As you may have seen, BakerRipley has an important role in disasters. We are currently operating the Emergency Shelter at NRG Center in partnership with NRG, City of Houston and Harris County, assisting thousands of neighbors in need. Working in collaboration with other agencies, we pick up after the initial emergency responders and work on helping people restart their lives.
The cameras are gone, the water has receded, and the sun is out, but there’s still significant work to do for our city and our neighbors.
We urgently need volunteers to help our guests at NRG Center at all times of the day especially weekdays, Monday through Friday, and overnight shifts.
We will be hosting guests for at least the next two weeks and need you to sign up to volunteer now.
Standard shifts are only 5 hours long for convenience, and you can come early or stay late to give extra time.
Please register. If you cannot volunteer, the best way to help is to share this message online. We need as many volunteers as possible to help us serve our neighbors.
