Free is my favorite amount. Donating to charity is always a good idea but we don’t always get around to it. Life sometimes gets in the way. Xcel has allocated $30,000 to donate to three Colorado charities; Habitat for Humanity, Mile High United Way and Colorado’s Low Income Energy Assistance Program. Xcel has allocated the money and now they are asking their customers where they would like the money to go.
I called, and after learning a bit more, it seems like just a nice PR effort using Xcel Foundation money. It looks like we get to donate the money but it seems to me that they were going to donate the money anyway and they are making us, their customers aware and feel good about their giving.
