EMERY - Central Electric Cooperative will award an Emery day care provider with $2,200 on Wednesday to help construct a new playground.

Central Electric will give the Little Learner's Daycare and Preschool $2,200 generated through the Operation RoundUp program intended to help the daycare implement rubber safety matting under equipment, a shaded play area, sandbox and moving the jungle gym. Little Learner's serves approximately 40 children.

Operation RoundUp is a voluntary program in which members' electric bills are rounded up to the nearest dollar. The extra money flows into a charitable fund to make a direct impact in the communities Central Electric serves.

Through the same program, Central Electric will award the Campbell Straw Bale Museum in Carthage with $3,000 on Wednesday to replace its roof. The roof had previously been leaking and ruined the insulation.
