Thanksgiving Preview

We are thrilled to be partnering with Common Threads to help bring Thanksgiving to so many families in Fort Bend County! If your children attend an LCISD school, please consider making a donation there! Or you can contact us and we are happy to get your donation over to Common Threads!  Here's a message from our friend Jill from Common Threads to fill you in more...

Okay friends.. As of last week, LCISD has 451 homeless/displaced students. That number does not include the many families that do not qualify but struggle everyday to have food on their tables, much less during a holiday.This includes single parents, working parents, grandparents raising grandchildren or those still struggling after the flood. We have a week off for the holidays and that means these kids won't get their breakfast and lunch at school.While Lunches of Love will be serving their kiddos ( which we are so grateful for) most, if not all of our displaced families , are not served by them. This is a lofty goal but WE ( Common Threads and LCISD Support Services ) want to give a box of food for all of these families and more! This will take the schools, organizations, communities, and churches working together to make this huge feat possible. We will begin collecting food at all of our schools during the week of Oct 24th - 28th. This will include all non-perishables... Canned goods, rice, beans, kid friendly snacks, pasta etc. We want to be able to have pick up available for families on Nov. 17th and 18th at the Old Jane Long gym. Volunteers will be needed to sort and box and possibly deliver. Drop off will be at Common Threads at 710 Houston Street , Richmond Texas. We will also be able to accept cash/checks specifically for food for families. Email me for more info or if you have ideas or want to help.
