Education is important to the advancement of our communities, and CenterPoint Energy works to promote literacy through partnerships with educators, school districts and nonprofits. Our investment in education is just one of the ways we're working to transfer knowledge to all generations and make people's lives better.
For the third year in a row, CenterPoint Energy will be participating in Read Across America on March 3. We are encouraging our employees and customers to take the oath to read to a child. Last year, we partnered with four local nonprofits and schools, but this year, we have expanded our partnership to 10 nonprofits/schools in our Minnesota service area. CenterPoint Energy employees will be reading to more than 300 children and will be making a donation to each nonprofit/school to purchase books for their libraries.
We invite you to please join us in sharing the love of reading with a child.
