HOUSTON (April 20, 2020) – Cheniere Energy made a generous $50,000 gift to Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston’s Meals on Wheels program. This gift, along with other community support, has enhanced Interfaith Ministries’ ability to serve homebound seniors during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Interfaith Ministries operates the largest Meals on Wheels program, in the state of Texas. Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, the program was full and there was a waiting list of hundreds of seniors. Thanks to community support, all of those seniors have been moved off the waiting list and can now receive services.
The gift came through the Cheniere Foundation, through which the company engages in philanthropic activities that support Cheniere’s values, foster strong community relationships, and enhance employee satisfaction and engagement. The guiding principles of the foundation are to volunteer time and invest resources by partnering with local communities and organizations to identify, develop, and implement targeted and sustainable social responsibility initiatives.
Cheniere Energy is an international energy company headquartered in Houston and is the leading producer of liquefied natural gas in the United States. The company provides clean, secure, and affordable energy to the world, while responsibly delivering a reliable, competitive, and integrated source of LNG, in a safe and rewarding work environment. Cheniere’s operations, construction and development also support energy and economic development across the United States. Cheniere is the second largest LNG operator in the world.
“We are so grateful to have received this gift from Cheniere Energy, “said Interfaith Ministries President and CEO, Martin B. Cominsky. “With Cheniere’s support, and that of so many other community partners, we are able to maintain and enhance our Meals on Wheels operations during this challenging time.”
