May '23: DNOW Lights Volunteers Make a Difference in Our Communities

June 07, 2023

Last month was yet another impactful month for DNOW Lights as we continued to make a positive difference in our communities. From fighting hunger to supporting mental health awareness and empowering survivors, our volunteers dedicated their time and resources to make a difference in the lives of those who need it the most. Join us as we recap the fantastic volunteer events in May 2023.

West Texas Food Bank

On May 1, 2023, 19 employees from the Odessa, TX Supercenter came together to support the West Texas Food Bank's mission to end hunger. Our fantastic team lent a hand and completed 480 boxes, contributing to the fight against hunger in our community. The West Texas Food Bank fights hunger in the Permian Basin by distributing food to those in need through a network of over 100 partners. Our volunteers went above and beyond to support the food bank's efforts, and we are proud to have contributed to such a worthy cause.

Bustin' for Badges

DNOW Lights participated in the Bustin' for Badges event on May 5, 2023. Bustin' for Badges is an annual sporting clays tournament that benefits our Midland and Ector County Sheriff's offices and the Midland and Odessa Police Departments. As the golf cart sponsor and event cooks, we helped raise funds to purchase new equipment and technology for these vital law enforcement agencies. Our team worked tirelessly to prepare delicious meals for the event participants and volunteers while promoting safety and happiness for all.

DNOW Charity Cornhole Tournament

On May 12, 2023, we organized a charity cornhole tournament in Tomball, TX, to support redM, a group of volunteers who help people affected by sexual exploitation. It was a fun day of competition and community, and we learned more about redM's impact on sex trafficking survivors. Our volunteers had a great time and showed lots of joy and enthusiasm while supporting this vital cause.
