The Women's Auxiliary of Nexus: 20 Years of Service
The threat of rain was in the air, but nothing could keep our volunteers from showing how much they CARE!!
We have some of the best volunteers ever! Thursday Nexus hosted 40 employees from PepsiCo for their annual United Way Day of Caring. This is the 4th year they have invited Nexus to participate and we couldn’t be happier to be included. Volunteers spent the day building fences, organizing storage space and serve lunch to our clients and staff. It was heartwarming to see them put their all into each project and exemplify what it truly means “to give back to the community.” Nexus loves PepsiCo!
Celanese Volunteers Plant and Play At Nexus Recovery Center
The Texas heat didn't stop volunteers from Fortune 500 Company Celanese, based in Irving, Texas, from rolling up their sleeves.
Their mission was to plant shade trees in the play area for the children who live with their moms on campus. They also established a new winter garden to educate and provide outdoor color for the children. Celanese volunteers played with the toddlers and did crafts celebrating the fall season.
