Calpine Employee Cycling Team Emphasizes Safety With Bike Donations

At two holiday events hosted today by Calpine Corporation’s (NYSE:CPN) MS 150 cycling team and fellow employee volunteers, 110 underprivileged children served by five local organizations learned how to be safe while riding brand new bicycles.

Sixty bikes and helmets went to 30 boys and 30 girls ages 8-10 served by four Houston-area Boys and Girls Clubs:

  • The John and Cissy Havard Boys and Girls Club on Airline Drive
  • The Jim and Barbara Morefield Boys and Girls Club on Selinsky Street
  • The NFL YET at James Driver Park Boys and Girls Club on Bentley Street
  • The Holthouse Boys and Girls Club on Canal Street

Another 50 bikes and helmets went to boys ages 10-12 who play with the Lindale Little League. The league plays at Moody Park, which Calpine has adopted as part of its Community Leaders program partnership with the Houston Astros and the City of Houston. Over the next five years, Calpine will sponsor the redevelopment of the youth softball and baseball fields at Moody Park. Employees will have the opportunity to volunteer as coaches or mentors and to provide wellness and educational programs for the park’s patrons. Employees will work alongside wounded veterans, who will be hired by the Astros to serve as field managers.

“Our employees found this project very exciting because it combined three things we are passionate about – safety, wellness and community service. The Calpine MS-150 team members and their co-workers donated the funds to purchase the bikes and helmets, and they volunteered for an entire day to assemble all 110 bikes,” said Thad Hill, Calpine’s Chief Operating Officer and a national trustee of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “We are thankful to all of our partners in this project for their great work year round to help children in our community, and to the DPS for providing hands-on safety training for these youngsters.”
