The ACHE – SETC Community Outreach & Golf Tournament Committee kicked off spring 2011 by partnering with the Houston Food Bank (HFB) and offered chapter members two great community service opportunities.
On Tuesday April 26, an enthusiastic group of 22 volunteers assisted with inspecting, assessing and sorting boxes of donated food and household items, and presorting, relabeling and repacking household bulk items. This activity took place at the HFB’s Herzstein warehouse on Eastex Freeway from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.
On Saturday May 7, 11 volunteers assisted senior citizens in the community at Bethel’s Heavenly Hands (BHH) by sorting through clothing donations so the staff could hand these items out, and loaded boxes of food donated from the HFB into vehicles. These activities took place at BHH’s Fondren location from 9:00am to 11:00am.
Both these opportunities were open to ACHE members, as well as non-members, and offered the chance to bond with family, friends and coworkers and serve the community. The HFB is doing tremendous work assisting over 865,000 individuals with food each year in Houston and southeast Texas. These events helped ACHE – SETC in pursuing our goals of supporting and giving back to the community.
The Community Outreach & Golf Tournament Committee looks forward to our next event – the 12th Annual Golf Tournament on Thursday October 6, 2011 at Meadowbrook Farms Country Club.
