First-Quarter Operation Round Up Report

More than $26,000 raised for local students

Thanks to our members, Operation Round Up has gotten off to a great start in 2021. By rounding up their electric bills and making an average monthly donation of just 50 cents, SVEC members contributed a total of $26,420 to give local students the tools they need for a great education.

One of the highlights of the first quarter was the installation of a WeatherSTEM weather station at Suwannee Pineview Elementary. The station will serve as a learning tool for students throughout the school district and will also help coaches monitor weather conditions to keep athletes safe.

Photo Finish

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the 2021 Arc North Florida Lawn Mower Race last month. SVEC was proud to sponsor a pit stop where contestants raced to see how fast they could thread nuts onto a bolt while wearing lineman gloves made of thick rubber. All proceeds from the event help Arc support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
