Texas Company Goes Extra Mile to Give the Gift of Life

HOUSTON, Oct. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As the days get shorter and temperatures begin to drop, we're reminded that the season of giving is approaching.  AP Gas & Electric (TX), LLC, a leading independent provider of electricity for consumers and businesses located in Houston, is already gearing up to celebrate the season, starting with a gift of life through their partnership with Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center.  A blood drive sponsored by the company, held on October 15, included APG&E employees as well as employees from other companies in the 6161 Savoy office building.  Both Gulf Coast and APG&E are pleased to announce their first annual blood drive provided more pints than their original objective.

APG&E CEO Barend VanderHorst has a vision for the company that involves a focus on both residential and business customers in more ways than providing electricity alone. VanderHorst's vision, influenced by all members of the new leadership team at APG&E, is committed to supporting community outreach programs in Houston throughout the year. "Our team will steer APG&E to succeed with a customer-centric approach that includes helping others in our community," states VanderHorst of the strategy.

Other community outreach initiatives that the energy provider, APG&E, will be participating in for the remainder of the year include a second partnership with the Houston Food Bank, collecting food for the needy with a company-wide food drive in November.   The Houston Food Bank provides nutritious food for the Houston area via soup kitchens, meal sites and food pantries, among other locations. 

In December, APG&E will come together once again to collect and distribute toys to children in the Texas Children's Hospital to make their holiday a little brighter.
