“We are grateful for our partnership with Xcel Energy,” said Susana Guevara, program coordinator for Buckner Family Place Amarillo. “This generous gift will be a blessing to the single mothers we serve as we strive to empower them with the resources they need to be successful out on their own. Thank you Xcel Energy for the impact you are making on the future of our families.”
Since 2008 Xcel Energy has contributed a total of $54,000 to Buckner for the support of families served by Buckner Family Place in Amarillo. The funds go toward making it possible for Family Place to provide participants with affordable housing, financial assistance, and case management services which include referrals to parenting education, budget training, life skills and individual and group counseling.
“Xcel Energy’s success depends on viable communities where people have opportunities to thrive. We are grateful for our nonprofit partners like Buckner who work to ensure all members of our society have these opportunities, and hope our financial contribution will pay huge dividends in the future,” said Terry Price, senior foundation representative for Xcel Energy.
