REFLECTION QUESTION: What is your one takeaway from this experience? 

“Taking the time to honor important figures from the past is important in the present and for our future.”

“Even the smallest contribution adds to the larger movement toward change and awareness.”

“The power of community building.”


Our partnership with Volunteer Houston was key to coordinating the largest single day of service in our company’s history. We deployed more than 4,000 Tweeps across Houston to serve alongside local volunteers and community members. We leave Houston with heartfelt gratitude for the warm welcome we received from the 49 community agencies we worked with. Thank you for showing us that the spirit of service and community is alive and well in your great city!

REFLECTION QUESTION: How would you describe your volunteer experience to your best friend?

“It felt very meaningful and felt like I was making a change. Also, it was very fun and I recommend doing it with a friend.”

“My volunteer experience granted me a sense of joy and satisfaction that I am impacting children in the community by preventing the consequences of childhood food insecurity. It was also very well organized! I hope that the children who will receive these food sacks obtain healthy and nourishing meals every day.”


“We had a great experience working with Gayla from Volunteer Houston! They were exceptional in finding the right project for our group and keeping in contact with us during the entire process. We really had a great time and look forward to our next event with Volunteer Houston!”
