Children and adults with intellectual disabilities will get help training and competing in year-round Olympic-type games every time customers choose TXU Energy. TXU Energy will donate $100 for a qualifying single-family enrollment or $35 for a qualifying multi-family enrollment to Special Olympics Texas when new TXU Energy customers sign up on either TXU Energy Texas Choice 12SM or TXU Energy Texas ChoiceSM plans now through June 30, 2009.
"TXU Energy is committed to serving the communities we live and work in," said Jim Burke, Chief Executive Officer for TXU Energy. "By partnering with Special Olympics Texas, our commitment to serve can reach even more people across the state."
The mission of Special Olympics Texas is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in the sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
"We congratulate TXU Energy for helping us continue to train our athletes," said Margaret Larset, Special Olympics Texas president and Chief Executive Officer. "Our athletes demonstrate courage and physical fitness every time they compete, and our partnership with TXU Energy will help ensure that never changes."
New customers who take advantage of this easy fundraising effort and sign up on a qualifying TXU Energy plan before June 30 will be supporting an important cause with something they use every day: electricity. New customers who want to participate can sign up between now and June 30 by calling 877-534-7396 or online at www.txu.com/specialolympics using the SPECOLYMP promotion code.
