HREG Monthly Meeting @ United Way-Greater Houston
May 18 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

HREG - Own Your PowerAll are welcome to Houston Renewable Energy Group’s monthly meetings! They will have a presentation on an interesting aspect of renewable energy in Houston, review HREG business, progress, and plan events. After the meeting, they usually spend some time socializing and finding out what is happening on the renewable scene in Houston from each other. Monthly Meetings are the best place for members to learn about HREG, ask questions, and provide suggestions.

If you are interested in volunteering or becoming a voting member, attending this meeting would be a great opportunity for you to learn more about what HREG does and how you can help. For more information, contact HREG.

Houston Community ToolBank Warehouse Tour @ Houston Community ToolBank
May 20 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Every third Thursday of the month from 9:00 to 10:00 am the Houston Community ToolBank host an open warehouse tour. The ToolBank lends tools (hammers, shovels, saws, etc.) and items (tents, tables, chairs, safety gear, etc.) to nonprofits, community groups and corporate volunteers for charitable projects. Access to ToolBank tools eliminates the need for agencies and groups to incur the expense of purchasing, renting, repairing, insuring and storing tools, therefore reducing the costs associated with service projects and allowing these organizations to focus more of their resources on their mission. Volunteer to paint ToolBank tools blue and/or fill tool orders. The tour is free to all; bring a friend!
