Oilfield Helping Hands was started in 2003 by several Houston Halliburton Baroid employees when they organized a sporting clays tournament to benefit a fellow employee whose family savings had been depleted by several serious - and expensive - surgeries and medical problems. The event was such a huge success that the group decided to continue their efforts.
We raise money through our corporate memberships and four fund-raising events each year. We also have several sponsors for each of the events, who donate services and items for door prizes and auctions, so that expenses for each event are kept to the lowest possible amount and we accept cash donations.
The funds raised are given, based on need, to members of the Houston-area oilfield family that live and/or work within the greater Houston and surrounding areas, including Harris, Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Liberty, Montgomery and Waller counties.
