Reliant Supports Waco Homeowners with $50K Donation to Grassroots Community Development Emergency Repair Program

Winter Storm Uri impacted Texas in immeasurable ways, with many still unable to make home repairs without assistance.
Despite summer being well underway, many Texans are still hurting from the impact of Winter Storm Uri. Today, Reliant announced a $50,000 donation to Grassroots Community Development’s Emergency Repair Program in Waco to help with ongoing recovery from Winter Storm Uri. The Emergency Repair Program provides needed home repairs, such as plumbing repairs and damage related to broken pipes that impact basic necessities of living safely in their own homes.
“Grassroots Community Development was nearing the end of funding from the Waco Foundation and BBVA when we were contacted by Reliant to see if more assistance was needed. The timing for the grant was perfect. We are still finding people that have severe leaks and damage due to frozen or broken pipes as a result of the winter storm.” said Mike Stone, executive director for Grassroots Community Development.
Recovery from Winter Storm Uri is not yet over for many area homeowners, as evidenced by continued demand for the organization’s services. Reliant’s donation will go toward helping repair plumbing and other issues caused by the freezing temperatures.
