SVEC in the Community — August 2021

August 2021

Rounding Up for Good

Most of our consumer-members participate in Operation Round Up® (ORU), where Suwannee Valley Electric Cooperative (SVEC) rounds up their bill to the next dollar each month and puts the change toward helping local students. The program has been in place less than 3 years, but last month we awarded the 500th ORU grant.

We also passed the threshold of $250,000 in grants awarded since the beginning of the program. While each consumer-member only contributes an average of 50 cents a month, you can see how quickly each individual’s small donation adds up to help students in our area get a better education. This is just one of the many ways SVEC loves to give back to the community we serve.

Wings Over Suwannee

Have a young aviation enthusiast at home? The fifth annual Wings Over Suwannee fly-in, hosted by the Live Oak Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association, is the perfect event for them! Take them to experience airplane, helicopter, and Huey rides. There will also be static displays of aircraft, fire engines, cars, and motorcycles, making it the perfect photo opportunity. Last but not least, don’t forget to check out the SVEC booth for some extra fun!

Food, crafts, business vendors, and FAASTeam Pilot seminars will also be available. Camping and admission to Suwannee County Airport for the event are free.

When: September 18
Where: Suwannee County Airport, 13302 80th Terrace, Live Oak
