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 award $24,000 in grants to 19 local non-profit organizations.
Vessels of Joy for Christ was a 2020-2021 Operation Round Up Community Grant recipient. This non-profit's main purpose is to be a vessel of joy during the holiday season. With the grant, they were able to create long-lasting memories by providing a Christmas Eve dinner to the Grace Campus and pass out blankets, Bibles and toiletries to those in need.
“Over a six-week time period, we will serve and be Vessels of Joy for Christ to a variety of kids, families, groups and community members,” Candace Wilkins said. “Through VOJFC, we will plant seeds to these different groups so they can experience a sign of HOPE.”
