A dozen nonprofit organizations have been awarded grants from the Vermont Electric Cooperative’s community fund.

Grants supported literacy, public safety and addiction treatment, among other needs.

The money comes from co-op members who round up their electric bills and from their donations.

Among local organizations the fund supported this quarter:

• Cambridge Area Rotary to help market an event to support access to skiing and snowboarding for local students.

• Lamoille Community House in Hyde Park.

• The Children’s Literacy Foundation in Waterbury.

• Catamount Film and Arts.

• Teen Challenge Vermont.

• Northern Vermont University to help support the 2020 Veterans Summit.
