Xcel Energy employees and retirees working with nonprofits in Texas

Many of our employees and retirees spend countless hours providing leadership and volunteer services to nonprofit organizations in Texas.

Making a Difference with United Way

Xcel Energy employees proudly presented a check to Amarillo and Canyon United Way for donations received during last year’s United Way campaign. The check totaled $476,555.77 and includes employee and retiree donations, proceeds from all employee fundraising events and the company’s dollar-for-dollar match.  

In appreciation for all that we do in the local community, Amarillo Mayor Paul Harpole declared March 28 as "Xceling in the Community Day" and presented us with a plaque from United Way.

The check was presented at Amarillo and Canyon United Way’s Guyon Saunders Resource Center, which houses seven local agencies who cooperatively work together to provide basic needs services to community members in need, improving their well-being and quality of life. In 2012, more than 49,000 people accessed services at the Guyon Saunders Resource Center.

Texas 4-H Foundation

SPS Texas’ longest-standing nonprofit relationship is with the Texas 4-H Foundation. Xcel Energy employees volunteer at 4-H camps to teach campers about electric safety, wiring, and environmental awareness, and take part in climbing and arcing demonstrations. Employees also take the time to educate some of the campers on job opportunities in the industry as well as with Xcel Energy. The Texas 4-H Foundation touches every county that SPS Texas serves.

Downtown Women’s Center

The Downtown Women’s Center in Amarillo serves single parents by providing living quarters, jobs, money management classes, and daycare, among other helpful services. SPS Texas has been working with this organization over the years to support them financially with an economic sustainability grant, as well as with employee involvement. Three times a year, Xcel Energy employees and retirees host birthday parties for the children of clients of the Downtown Women’s Center.

Amarillo Area Retirees

In Amarillo, retirees meet the first Tuesday of each month. At these lunches, speakers from Xcel Energy and the community present retirees with information on topics ranging from safety for seniors to life insurance. An HR representative is available to address any benefit questions as well. For more information, contact Henry Jansen at 806-353-3747 or HenryJansen@sbcglobal.net.

Break Ground, Not the Law

Always call 811 before digging in your yard to avoid hitting buried gas or electric lines. Not only is it the safe thing to do, but it's the law.
