Middle Tennessee Electric's Customers Care has donated $5,174.69 of its Operation Round Up funds to Smyrna Senior Citizens. Volunteer Director Patsy Brown says they're grateful to the members of Middle Tennessee Electric and the only way they are able to serve the seniors is through the donations received.
Smyrna Senior Citizens, Inc. is a non-profit organization offering membership to anyone 55 years old or older. The center has been helping seniors live an active and independent lifestyle since 1971.
In 2014, Customers Care has given more than $804,393 to 120 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. Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation is a member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative providing electricity to more than 200,000 residential and business members in Cannon, Rutherford, Williamson and Wilson counties.
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 $7.3 million to 536 organizations across the region.
