First Choice Power Helps Local Non-Profit Reduce Energy Costs
Galveston - In an effort to reduce costs and focus resources on community members in need, the Resource & Crisis Center of Galveston County is excited to announce a partnership with First Choice Power. As a part of the Reduce Your Use initiative sponsored by the company, First Choice Power has donated funds to the Resource & Crisis Center to purchase an energy-efficient washer and dryer to benefit the emergency shelter.
The Resource & Crisis Center emergency shelter provides housing and basic needs to domestic violence victims and their families fleeing an abusive partner. For each woman residing at the shelter, the cost to the Resource & Crisis Center is $33.87 per day. With a shelter that houses up to 30 women and children, the cost to the organization can be as high as $1,016.10 per day to maintain the shelter.
With innovative giving projects, such as the Reduce Your Use grant sponsored by First Choice Power, the cost to sustain shelter services to victimized women and children in the Galveston County community decreases. The Reduce Your Use grant project is designed to provide funds for local non-profits, such as the Resource & Crisis Center, to purchase energy efficient products and services. First Choice Power states, “In turn, this allows our community partners to reduce their energy costs and spend their dollars on programs that make a positive impact on people’s lives, especially those most in need. In short, everybody wins.”
The Resource & Crisis Center definitely considers this contribution from First Choice Power a “win” for the organization.
