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.

         Retiree Mike White

Number 2.jpg

CenterPoint Energy retiree, Mike White was recently featured on the CEAP website for his volunteerism to their organization.  Mike began volunteering at the CEAP food shelf in the fall of 2012 and planned on volunteering through the holidays. It didn’t take him long to realize that the need had little to do with the holidays. He is currently a delivery driver for Meals on Wheels. 

“The best thing about this type of volunteer work is that I actually see the people who benefit from my effort. It's one thing to donate money to a worthy cause, and I can assure you CEAP appreciates the Give Grants that CPE provides. But having personal contact with clients who smile and tell you they are grateful for your effort, well... you can't put a monetary value on that experience.”
