Pick Your Charity for Thanksgiving

By Julianne, November 1, 2011, Charity & Community, News

As the holiday season rolls around, it’s the time of the year where you think about food, family, and giving thanks. Unfortunately, there are some people who are not as fortunate. We always like to do what we can by donating to different charities and this Thanksgiving season, we’re letting our friends vote on which charity we will donate to. We have chosen 4 different charities in the Texas area for fans to vote to receive our donation. We have also included a 5th option for customers who have a favorite charity that they would like to choose to receive a donation.

Texas Food Bank Network
The Texas Food Bank Network unites 19 food banks across the state with a common mission to end hunger in Texas. The Texas Food Bank Network services hunger relief agencies in all 254 Texas counties. In 2010, TFBN was able to distribute over 298 million pounds of food or approximately 232,975,217 meals.

Ronald McDonald House Charities
The Ronald McDonald House Charities is to create, find and support programs that improve the health and well being of children. Through their 36 years of experience, they have built strong relationships with local communities and people in the field to continually establish chapters across the globe to help families during their most difficult or challenging times.

Star of Hope
The Star of Hope is a community dedicated to meeting the needs of homeless men, women and their children. They provide the community structured programs that focus on spritual growth, education, employment, life-management and recovery from substance abuse.  At any given day, the Star of Hope helps approximately one thousand homeless men, women and children foster positive life changes.

Noah’s Kitchen
Noah’s Kitchen is a grass roots movement started in Houston that provides the less fortunate with nourishment, nutritional education and other assistance as needed. Its volunteers provide the less fortunate with food, gently used clothing, and the resources that will help them in finding medical help, shelter, employment and eventually housing to get them off the streets.

Fan’s Choice
For last year’s Pick Your Charity campaign, we received an overwhelming amount of charity nominations to receive a donation from Bounce Energy. This year, we’re doing it again. You can either pick from one of the four that we previously listed or submit your own. We’d like to hear which charity or non-profit you’re passionate about.

To vote for your charity, visit the Bounce Energy Facebook Page and after “liking” us, you will be able to vote for your favorite charity or non-profit. The charity with the most votes at the end of the month will receive a $5,000 donation from Bounce Energy.
