Cirro Energy is a Texas company, with deep roots in the community. Cirro Energy looks for ways to get involved in local causes and encourages its employees to do the same. If you’re looking for a way to get involved in your community this holiday season, Cirro Energy has a few charities we support that you may want to consider:
- Grace Bridge Food Bank: This nonprofit community outreach was established in April 2011, to serve the Highway 380 corridor bordering Collin and Denton counties. This organization provides vital resources to families and individuals, including job-search training, eye care clinics, parenting seminars, and educational guidance. They also provide food, school supplies, clothing, cleaning supplies, diapers, appliances, furniture and more.
- Kids Meals: This Houston-based charity fights childhood hunger by providing a “Meals on Wheels” type service that delivers free nutritious meals each weekday year round to families with children age 5 and younger. Kids’ Meals also provides bags of groceries, sponsors Easter egg hunts, delivers Thanksgiving turkey baskets, hosts Christmas parties, and engages children by involving them in community activities and taking them on outings.
- North Texas Food Bank: Based in Dallas, this nonprofit hunger relief organization has been helping people since 1982 by distributing donated, purchased, and prepared foods through a network of more than 250 partner agencies in 13 counties. Striving to make a difference in people’s lives, the NTFB supports the nutritional needs of children, families, and seniors by offering education, advocacy, and strategic partnerships.
- Network of Community Ministries: Founded in 1985, this nonprofit organization gives assistance with the goal of helping people achieve long-term independence. The Network of Community Ministries, also known as NETWORK, provides food, shelter, clothing and utility service to adults, children and the elderly. NETWORK meets the dental needs of uninsured children, and provides seniors with resources to allow them to remain independent, living in their own homes. NETWORK is based in Richardson, Texas, and has a service area that encompasses 14 zip codes in Dallas County.
- Houston Food Bank: This nonprofit seeks to lead the fight against hunger, and in 2008 merged with End Hunger Network in order to have a more effective outreach and make better use of community resources. Each week the Houston Food Bank feeds 137,000 people, half of whom are children, and half of whom are from working families. In the fiscal year 2012-2013, they were able to distribute 64 million nutritious meals, as well as other necessities to those in need.
