The Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® make strides every day to help improve the lives of children across the nation. As a proud partner of this organization, we committed to a donation of $5 million that helped the Texas Children's Hospital expand the Texas Children's Heart Center. Our employees have volunteered over 1,500 hours to the Network, bringing activities and entertainment to help make patients' stays more enjoyable.
Direct Energy's Neighbor-to-Neighbor Bill Assistance Program helps Texans in need pay their electricity bills. Through a local community action agency, those who qualify for the Neighbor-to-Neighbor program may receive up to $700 in assistance during a calendar year. Customers can make donations to the Neighbor-to-Neighbor program every month when they pay their electricity bills.
With the support of our customers, we were able to help make an impact in our communities in 2019.
