Roundup for Safety grant to benefit senior citizens in Libby

A $3,000 Roundup for Safety (RFS) grant will fund protective barriers for the front of the Senior Center in Libby. Last year, a vehicle ran through the outside wall/window of the facility and there was significant damage. Applicant Dedi Coy says the Center is used by the greater community in Libby to gather for any number of reasons.

“At the time of the accident, several people were within range of the vehicle when it accidentally entered through an exterior wall, but we escaped any injuries this time. The barriers will help seniors who are playing cards, eating dinner or sitting by the fire to feel safe.”

Roundup for Safety is a voluntary program for Flathead Electric Cooperative members who allow their electric bills to be rounded up to the next dollar, with the extra money going into a fund for community nonprofit safety projects. The Co-op is grateful to all who participate in enhancing the safety of our community.
