LGBTQ+ WORKPLACE ALLIANCE DAY OF SERVICE WITH THE BUFFALO BAYOU PARTNERSHIP

Saturday, April 13, 2024 (8:30 AM - 11:30 AM) (CDT)

Description


The Greater Houston LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce our LGBTQ+ Workplace Alliance Day of Service with the Buffalo Bayou Partnership.

Buffalo Bayou Partnership is the non-profit organization leading the planning, design, activation, and stewardship of inspiring spaces along the 10-mile stretch of Buffalo Bayou from Shepherd Drive through downtown and eastward to the Port of Houston Turning Basin.

So, wear your company Pride gear and join the Chamber as we give back to Houston and help clean up Buffalo Bayou and surrounding park spaces. Volunteer projects generally include protecting plants, conservation, park maintenance, or trash and debris removal. 

The Day of Service will be an excellent opportunity for our Impact Partners to show our community what ways we can come together to make a positive impact in the greater Houston region. The Day of Service is also an incredible team building opportunity for your B/ERG members and leadership so grab some gloves and let’s get to work!
