The funds for this donation were collected through Iowa Lakes Electric Cooperative's voluntary member-owner giving program, Operation Round Up. This program enables Iowa Lakes Electric Coooperative member-owners to "round up" their electric bills each month to the nearest dollar. The spare change is accumulated and distributed to organizations in need through an application process.

Iowa Lakes Electric Cooperative is dedicated to leadership and growth by providing reliable, competitively priced energy while offering valuable service to benefit their member-owners and the communities they serve.
