At WTU Retail Energy, we understand the importance of giving back. Charitable
community involvement is a core part of who we are as a company, and we support and participate in a number of programs that benefit the places where our employees and customers live and work.
WTU is supporting many worthy causes including the Boys and Girls Clubs of
America, Habitat for Humanity, and our long-standing commitment to the Neighbor-to-Neighbor
program, which supplements existing energy-assistance programs for families
experiencing financial emergencies.
From Abilene to San Angelo to Alpine, we are involved and proud members of
WTU Retail Energy understands the positive impact of a helping hand. In today's
tough economic climate, many families are struggling to get by. That's why we've
continued our long-standing support of the Neighbor-to-Neighbor program
– which supplements existing energy-assistance programs for families experiencing
WTU's $650,000 contribution is allocated to 32 community agencies throughout
Texas. Each agency screens applicants and determines who will receive assistance.
Recipients can receive support up to twice a year and can receive up to $300
in a given month. WTU customers can also help out families in need by contributing
to the fund by checking a box on their monthly bill.

WTU Retail Energy encourages employees to volunteer in the communities
where they live and work as part of the employee direct in the community
program. Teams often volunteer hours to Habitat for Humanity and similar
initiatives as part of team-building exercises, and corporate donations
are made available to employees who volunteer with organizations through
our Dollars for Doers and Local Heroes initiatives.
Boys and Girls Clubs of America
WTU Retail Energy donates both money and employee volunteer hours to
various Boys and Girls Clubs activities and events throughout Texas. In
the past, support has gone to the Power Hour after-school homework assistance
program and the Southwest Youth of the Year Award program, for example.
In 2007, three clubs including one in San Angelo received new computer equipment
and software for their technology centers.
