July 03, 2024

April, May and June 2024 were incredibly busy months for DNOW Lights, as our employees continued to brighten our communities with warmth, compassion and meaningful acts of kindness! As we look back on the significant impact we've made working with these organizations, we are deeply thankful for our committed volunteers who embody the values of service and empathy. Together, we will keep bringing light to the lives of those who need it the most!

Sunshine Kids Spring Party

We joined forces with the Sunshine Kids Foundation in Houston, Texas on April 5-6, 2024 to help organize their Spring Party. Sunshine Kids offers uplifting group activities and experiences for children battling cancer, allowing them to enjoy the simple joys of childhood — having fun and embracing life! Whether it was arranging the ice cream station or cheering on the air guitar competition, DNOW Lights volunteers enthusiastically ensured these kids had an unforgettable afternoon!

The ride typically spans approximately 150 miles, starting in Houston and Austin, Texas, and ending in College Station. It attracts thousands of cyclists from across the country, making it one of the largest fundraising bike rides in the United States.

Our riders, along with volunteers from Houston, contributed and celebrated with Weatherford on reaching their $1 million fundraising goal!

On May 8, 2024, a group of DNOW Lights volunteers dedicated their time at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Houston, engaging in activities to help kids develop vital skills such as confidence, resilience and teamwork, and preparing them for any path they choose. From sports like basketball to supporting their entrepreneurial mindsets, our employees enjoyed meaningful interactions with the kids at the Club.

DNOW Lights continues to volunteer at one of the local Houston Boys & Girls Clubs the second Wednesday of every month. Summer months have an influx of kids that need to be kept entertained and busy, so our volunteers bounced around from room to room, enjoying activities such as volleyball, soccer, board games, video games, art projects, STEM projects and more.
