Members of the Cooperative may choose to have their bills rounded up to the nearest dollar and employees of the Cooperative are given the opportunity to have their paychecks rounded down to contribute to this fund. This extra change is accumulated in the Operation Round Up® Trust Fund and is awarded as grants to non-profit and charitable organizations. High school scholarships are also awarded to qualifying area students.
All members of Meeker Cooperative are eligible to participate in Operation Round Up. Please call Meeker Co-op at 320-693-3231 if you do not currently participate and would be willing to contribute your extra change each month to local non-profit organizations in your community.
