Did you know that adding a few cents to your energy bill improves lives and communities?
In August, Tipmont distributed nearly $17,000 in grants from its Operation Round Up and EnviroWatts programs. They funded initiatives to enhance seniors’ quality of life, bring comfort to teenagers and their caregivers, keep local watersheds clean, and pave the way for fulfilling energy careers in Indiana.

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented challenges everywhere and our youth are certainly no exception. The cancellation of 2021's Youth Tour and Touchstone Energy Camp are but two of many missed opportunities. However, many other opportunities are still available. Here are a few you may want to share with the young people you know.
The EnviroWatts trust board approved two grants to local charities from their first quarter grant cycle.
Food Finders Food Bank solar lighting
Food Finders Food Bank received $6,481.97 for two solar parking lot lights at the new Greenbush Street pantry parking lot in Lafayette. Solar lights will help reduce the food bank’s energy bills while providing a safer and more accessible environment to people utilizing the pantry and education classes.
“The money we save on electricity can be utilized in our hunger relief programs and purchasing of food so that individuals and families who face hunger will have greater access to the nutritional food they need,” said Amanda Estes, grants coordinator for Food Finders Food Bank.
The lights are part of a new parking lot at the Food Resource and Education Center (FREC) located at 1204 N Greenbush Street in Lafayette. An additional grant from North Central Health Services will cover the installation of the solar lights.
The Food Resource and Education Center helps individuals learn how to prepare the food that is gown in Food Finders’ garden and distributed in our pantry. More information is available at food-finders.org.
Lafayette Urban Ministry (LUM) is officially solar powered thanks in part to a $10,000 EnviroWatts grant. On Jan. 14, Lafayette Urban Ministry held a “Flip the Switch” ceremony celebrating the completion of its solar power project.
Recent Operation Round Up Grants to the Lafayette Family YMCA Preschool and Central Catholic High School Athletic Association are making a difference in our communities.
Seizing inspiration for innovative ideas is tough enough for upstart entrepreneurs. Throw in the isolation of working from home, jockeying for coffeehouse plug-ins, and talking shop over hissing espresso machines, and it’s no wonder lightbulbs take time to flicker on.
