Due to Covid-19, changes may be made as to how our meetings and our charitable works are handled. Please watch your email for updates.
COVID-19 did not totally stop our Court’s ministry to the guests of Hope Center Houston! Yes, it has impacted our Third Saturday as Hope Center remains closed on Saturday.
Hope Center continues to serve a hot meal to their guest’s week days at noon thanks to the generosity of BP and Houston Food Bank who continue to provide the hot meal. Another organization delivered many cases of applesauce which also is given out with the hot meal. Our Court has helped cover the weekends with “double” manna bags and PBJ sandwiches which are assembled and delivered the week of the Third Saturday.
Members are generous with their donations as some have adopted an item and provide the same item each month. If this is something that is of interest to you, please contact Priscilla or Karen. An additional way to donate, is funding for paper items that are used on a daily or regular basis. Currently Hope Center is using ‘to-go’ containers to serve the hot meals. The best way to donate is by check payable to Peggy O’Neil and note on the memo line “HCH Paper Goods”. Peggy and Mike keep the paper good supplies current at Hope Center. A financial contribution ensures that Hope Center receives the type of paper goods that work best for the Center. Checks may be dropped at the CGS office if in an envelope marked “Peggy O’Neil CDA” or mailed directly to Peggy. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org for address.
REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
