Energy Assistance Program Launched

Some East Texans will not be left in the dark. This morning, Reliant Energy presented an $8,000 check to the Greater East Texas Community Action Program to help Tyler families.

The energy company launched a community assistance program called "Care." It supports Tyler families who cannot afford their electricity bills during the hot weather. Community action director, Karen Swenson, says this is a wonderful way to give back to those in need.

You can donate to the Care program by giving a little extra in your monthly electric bill.
