Giving back to the places we call home

To support first responders and the most vulnerable in Texas, Reliant is committing over $450,000 to local community relief funds and initiatives to protect frontline workers and those adversely impacted by COVID-19. The donations are part of our community program, Reliant Gives, to provide support across the state of Texas and our parent company, NRG Energy, Inc.’s $2 million donation to pandemic relief efforts.

The donations will support the following initiatives:

  • The City of Houston’s new Houston Frontline Fund, which will directly benefit the city’s first responders and essential personnel, helping provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the Police and Fire Department, Health Department, Houston Parks and Recreation Department and other essential function personnel covering the COVID-19 testing sites.
  • The Greater Houston COVID-19 Recovery Fund, a collaborative effort between the United Way of Greater Houston and Greater Houston Community Foundation to help the region’s most vulnerable neighbors meet their basic needs during the coronavirus pandemic.
  • The MedStar Mobile Healthcare Foundation to equip North Texas area first responders with personal protective equipment that will keep first responders safe as they deliver life-saving care. The donation will also allow the MedStar Foundation to establish a grant program to help EMS workers offset additional costs they may be incurring for things like childcare or alternative living arrangements.
  • Fort Bend Forward, a nonprofit managed by the Fort Bend Chamber to support production of much needed personal protective equipment for first responders in Fort Bend County in collaboration with H-Force. H-Force members are utilizing their resources, technologies and expertise to support different projects, including the use of 3-D printers to make components for face shields for medical professionals and hand-sewn face masks for first responders and other essential personnel in need of protection.
  • The Texas COVID Relief Fund administered by OneStar Foundation will provide critical funding and resources to nonprofit and government organizations across the state that are serving local communities.

Grassroots giving

At Reliant, our commitment to community is as strong as our Texas roots. And while social distancing has impacted some of the ways we are engaging these days, our community program, Reliant Gives, is still energizing the organizations, causes and people who are making a difference.

Here are some of the Texas-based organizations we are helping in this time of need.

Comp-u-Dopt logo

Comp-U-Dopt

With more schools relying on distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students without a computer at home are severely disadvantaged. Comp-U-Dopt has established a computer drive-thru, which observes Coronavirus isolation precautions, but allows families to have a computer placed in their cars to take home. Reliant has been a partner in this effort since 2015.

 
Friends For Life logo

Friends For Life

Founded in 2002, Friends For Life introduced the no-kill shelter model to Houston – saving animals regardless of their breed, age or condition. We are proud to sponsor the Friends For Life mobile adoption vehicle, which is used in tandem with two of the organization’s innovative drive-thru initiatives: a free drive-thru pet clinic and drive-thru food bank.
