DNOW Lights up Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County

April 03, 2023

Our day started with a brief orientation outlining the work we would do for the day. Our team was tasked with painting, power-washing, and tile-cutting. The fact that we didn't know who the house belonged to didn't matter. All that mattered was the good that we were doing for our community. We were all eager to get started and begin making a difference.

Working with Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County

Working with Habitat for Humanity was an incredible experience. The organization helps families build homes that they can afford, creating a safe and stable environment for the families. Habitat for Humanity believes everyone deserves a decent place to live, and they work tirelessly to make that a reality. The organization relies on volunteers to help them achieve their goals, and we were honored to be a part of that effort.

Our work that day was just a tiny part of the more significant effort to build affordable housing in the community. But it was a crucial part, and we were proud to be a part of it. Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County operates on the belief that everyone deserves a chance to have a safe and secure place to call home, and it was inspiring to work alongside them in that mission.

The Benefits of Volunteering at DNOW

Our commitment to volunteer work goes beyond just writing a check. DNOW offers tangible ways for co-workers to spend time together while bringing light to our communities. Volunteering with DNOW Lights allows employees to feel more connected to their local communities and each other. By working together to create positive change, we can all be proud of the work we've done and the impact we've made.

Volunteering is also an excellent way to develop new skills and gain experience outside of the workplace. Our work that day required a lot of teamwork, communication and problem-solving. It was an opportunity for us to learn from each other and to grow as individuals.

About DNOW Lights


The DNOW Lights program was created in 2017 at our Canada office to focus on DNOW's charitable contributions to organizations that support food, shelter, and wellness needs. Recognizing the success of Calgary's DNOW Lights program and the growing need for assistance in our communities, we began efforts to roll out a global DNOW Lights program to give back to our communities, help those less fortunate, and represent the consolidated and strategic philanthropic efforts of DNOW around the world to make our world a better one.
