GBR employees volunteer for Senior Share

On June 28, approximately 25 Galveston Bay, Texas, refinery employees and interns came together to volunteer at Senior Share’s Celebrate America Luncheon. The group assisted with setting up tables, decorating, serving lunch and distributing door prizes.

Senior Share is an organization in Texas City that hosts various events annually to senior citizens in hopes of reducing holiday depression. This specific event, focused on the Fourth of July, hosted approximately 500 senior citizens from multiple nursing homes, church groups and other locations.

Following popular patriotic singalongs, local community leaders including politicians, preachers, and business owners spoke to the group. A local restaurant provided a free barbecue lunch and the event concluded with the distribution of door prizes, including televisions, restaurant gift cards and more.
