Firm Wide Volunteer Day

Porter Hedges' attorneys and employees along with their families and friends volunteer annually at The Houston Food Bank as part of the Firm Wide Volunteer Day. The group spends a Saturday morning packing items to support the Food Bank's Backpack Buddy program. The Backpack Buddy program provides children with child-friendly, nonperishable, easily consumed and nutrient-dense food. Over the last two years, Porter Hedges has helped stuff, wrap, package and prep over nearly 20,000 meals for distribution.

The Houston Food Bank is one of the largest food distribution networks in the country and was named Feeding America 2015 Food Bank of the Year. Porter Hedges is proud to support this organization that is dedicated to leading the fight against hunger in the Houston community.
