Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation’s Customers Care donated recently $10,000 of its Operation Round Up funds to Mid-Cumberland Meals on Wheels.
“We are so blessed by the community support expressed through this donation,” said Sharon McDaniel, Mid-Cumberland Meals on Wheels community outreach coordinator. “In Tennessee, nearly one of five seniors go hungry. These funds will help provide vital services to the elderly of the MTEMC service area.”
Mid-Cumberland Meals-on-Wheels provides healthy home-delivered meals to individuals 60 and over, helping seniors maintain dignity and good health and continue to live in their homes as long as possible.
In 2013, Customers Care gave more than $767,500 to 121 organizations across MTEMC’s four-county service area. The receiving organizations use the funds to assist MTEMC members and their families during their times of need.
These grants are administered through the Customers Care board, which tracks incoming contributions from Operation Round Up, an initiative that rounds up a member’s bill to the next highest dollar. Since 2003, Operation Round Up has distributed more than $6.5 million to 522 organizations across the region.
