National Kidney Foundation Announce New Partnership
Ambit Energy and Texas have formed this partnership to help you save money on your electricity bill, and to raise funds for NKF. Ambit Energy has a strong commitment to community service and support of non profits and schools. By switching to Ambit Energy from your current provider, NKF earns revenue each month. The amount of money that NKF earns each month depends on your kilowatt hours consumed. More information
Camp Reynal began serving the North Texas pediatric kidney patient population in 1992. The camp is held early each summer at Camp John Marc in Meridian, TX, which was built specifically for children with chronic illnesses. Children ages 8 to16 with chronic kidney disease are eligible to attend Camp Reynal. Unlike most summer camps, Reynal is equipped to take care of children who require daily medication, special diets, and medical treatment such as dialysis. More Info
