In Houston, CNP was one of the major sponsors for the 2009 Fifth Ward Christmas Party. More than 60 CNP volunteers and their family members participated in this year’s Christmas in the Nickel. This annual event is sponsored by the Phyllis Wheatley High School Foundation and State Representative Harold Dutton. CNP has participated in the event as a major supporter for a number of years. Volunteers treated more than 800 children to gifts such as bikes, computers and other electronics. Each child received one gift from Santa, who was played by Kwame Perry, retail transaction business analyst in Electric Operations.
