Ishita Rahman, Water Wastewater Master Planning, Pearland, reports a total of 55 Young Member Initiative (YMI) volunteers participated in both events. Volunteers included Ishita as well as Lizanne Douglas, Carrie French and Carlos Gularte. All Young Professionals in attendance represented 17 different societies. Over 30 bags of trash and recyclable materials were collected at Terry Hershey Park.
In Houston, 5,000 Backpack Buddy packages that provided 30,000 meals to school children were assembled at the local food bank. Both events were professional development opportunities for the volunteers and offered great opportunities to give back to the community.
