On October 10th, Texas A&M SPE sent a group of volunteers to Houston to participate in a joint volunteer project with University of Houston SPE. We spent the day painting and doing minor repairs to the siding and trim of a local Houston resident’s home. All volunteers involved enjoyed this great opportunity to help out in the community and network with fellow SPE members from the University of Houston. This project was run through Rebuilding Together Houston, a non-profit that has been providing free home repair and renovation services to low income home owners since 1982. The project was a success on all fronts, and was a day well spent volunteering in the community. The Philanthropy Committee would like to thank all those who came out to volunteer, especially our friends from University of Houston SPE. A special thanks also goes out to Mr. David McCalvin for his generous donation of all necessary materials to complete the project.
