Community Engagement

Our Approach to Social Investment

Milestone prides itself on being a good neighbor. We value the people, businesses, and organizations that make up the communities in which we operate, and we are committed to being a trusted partner. As a community partner, we believe it is our responsibility to support our community by giving back to those who need it most. Our philanthropic efforts are focused primarily on veteran assistance programs, industry-related nonprofits, and local food pantries. However, we also participate in industry fundraisers supporting local first responders, law enforcement, and other local civic causes as the opportunity arises. 

The following are some key examples of our activity in external community events and our contributions to nonprofit organizations:

 

Boot Campaign

We have a long-standing history of supporting Boot Campaign, a national veterans advocacy and support organization, through various fundraising efforts, including merchandise sales and silent auction events where 100% of proceeds are donated to Boot Campaign. These funds are invested in programs that provide assistance to veterans, members of the armed services, and their families.

Oilfield Helping Hands 

Oilfield Helping Hands (“OHH”) is a nonprofit organization that helps oilfield families who are in financial crisis. Historically, we have supported OHH in its efforts to aid families impacted by unforeseen events such as medical injuries, illnesses, and natural disasters like flooding and fires, by serving as a gold-level corporate sponsor. We make an annual donation to the organization and contribute time and financial resources in event planning and participation. Many of our employees are actively engaged in OHH’s Houston and Permian Basin chapters on an ongoing basis.

Houston Food Bank

Our Houston office looks forward to workdays at the Houston Food Bank. Twice in 2019, Milestone joined the fight against hunger, closing its corporate office so all employees could spend an afternoon working at the Houston Food Bank. Our efforts helped to distribute 227,000 pounds of food (22,500 meals) to fellow Houstonians. Due to the impacts of COVID-19, repeat events for 2020 were postponed; however, Milestone intends to resume participation as pandemic-related restrictions are lifted.
