Free art classes for middle and high school students have been made possible by a grant from Operation RoundUp.   Operation RoundUp is an innovative community service fundraising program created by Sangre de Cristo Electric Association by consumers who volunteer to round their monthly bill up to the nearest dollar. Funds from those who round up their bill are pooled for charitable contributions through the ORU program. It is a way for consumers to help fund worthwhile community projects by dispersing funds to organizations and individuals for food, clothing, health needs, and education.
