Through our outreach efforts, we lend support to educational, civic, social and environmental initiatives that enhance the quality of life for our customers and our communities. In the true spirit of diversity, we work with groups from many different backgrounds, tailoring our relationship and our assistance to meet their needs whenever possible.
Community Relations at CenterPoint Energy has three main objectives:
Building relationships with the communities we serve and reaching out to our customers as a caring neighbor.
Showing our commitment through corporate sponsorship of community events and by financial contributions to charities, civic organizations, educational programs and economic development initiatives.
Actively promoting volunteer service among our employees and demonstrating as a team that we make a difference.
Each year, CenterPoint Energy employees contribute about 100,000 volunteer service hours. Community support is integral to who and what we are as a company, and we wouldn't have it any other way.
