OUR COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
Our commitment to community support across Texas began in the Texas Panhandle. Since 2012, we have donated over $200,000 to three key community initiatives throughout the region – education, health care and public safety.
After discussions with local community leaders, we chose to partner with three educational institutions to ensure students within the Panhandle had access to the best resources to boost student learning for promising futures. Some of our key donations in this category include:
- West Texas A&M University’s AJ Swope Scholarship Fund
- Amarillo College (Electrical Lineman Program)
- Clarendon College (Wind Energy Program)
Cross Texas has also supported initiatives that focus on spreading awareness and increasing assistance to local residents in need of medical care. We are proud to be corporate sponsors for the Medical Center League House and American Heart Association.
“Cross Texas Transmission and its employees are very sincere about helping the communities they serve. The Medical Center League House in Amarillo has been very fortunate to be on the receiving end of their kindness. The past two years MCLH has received a grant, which has helped us help families who travel to Amarillo for medical care during their time of need, whether it is an emergency hospital stay, cancer treatments, hospice visits or funerals.”Amber Glawe, President & Executive Director

As our third initiative in the Panhandle, Cross Texas has also supported public safety departments within the Panhandle region. This support reinforces our belief that the strength of the communities lies in the unity of the people who live and work in them.

“We would like to publicly thank Cross Texas Transmission (the company who handles the large power lines in Hall County) for their generous donation to the Hall County Sheriff's Office Community Policing Fund. These ATVs have been a huge asset to the department for responding to calls in hard-to-reach areas of the county (where a normal patrol Tahoe is not able to travel). Thanks again Cross Texas Transmission! We greatly appreciate your support!”Hall County Sherriff’s Office
