Good energy is contagious
Whether a handful or hundreds, BHGE volunteers give their time wholeheartedly in service to our neighbors in need. While we focus our company-organized volunteer initiatives to advance health, education, environment, and equality, our employees are enthusiastic to help when a community needs to come together such as natural disaster relief.

Houston, Texas Community Response
Hurricane Harvey Community Response
For weeks following Hurricane Harvey's aftermath, BHGE employees volunteered hundreds of hours to help restore the city and region. While many volunteers worked tireless hours to help fellow employees whose homes were affected by the storm, we also recognized the need to help our nonprofit partners recover quickly to serve the greater community.
BHGE volunteers helped in mucking and debris cleanup at the YMCA community center in Cypress and The Center(s) for adults with disabilities in Houston and Brookshire; packed food at the Houston Food Bank; and cleared sand and trash affecting trees along the Buffalo Bayou.
