Reliant Donates $100,000 to DFW Nonprofits Providing Critical COVID-19 Aid

Continuing support for Texas communities impacted by COVID-19, Reliant announced today a donation of $100,000 to be shared by four local DFW organizations that are providing critical resources to communities in the metroplex.

As part of Reliant's continued COVID-19 support across the state of Texas and parent company, NRG Energy, Inc.'s $2 million donation to pandemic relief efforts, the contribution will help provide food, mortgage and rent assistance, senior services, medical and dental services and job resources.

"Reliant is dedicated to helping our fellow Texans during this uncertain time and making sure our communities have access to the basic necessities they critically need," said Elizabeth Killinger, president, Reliant. "We are incredibly moved by the work local nonprofits are doing to help care for our neighbors, and we are honored to help light the way by supporting these crucial services."

The $100,000 donation will be split equally among the following organizations, which are critical resource centers for Texas communities:

Facing increased demand since the onset of the pandemic, these organizations provide essential assistance to their communities and have not yet received funding from the region's relief funds.

Reliant's donation comes on the heels of the company's recent $100,000 contribution to Baylor Scott & White Health, which will support its MyBSWHealth mobile app that is aiding in the fight against COVID-19. Last month, Reliant also donated $25,000 to the MedStar Mobile Healthcare Foundation in support of DFW-area first responders.

In addition to statewide nonprofit support, Reliant is working with customers across Texas to ensure they have the power they need, regardless of hardships endured from this crisis, with payment plans and additional relief. Visit reliant.com/care for more information.
