Care Package Drive for The Less Privilege and Underserved
The pandemic hit in 2020 and with this came a rise in the number of homeless people around the Houston and Greater Houston areas. The foundation identified the needs that these homeless people had and decided to support them with some of their basic needs.
Since 2021, the foundation has catered to the less privilege and underserved members of our community providing hygiene products, food, blankets and socks to the homeless predominately in the downtown area and other parts of Houston. We achieved our goal through generous donations from members of our community.
Also, our volunteers work tirelessly to source and purchase hygiene products, snacks, and other items that is bagged and distributed across the Houston areas, specifically in the downtown area.
Our Impact: We have donated 200 bags since 2021.
Baby Drive & Mum/Dad in need
There was an increase in the number of requests we got from parents in need to support them with baby essentials. Our community donates baby essentials to us, which has enabled us to meet the needs of parents.
We support mum/dad in need with baby essentials throughout the year. Our yearly baby drive gives parents opportunity to select any baby items they need, and we also support them with diapers and wipes.
Our impact: We have donated to approximately 200 parents since 2020.
Kindness Project for Kids
Prior to the pandemic, we could visit the seniors in Nursing Home with our volunteers which included children and teen, but that was affected due to pandemic and limited visitations.
So, we decided to create a kindness project for kids. Kids make Christmas cards which we donate to seniors with Christmas gifts.
Kids from different elementary schools make Christmas cards for seniors, which are donated to us.
Impact: We have donated 1,050 Christmas cards to seniors in low-income Nursing Home in Houston and surrounding cities.
Christmas Gift Wrapping Event
Gift wrapping serves as a garnish to your wonderful gifts.
We organize a wrapping event to wrap Christmas gifts for seniors. We want the seniors to feel special when they receive their gifts.
The pandemic affected this event in 2020.
Wrapping event resumed in 2022 and we hope to continue this event yearly.
Impact: We have wrapped approximately 2,120 Christmas gifts.
Christmas Gift for Seniors in Low-income Nursing Homes
Although the holiday season is a time to be filled with joy and happiness, for some this is not the case. For some people, the holiday season is filled with sadness due to the inability to be with family and friends. One of such vulnerable groups is the seniors.
Volunteers of this project go to the seniors in nursing homes to deliver gifts. We chose the nursing homes because some seniors in nursing homes have no family or friends who check up on them during this festive period. We have decided to bridge the gap by buying gifts for the seniors and distributing it around Christmas day.
Impact: We have donated approximately 2,680 Christmas gifts to seniors in low-income Nursing home in Houston and surrounding cities.
