Operation Kindness – North Texas’ original and largest no-kill animal shelter – was recently selected as one of three finalist organizations in the running for a $100,000 donation from “Reliant Gives,” a charitable-giving program sponsored by Reliant. Reliant Gives expands Reliant’s community outreach across Texas, sharing the power of giving with local communities. Reliant employees regularly nominate a wide selection of Texas nonprofits, which are narrowed to three finalists for each round. Reliant Gives will celebrate continued community support when the winners are announced Dec. 5.
To help garner the community’s support, Operation Kindness will host multiple events this week including a voting party at BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse in Addison on Wednesday, Nov. 29 beginning at 5:30 p.m. The public is invited to enjoy drink specials and half-price appetizers, as they make as many votes as possible for Operation Kindness in the Reliant Gives campaign. Throughout the evening guests will have the opportunity to win raffle prizes including the chance have their tab covered.
