Champion Energy champions many causes in the community. Today, on National Day of Service, we recognize four employees who give back to the community. Honorees will get a night on the town, and Champion will make a $250 donation to each honoree’s favorite charity.
Joe – Supervisor, User Acceptance Testing
“My favorite non-profit is Back 2 Basics. We focus primarily on teenagers in Harris and Montgomery County shelters, mental health facilities, foster homes, as well as those on the streets. Back 2 Basics tries to be the “constant” in these kids’ lives. No matter where a child moves, Back 2 Basics will always be there to support them.”
Ashton – Customer Care Quality Assurance Agent
“While being employed here at Champion Energy I’ve volunteered three times at the Houston Food Bank Keegan Kitchen location. There’s always this awesome feeling knowing I’m headed to prepare meals for kids who are in need. The Houston Food Bank has a huge impact, bringing individuals together for a great cause.”
Trent – IT Testing Analyst
“My wife and I volunteer with the Houston Children’s Charity. They do a wonderful job supplying backpacks, beds, books, toiletries, and so many other essentials to children in the Houston community.
Most recently, we have helped with 4 homes impacted by Hurricane Harvey flooding. It touched me that through everything, people remained hopeful and full of laughter. It’s hard, but we have to remember that as long as we’re still here we have the opportunity to grow and flourish.”
Poat – IT Project Manager
“Through Champion, I have helped build frames for houses at Habitat for Humanity and volunteered at Kids’ Meals. I’ve walked and raised funds for March of Dimes 4 years in a row. Giving back is important to me.”
