How we can help Houston:
Volunteer your Time
The Tarrant Area Food Bank has a mobile food pantry every third Friday. Join us to volunteer from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Como Community Center, 4900 Horne Street to assist in this worthy endeavor. Sandra Stanley, founder of "Opening Doors for Women in Need" (ODWIN), helped in March with her eight year old granddaughter, so this is a good mission for elementary age children during their Summer Break. Contact Ann Allen here for more information, or Melissa Smith here.
The Daughters of the Holy Cross are collecting ring tabs from soda, soup and pet food cans for the Ronald McDonald House. The aluminum can is valuable, but this small metal pop tab is like a gold nugget to the Ronald McDonald House! It is easily removed from the can, and is clean. There are two 'houses' that are set up at CTR. One is in the youth room, and the other is on the desk in the hallway by the kitchen. Collecting these pop tabs is a great way to teach kids about philanthropy and the importance of recycling; and raising funds to help children and their families at the same time.
Joel Bailey is looking for individuals who would volunteer in the garden on a weekly basis to help keep the garden up to its full potential. It would include planting, pruning, watering, and weeding beds and other tasks that may be required. The garden day is usually Thursday mornings between 9 and 11. Come join us for some chores and fellowship. The HOPE Farm project is making a genuine difference in our community. For more information please contact Joel Bailey here.
For more information or questions on these events please either e-mail the church or call 817 386-3000.
