How is APG&E Participating?
To help join the fight against hunger, APG&E will offer an electricity service plan, designated as a donation product that supports the efforts of the Houston Food Bank. The Houston Food Bank will receive a $25 donation for every successful enrollment, and will continue to receive, on a monthly residual basis, continuous monetary donations based on the per kWh of electricity consumed by the customer on this product.
"It is such an honor to work with the Houston Food Bank. I have witnessed, firsthand, the incredible work they did helping those in need after Hurricane Harvey and the work they do every single day to provide nutritious meals to those in need. APG&E is proud to provide support to the tremendous service they perform in our community," said Jay Harpole, APG&E's Chief Executive Officer.
