Operation Round Up Contributes to Animal Center

Misty Eyes Donation

On behalf of Hendricks Power Cooperative and its members, a $1,500 donation was made to Misty Eyes Animal Center of Avon. Misty Eyes is a volunteer-based organization that aims to end euthanasia and promotes responsible pet ownership. 
The donation will allow the center to provide necessary medical care and spay/neuter services to reduce the pet population. 
The donation was requested by Diana and Larry Kowalski, who are Misty Eyes volunteers.  The Kowalskis have worked alongside Misty Eyes for more than ten years, since the organization's founding.  Throughout the last few months, the couple has been able to raise more than $2,400 for the organization from local organizations, family, and friends. 
"These funds will help us catch up on medical costs for our dogs and cats. We are glad to help animals in need of love and care to help them find their forever home." Diana Kowalski says, "We are proud to see so much support from our community in helping these animals. These funds give these rescues a voice and in many cases, save their lives."
Operation Round-Up is a voluntary fundraising program that lets members round-up their energy bill to the next whole dollar. Funds collected are donated to local nonprofits to benefit our community.
