Americus--  Thousands of people who pay a little extra on their utility bills will help Sumter Regional Hospital recover from that devastating March tornado.

Through "Operation Roundup", Sumter EMC customers can let their bills be rounded up to the next dollar. Each year the Sumter EMC Foundation donates the proceeds to community projects.

In July, nearly 11,000 of 20,000 customers participated in Operation Roundup. Sumter EMC recently made their single largest donation of $20,000 to Sumter Regional.

Hospital leaders say they're thankful and the money will aid them tremendously with recovery.  

Since April of 2003, about $325,000 has been donated to organizations and projects through Operation Roundup.
