Energy Future Holdings Contributes More Than $3 Million to United Way, TXU Energy Aid
DALLAS --(Business Wire)--
In 2013, the people of Energy Future Holdings and its portfolio of
companies, Luminant, Oncor and TXU Energy, showed their spirit for
giving back in a big way, contributing $3.1 million to the United Way
and TXU Energy Aid.
Employee and corporate campaign contributions will help Texas
communities shine brighter, benefiting United Way's health, education
and income initiatives, and keeping the lights on for families in crisis
through TXU Energy Aid.
"I'm thrilled that we surpassed our campaign goal this year," said
Andrea Pelosi, EFH's United Way and TXU Energy Aid campaign chairwoman.
"Our employees go above and beyond in their giving each year and display
a strong commitment to our communities. Together, we're providing
assistance to more than 80 social service agencies and 22 United Way
chapters across Texas."
Strengthening EFH's legacy of volunteerism, employees also contributed
more than 1,800 volunteer hours during the campaign through activities
at sites across the company.
Thanks to employees' generosity and participation, United Way of
Metropolitan Dallas has honored EFH with a Best Practices Award for
Young Professioal Engagement and an Outstanding Leadership Campaign
Pacesetter Award. Additionally, EFH is one of six Pacesetter companies
in North Texas with a million dollar or more campaign. Pacesetter awards
recognize companies that set the tone for the campaign and inspire
others to support United Way initiatives.
"We are enormously grateful for Energy Future Holdings' track record of
generosity," said Jennifer Sampson, president and CEO of United Way of
Metropolitan Dallas. "Since 2000, EFH has annually invested over $1
million locally in education, income and health - the building blocks
for strong families and thriving communities. This year's campaign
results - over $3 million - are nothing short of outstanding and a
testament to the company's commitment to making North Texas the very
best place to live, work and raise families."
EFH and its employees have contributed more than $25 million to some 22
United Way organizations since 2000. Additionally, for more than 30
years, TXU Energy Aid has served as an integral resource for social
service agencies that assist families in need, helping more than 455,000
customers across Texas pay their electricity bills.
