Recently, Pat Bartsch and Allen Stea, Operation Trust Board Members for Adams-Columbia Electric Cooperative, presented a most generous gift of $2,320 to the local American Red Cross Disaster Action Team, represented by John and Vicki Jenks, of Wild Rose. Earlier this spring, the local Red Cross chapter submitted an application to ACEC’s Operation Round-up.

Operation Round-Up is a wonderful program where individuals and companies voluntarily “round up” their monthly electric bill by a few cents or dollars.  The excess funds are then utilized helping support local citizens and charities–in this instance—the American Red Cross.

The local American Red Cross serving citizens in Green Lake, Marquette, Waupaca and Waushara counties, will utilize the funds for infant, child, and adult hygiene comfort kits, reflective vests for nighttime fire responses, first aid needs, coolers, and damage assessment kits. Additionally, the gift will be used to help families displaced by such disasters as residential fires—the most common local disaster.

  “Down the street, across the country, around the world—the Red Cross is there”, because of the generosity of American citizens like Adams-Columbia Electric Cooperative.
