Please join us in this SPE-GCS Young Professionals volunteering event, co-hosted by BCG Boston Consulting group in their support of The Beacon, a nonprofit organization where we will be helping the poor and homeless population of the Houston area. It will be a great opportunity to network while we serve the community.

 

Since opening in 2007, the Beacon has grown from serving 80 clients per day to serving 600-800 clients daily in four core programs: The Beacon Day Center, Cathedral Clinic at The Beacon, Brigid's Hope at The Beacon, and Cathedral Justice Project at The Beacon. These four programs come together under one roof to provide meals, showers, laundry service, case management, medical and psychiatric care, pro bono legal services and pastoral care.

 

More than 85% of the services of The Beacon are operated by volunteers. SPE-GCS Young Professionals will answer the call to service. Please come and bring friends or family.

 

This time The Boston Consulting group (BCG) has joined our effort to make a greater impact in our community.

 

The Boston Consulting group (BCG) is a global management consulting firm with 12,000 employees and 82 offices in 46 countries. The firm advises clients in the private, public, and non-profit sectors around the world, including more than two thirds of the fortune 500. BCG was ranked second in Fortune's "100 Best Companies to work For" in 2016.

 

Spots will be limited for this event so make sure you register as soon as possible!

 

Please have a good breakfast before coming to the event in order to remain fit throughout the event, because it goes beyond the regular lunchtime and involves some physical activity.

 

If you want, please bring gently used or new items to donate.
