Volunteer with the Friends of the Phoenix


Join the Friends of Phoenix as we give back to the community through volunteering. This February, we’ll volunteer at the Houston Food Bank sorting food, repacking dry food into family-sized bags and stocking the Portwall Pantry. Volunteers (21+) get a free beer token for use at The Phoenix on Westheimer. We can’t wait to see you there!
