—Empowering Texans on Giving Tuesday, Reliant Gives Program Returns
to Support Child-Focused Nonprofits—
HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#GivingTuesday–As the holidays rapidly approach, Reliant is celebrating Giving Tuesday
by kicking off the third round of Reliant Gives, the company’s
crowdsourced charitable-giving program.
Three nonprofits have been chosen by Reliant employees for a chance to
receive a $100,000 donation. Now Reliant is putting the power of
directing its charitable giving in the hands of the public to decide who
receives the top prize.
The three finalists are:
Changing Young Children’s Lives through Education in Houston
rewards students with new bicycles for achieving better academic
performance in the classroom.
Foundation in Houston provides scholarships for college-bound
pediatric cancer patients and childhood cancer survivors.
Warren Center in Dallas provides resources and support to families
and young children who struggle with developmental delay or disability.
Voting starts on Giving Tuesday, November 29, 2016, at 9 a.m. CST, and
runs through December 9, 2016, at 11:59 p.m. CST. The public can cast
their vote for one of the three nonprofits an unlimited number of times
by visiting www.Reliant.com/vote.
The nonprofit with the most votes at the end of the voting period will
receive $100,000 and the other two nonprofits will receive $10,000 and
$5,000, respectively, based on the number of votes they receive.
“This round of Reliant Gives is especially meaningful since each
nonprofit focuses on helping children and their families,” said
Elizabeth Killinger, president of Reliant and NRG Retail. “During the
holiday season, we’re all looking for ways to get involved in our
community and support one another, and Reliant wants to help you do just
that. We encourage everyone to vote often to show support and help make
the holidays a little brighter for someone in need!”
