The Broad River Electric Charities Board chose South Carolina flood victims as the beneficiary of $20,000 in Operation Round Up funds. The American Red Cross and the South Carolina Cooperatives Care Foundation each received $10,000 from Broad River Electric members who participate in the Operation Round Up program.
All of the monies will go toward helping victims of last months historic floods in the Midlands and Coastal regions of South Carolina.
"Their is hardly a person in our area that doesn't have a loved one that was impacted by the floods," said Barbara Whitney, Chair of the Charities Board. "When a historic tragedy like that happens, you want to help in any way you can."
Tax-deductible donations to aid South Carolina flood victims can be sent to:
S.C. Cooperatives Care Foundation, Attn: Chris Koon. 808 Knox Abbott Drive. Cayce, SC 29033-3311

Operation Round Up funds accumulate when the monthly balance of participating members' accounts are rounded up to the nearest dollar. That extra change goes to the benevolent fund that assists individuals, organizations, and goodwill missions in and around Broad River’s service area.
