LAFS would like to thank MVEC and it's Operation Round Up program. Since 2013 they have donated $4,650.00 to the Lonsdale Food Shelf. Minnesota Valley Electric Cooperative your donations for food are greatly appreciated.
MVEC and the LAFS working together to serve our community.
Operation Round Up (ORU) is one way MVEC members work together to make a difference. By rounding up your monthly electric bill to the nearest whole dollar, that extra change of 1 cent to 99 cents adds up and is used to fund request by local charitable organizations.
Here's how it works. If your bill is $75.22, it is rounded up to $76.00 and the extra 78 cents goes to the ORU Fund. Multiply all that extra change by the thousands of generous MVEC members who participate and it makes a BIG difference in our local communities.
This unique program has provided funds for purchasing various items for local fire departments, women's shelters, groups serving youth, and food shelves such as LAFS!
Please consider rounding up your MVEC bill!
