2nd Annual Katy ServeFest: Compassion in Action, Community Volunteer
Effort to Benefit Calvin Nelms Charter School
Area churches and community leaders formally announced an effort to beautify and support Calvin Nelms Charter School located at 20625 Clay Road in Katy with an Extreme Makeover type of experience that is this year’s Katy ServeFest, a compassion in action project. The kick-off was held at The Fellowship at Cinco Ranch on Sunday afternoon, June 10th, as area churches and members gathered to celebrate last years inaugural Katy ServeFest and to plan and prepare for this year’s event.
“We want the community at large to know that they can make a difference in their city and have fun doing it,” says Diane Walker, Executive Director of CompassionKaty.org. “Last year we helped Faith West with a similar type of volunteer event and the results were amazing. The school officials and families were impressed with the difference our community volunteers made to the overall improvement of their school.”
The Extreme Makeover project at Calvin Nelms Charter School will include landscaping work, painting, remodeling, school preparation support for oncoming students, and more, on July 28th and August 4th from 8am to 5pm. Volunteers are encouraged to visit: www.CompassionKaty.org to learn how they can help and get on the schedule or call (281)395-3950. All work is pre-planned in 4-hour increments and tailored to the volunteers talents and abilities. Compassion Katy will also accept financial donations to support this effort specifically.
“We plan to produce an entertaining and informative video on-line documenting our community involvement,” says Mrs. Walker.
