Middle Tennessee Electric’s Customers Care recently donated $10,000 of its Operation Round Up funds to the Habitat for Humanity of Wilson County. 

“Thanks to members of MTEMC, another local family has the opportunity to purchase a home,” Habitat for Humanity director Tory Tredway said.  “The Wilson County Division of Habitat is grateful for the grant of $10,000 from the Customers Care program.”

Habitat for Humanity of Wilson County works to eliminate substandard housing and improve living conditions for its communities. The nonprofit organization provides families who can’t afford to purchase a home through conventional loans the opportunity to do so. All houses are built in coordination with community volunteers who donate their time.

In 2014, Customers Care has given 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.
