The Baker Hughes Foundation has announced a $50,000 grant to support Emancipation Park Conservancy in Houston. The funds will support educational programs, park maintenance, and safety equipment for the park. The grant is part of a broader commitment by Baker Hughes to participate in community programs, volunteerism and engagement with the organization.
Emancipation Park, established in 1872 in Houston’s Third Ward, is the oldest public park in Texas and is home to a variety of events, programs, and services available to the community such as the annual Juneteenth Celebration, financial literacy classes, youth STEAM programs, health and fitness classes, and Movie in the Tre. This partnership with Emancipation Park Conservancy is aligns with Baker Hughes Foundation’s mission to promote education, environment and health and safety in the communities where it operates.
