Backing Up the Community with Backpacks
We had great month in August. Last Saturday, the youth of the Falls of Bellaire Resource Center participated in a backpack giveaway through the working family neighborhoods of Alief. TTEF and the Falls of Bellaire Resource Center collaborated with Capo Joe, Mike Miller, Two Sisters Helping Hand, Keith Focus, and Councilman Richard Nguyen's Office.
200 plus backpacks were given out from a donation of 100 backpacks that the youth decided to give back to the community! It's exciting to see kids making a difference in their community. These kids are on their way to great things.
TTEF received another donation of 50 backpacks from the Alief YMCA. Paying it forward, we then donated it to a local barber shop called Diligent Hands. The shop has been contributed so much to the Alief community taking donations, serving as a meeting place, and organizing services. It just made sense to contribute to their efforts. It takes a community and we're happy to be a part of that community!
