Reliant sponsors Bay Day, an event offering educational family activities related to environmental issues impacting Galveston Bay. Employees volunteer in the Karma Floating Classroom, at energy efficiency booths, at environmental booths and in other activities during the day. Reliant also celebrates the Galveston Bay Foundation’s Marsh Mania event, where citizens participate in hands-on marsh restoration activities.
Each year, Reliant employees take a work day to volunteer at a variety of
locations near our corporate offices and plant sites. We’ve volunteered to help seniors, staff low-income support programs and rehabilitate historic buildings
and nature preserves.
