Power It Forward
Our commitment to community is as strong as our Texas roots. That’s why we’re proud to team up with others who share our passion, like Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. Together, we’re building a better future for our community in plenty of empowering ways. Whether you’re inspiring leaders of tomorrow or helping those in need today, Reliant invites you to Power It Forward in your community. Let’s make a difference together.
Scholarships for Champions
We recently joined Deshaun Watson to surprise eight Houston-area high school students with $5,000 scholarship checks through the Scholarships for Champions program. Created in partnership between Reliant and the Houston Texans, Scholarships for Champions recognizes leadership in athletics, academics and community involvement. Since 2005, the program has awarded $480,000 to 96 students from the Greater Houston area. As part of the day’s surprise, student recipients also joined local media personalities in the Reliant Charity Flag Football Game, which benefits deserving nonprofits.
Habitat for Humanity
This season, Reliant and the Houston community teamed up to hammer, saw and accrue more than 1,000 volunteer hours building a home with Houston Habitat for Humanity. We're honored to provide free electricity from Reliant for the first year of ownership to all 25 homes completed this build season. Plus, leveraging our relationship as Google's premier energy partner in Texas, each home will also be outfitted with a suite of Nest smart home products.
You can help, too, by donating to Houston Habitat for Humanity today.
Small gestures and acts of kindness can have a big impact on someone’s life. Use #PowerItForward and share with us how you’re spreading positive energy in your community.
