RETREET Receives $10,000 Donation from ‘Reliant Gives’ Program
—Contribution Coincided with NRG Global Giving Day—
The Reliant Gives program awarded a $10,000 donation to Dallas-based nonprofit RETREET, an organization that volunteers to replant communities in the wake of disaster, thereby redefining the concept of disaster relief. The employee-nominated, community-chosen contribution marks the culmination of the new charitable-giving program from Reliant that puts the power of nonprofit advocacy in the hands of the public, letting people vote for the Texas charity they want to receive donations. The Reliant Gives program coincided with Reliant and NRG’s Global Giving Day, when hundreds of employees fan out across communities in Texas and 15 other states to provide volunteer services to nonprofit organizations.
