Houston

retiree-luncheon-ho.jpg Retirees Club Annual Luncheon

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 toiletry 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.

MARS Supports MN United Way Campaign with 200 Fleece Blankets!

To support this year's United Way Campaign, 20 Minnesota retirees have been meeting twice a month to cut and tie 200 fleece blankets. The blankets were donated to local United Way agency CEAP (Community Emergency Assistance Program), who also received spice kits assembled by current employees as part of this year's campaign. 

These cozy fleece blankets will help children stay warm through the cold Minnesota winter and will be given to families who use CEAP's food shelf and other services. In total, MARS made 200 fleece blankets - 800 pounds of warm snuggles for local kids! We're so grateful to all of our retirees and the work they do to support our community.
