Cheers to Volunteers, Compassion In Action Stories, Katy ServeFest

Thanks a Million!


It is with heartfelt thanks we say thank you to all of our many volunteers and supporters. Over two weekends almost 600 volunteers came out to give their time and talents, representing over 4,000 volunteer hours. We had volunteers from Brenham, Beaumont, The Woodlands, Lufkin, Houston, Sugar Land and many other towns. We also thank our partnering churches, Alief Baptist, Epiphany of Our Lord Catholic Church, The Fellowship at Cinco Ranch, Grace Fellowship UMC, Grand Lakes Presbyterian and many more. Your participation is helping us change our community for the better. A special thank you to our community partners, Kosmos Coffee and Chick-Fil-A, who graciously donated food and coffee for both weekends.
