Lending a hand: Volunteers sort food to support the Cypress Assistance Ministries' mission to aid those in financial crisis in Houston.

Attendees at the event volunteered to sort food that will aid the organization in providing for those in need. The event contributed to a more significant cause, helping to keep the spirit of philanthropy alive.

March 23 - Habitat for Humanity

On March 23rd, DNOW Lights participated in a Habitat for Humanity event in Tomball, Texas. The mission was to construct two houses for needy families within the local community. Despite their lack of prior construction experience, the dedicated volunteers showcased their impressive skills in tiling, painting, and various other trades. Thanks to the comprehensive support and provision of equipment and resources by Habitat for Humanity, the project was completed.

From March 14th to April 3rd, the DNOW 2023 NCAA Bracket Challenge took place, aiming to support the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Houston.

The lucky winner's prize was four tickets to witness the Astros take on the Phillies on April 28th. The event was a fantastic achievement, raising both funds and awareness for the indispensable Boys & Girls Club of Greater Houston.

March 08 - Spring Branch Boys and Girls Club

The Internal Audit Team held a team-building activity on March 8th, supporting the Spring Branch Boys and Girls Club in Houston, Texas. The event was a heartening opportunity for the team to come together, strengthen bonds and back an organization that positively enables the lives of children in the community. The Boys and Girls Club provides children a secure, constructive space to learn, develop, and acquire vital skills. With the hope of motivating others, Houston DNOW Lights volunteers at the Boys and Girls Club every second Wednesday of the month. We urge other teams to participate in youth mentorship programs in their communities.
