Volunteering and Nonprofit Operations During a Global Pandemic
Companies rapidly transitioned to remote and virtual work environments upon the spike of COVID-19 infections throughout Houston.  As we adjust to adjust to masks, distancing, online grocery shopping (with curbside delivery) and working from home…What is one thing we can do to uplift our spirits and help others during these challenging times?  What does volunteering look like during a global pandemic?  Join us as we dive into the Foundation’s virtual volunteering opportunities and learn more about what we are doing to offer safe in-person events.
