IRVING, Texas, Nov. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- When Hurricane Harvey ravaged South Texas, one of TXU Energy's important community partners, BakerRipley, immediately jumped into action. With a few hours' notice from local officials, the dedicated team at BakerRipley had a shelter up and running, providing food, clothing, and a safe place to sleep for those displaced by the storm.
Whether the hardship is brought on by Mother Nature or just everyday life, the caring people at BakerRipley are there to serve those in the Houston community who need it most.
"TXU Energy could not be prouder to be a longtime partner of BakerRipley," said Kim Campbell, senior manager of customer advocacy services for TXU Energy. "They are there throughout the year to lend our customers a little extra help when they can't make ends meet by providing them our TXU Energy Aid bill-payment assistance."
For the 13th year in a row, the retail electric company is sponsoring the TXU Energy BakerRipley Turkey Trot in Houston, the largest public event of the year for the community agency.
"As we head into the holiday season, the Houston community has much to be thankful for," said Campbell. "The TXU Energy BakerRipley Turkey Trot is not only a fun way to kick off Thanksgiving Day with your loved ones, it's an easy way to support the vital work of BakerRipley. When you sign up to participate, you are helping BakerRipley serve more than half a million people in the Houston area."
There is still time to register for the 25th Annual TXU Energy BakerRipley Turkey Trot. More information and online registration for this Thanksgiving Day tradition can be found at houstonturkeytrot.org.
