With committed friends like you lending a hand, our non-profit organization maintains green spaces including Buffalo Bayou Park, develops hike and bike trails, plans for new parks, and removes trash and debris from the waterway. BBP also engages tens of thousands of visitors each year through unique tours, public art, volunteer activities, and wide-ranging programs and events including the annual Regatta.

Friends for Life Partnership - Lena L

Gillman Subaru Southwest has been an incredible partner for the last two years. Between the latest #Share the Love event, and naming Friends for Life as a beneficiary of their Grand Opening Event, the team at Gillman Subaru share their love for the Houston community. We are excited to have them on-board to sponsor this weekend's Drive-Thru Clinic + pet Food Bank. The clinic provides free wellness checks, vaccinations, preventatives, testing, and food to those struggling to care for their pets. Things can feel uncertain minute to minute these days, and it's easy to get lost in all of this. We're so humbled to have a partner who helps alleviate some of the burden on families, as we get them services that help all of Houston. That's #unsheltered work. That's what is means to #BeUnsheltered.
