility Plan. They purchased storage bins, shelving and other organizational materials to organize the distribution center.
