At its December meeting, the Northern Plains Electric Operation Round Up board of directors approved grants totaling $9,300 to help support worthy causes.

These charitable grants are made possible through the generosity of Northern Plains Electric Cooperative members who voluntarily elect to have their electric bills rounded up to the next dollar. The donated amount averages about 50 cents a month for each participating member, and raises approximately $37,000 each year.

Since the program’s beginning in October 1998, grants totaling $824,362 have been awarded to 1147 local charitable causes.

Grants approved in December to recipients in the Jamestown include:


  • Pettibone Fire Protection District, for turnout gear

  • Carrington City Library, play activity equipment
  • Kvernes Lutheran Church, Carrington, digital hymnals
  • Marketplace of Ideas/Kids, Education Days
  • Keith Rost, Cathay, medical expenses
  • Eddy, Carrington Daily Bread, Griggs, Kidder, Stutsman, Wells food banks
