Entergy Texas has given a total of $105,000 to non-profit groups providing food for those in need with three of those groups helping in Orange County.
The local agencies getting the special grants from Entergy stockholders are Meals on Wheels by the Orange Community Action Association, the food pantry of the United Christian Care Center of Vidor, and the Southeast Texas Food Bank.
The Southeast Texas Food Bank helps provide food to various groups including some in Orange County like the Salvation Army and Orange Christian Services.
“At Entergy, we are always looking for ways to help our community beyond providing power,” said Stuart Barrett, vice president of customer service for Entergy Texas. “The cost of just about everything is going up, so it's only right we stepped up our commitment to the ongoing fight against hunger. Our local partnerships help ensure Texas families, regardless of their financial status, have access to nourishing meals, especially around the holidays.”
