WPMS receives $2K grant

On Sept. 20, the TVEC Charitable Foundation awarded a grant in the amount of $2,000 to the Wills Point Middle School.

“Currently, 13 students at the Wills Point Middle School participate in the backpack program. We send them home with food over the weekends, holidays, as well as extended breaks. We would like to give TVEC a big than you for giving back to our community and to these children who are in need,” WPMS officials said.

The TVEC Charitable Foundation is funded by donations from Operation Round Up. Operation Round Up is a voluntary program that allows TVEC members to round up their monthly electric bills to the next whole dollar amount. The portion that is rounded up goes to the TVEC Charitable Foundation and may be used to award grant requests to local charitable organizations.
