Arkansas County agency receives donation

Operation Round-Up Trustee James Phillips, right, makes a presentation to Executive Director Jon Hornbeck of Dana’s House in Arkansas County. Dana’s House received $1,000 from First Electric Cooperative’s Operation Round-Up. The agency was among 13 nonprofits to share $14,000 in donations through the program. First Electric members who enroll in the operation volunteer to have their electric bills rounded up to the next even dollar amount each month. That money — more than $757,000 since 1998 — funds nonprofit donations and college scholarships. (Special to The Commercial)
