Today was a wonderful day! Ken Wheat from CenterPoint Energy won one free year of membership to our organization and donated it to the Northshore Food Bank! We love our members and all of the amazing things they do.

Ken Wheat had this to say about his experience with his company, Centerpoint Energy, the Northshore Food Bank, and the Northshore Home Builders Association:
"I am honestly grateful to have won the free membership; however, my company, CenterPoint Energy, had the dues in the budget already, and was very encouraging to leave the budget intact. As a member of a company that is very focused on community development, I wanted to donate the membership gift to a non-profit so they could join the [NHBA]. I realize there are many great non-profits in our community that fill some of the most important needs; however, I was fortunate to see first-hand how one organization, the Northshore Food Bank, serves our community. Their mission is to feed the hungry and serve those in need on the Northshore with dignity and compassion. I believe the affiliation will make us all stronger.
I have been a member of the [NHBA] for over 30 years and I have always been inspired by the organization’s philanthropy. The history of how much the [NHBA] has given to our community is proof of the inherent values of its members and how much caring for our community has remained at the center of the organization's core values.
I would encourage more non-profits to become members of the [NHBA], after all, we share common values. “We’re all in this together” is probably an understatement to the positive power and impact all these organizations make in our community."
