"Freedom to Learn" Chamber Education Luncheon - May 17th
On behalf of the Greater Heights Area Community Fund, the Chamber will present its 2016 Education Luncheon on May 17. With a theme of "Freedom to Learn", the luncheon will be held at the Sheraton Houston Brookhollow Hotel, 3000 North Loop West. Highlights of the luncheon program will emphasize the educational freedom we have as a nation by expressing appreciation for our chamber members who are veterans, our community veterans, and the high school students who will be entering the military. Scholarships to deserving students and awards for local teachers and para-professionals will be given. Bill Balleza, news anchor for KPRC-Channel 2 and a Vietnam veteran, will serve as emcee.
Your generous support is needed and appreciated. For more information regarding the luncheon and how to sponsor, please click here.
Help MAM Help Flood Victims
As you know, MAM’s (Memorial Assistance Ministries) service area covers a large portion of Northwest Houston, one of the areas hardest hit by the storms. In times of crisis, MAM provides help and anticipates being a source for much needed assistance. MAM expects to spend $25,000 to help neighbors and your donations will go directly to families affected by this week’s floods. MAM will be helping families in their service area with: Metro Money for families whose cars have been flooded, furniture, especially new mattresses and bed linens, necessary home goods that need replacement, toiletries, diapers and cleaning supplies, and some families that may need assistance with relocating. MAM will help with rent in those cases. MAM is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Donations by check can be made to Memorial Assistance Ministries and mailed to 1625 Blalock Road, Houston, Texas 77080. Please designate as “Flood Relief.”
