BENEFITING: Cy-Hope Inc
All over our community, children are going to bed hungry at night and then struggle to get through the day at school the next day. Hunger causes lack of energy and focus, and often real physical pain. The children aren’t able to succeed in school and life as hunger holds them back physically and mentally. The lack of hope that these children experience is taken seriously by a wonderful organization called Cy-Hope, a Houston-based non-profit that offers hope for at-risk children in the community. They work with 61 schools, including over 1,500 children, providing them with backpacks filled with food that sustains them through the weekends and evenings when school food is not available. As a non-profit, Cy-Hope relies on generous donations for them to be able to help the children. Join us as we strive to raise $500 so that we can provide backpacks for 100 at-risk students.
