Houston

CenterPoint Energy Retiree’s Club hosted their annual luncheon for 350 retirees from the Greater Houston area. The event provided a volunteer opportunity for retirees to create toiletrie bags for the Star of Hope.

Community Relations staff members also assisted attendees with the navigation of the new retirees and CNP Cares websites. In addition, retirees were able to sign on to the CNP Cares site and create their profiles, so they can enter their personal volunteer time.

Meet Carol BealCapture.JPG

Carol has coordinated packing events at Feed My Starving Children in Coon Rapids, Minnesota for 15 years.  In 2017 alone, the retiree group packaged a whopping 72,824 meals.  Carol also serves on the MARS Board, volunteers at Bridging and in 2012 was honored as one of CenterPoint Energy’s Outstanding Retiree Volunteers.

Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit and their approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children.  The meals are shipped to distribution partners around the world.
