United Cooperative Services sets up customer plan for tornado victims

United Cooperative Services, which had 1,037 meters out of power immediately after the tornado strike Wednesday evening in Hood County, made this announcement through Communications Manager Mauri Montgomery: “Our board of directors … approved a … measure to aid co-op members who have been displaced following the disaster. The funds will be administered through Operation RoundUp (an annual program made possible through the voluntary contributions of members who allow their montly electric bills to be rounded up to the next even dollar amount. The difference between the amount owed and the next even dollar amount is put into the program to aid members every day, all year long). We intend to distribute flyers at the Hood County Emergency Management meeting at the Granbury Church of Christ (9 a.m.-6 p.m. today, May 18, at 1905 W. Pearl St.).
