Houston P. A. hosted by Laurent

Houston P.A. is a weekly program of conversation hosted by Laurent Fouilloud-Buyat (just call him Laurent, pronounced low-ront). Each week, Laurent invites you to meet the people who make Houston unique: the museum curators, scientists, writers, dancers, musicians, civil servants, the neighbor who used to be an alcoholic but is now in recovery, and the one who has donated two gallons of blood in his lifetime ... they're on Houston Public Affairs, the show about the people of Houston....

Steve Lufburrow is the president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Houston and with him is Jim Freeze, their vice president of donated goods retail. Goodwill has partnered up with Combined Arms to serve veterans and since Jim served with the US Army in Iraq (2 tours), we spend some times hearing about his experience and then we discuss why sometimes being a veteran is a barrier to employment. Goodwill is making sure veterans get the need they deserve to transition from our armed forces and into civilian life. We also discuss the many other programs Goodwill runs to help our community and how when you donate a dollar, a full 95% goes straight to serving people. Donating makes great holiday gifts, folks! www.Goodwillhouston.org
