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.
