Summer Vacations for the Soul: Three Ways to Give Back this Summer

While the attorneys here at Abraham Watkins encourage those and their loved ones who have been injured to contact our firm, we also believe in giving back to the community.

In efforts to serve those in need, Abraham Watkins recently held a firm-wide blood drive to help do their part in aiding those affected by tragedy or disease. Donating blood, however, is just one way of giving back to the community while also giving thanks for good fortune and good health. Below are three instances of opportunities for Houstonians to reach out to their neighborhoods and lend a caring hand.

St. Joseph Medical Center: Adult & Teen Program for Volunteers

St. Joseph Medical center provides a myriad of volunteer programs for both teens and adults to serve those in need. Whether it’s visiting patients, operating snack carts, or helping staff update patient information, St. Joseph provides ample opportunities for those who feel compelled to volunteer their services.

Children’s Museum of Houston

The early cultivation of the minds of Houston’s youth is rampant among the vivid encounters available at the Children’s Museum of Houston. Volunteer opportunities at the Museum include assisting in the Information Booth, the museum outreach program or for special events the museum hosts. In addition to numerous smiling faces, volunteers experience a sense of pride in enriching the lives of Houston’s youth.

Houston SPCA

Assisting our furry friends in need is also a great way to give back to the community this summer. The Houston SPCA offers volunteer opportunities in the form of admission of animals, assisting in barns, adoption counseling, and assisting with tours of the facility to help educate about the humane society.

Those interested in volunteering may contact St. Joseph’s Medical Center, the Children’s Museum of Houston and the Houston SPCA by visiting their websites online.
