Paying it Forward in December 2014 in Katy TX

Paying it Forward in December 2014 in Katy TX



Active Rain member Belinda Spillman  of Aspen Lane Real Estate in Aurora Colorado created a December challenge for us to pay it forward by helping some folks during this holiday season. This act of kindness could be by volunteering, donating, giving cash or time, or just about anything. I wrote two blogs about charity events here in Katy and I gave to both organizations.

 

The first was a Holiday Food Drive at Maud Marks Library in Katy. The food drive was named Share your Holiday Food Drive and it was held at Maud Smith Marks Library Harris County Branch Library on December 5, 2014 from 6 AM until 6 PM. The food collected was for distribution by the Katy Christian Ministries (KCM). KCM operates the Katy Food Pantry which feeds many people by providing twice a month a three day food supplement plus personal care items.  KCM is a legitimate charity which provides needy assistance to many in the local community.

 

I cleaned out our pantry and collected items from my office which I decided not to eat due to my change in diet. On December 5, I dropped the collected food at the library. It was early in the morning and it appeared the Food Drive was off to a slow start.

The second item was the Houston Eagle Radio station was holding a cash donation drive for the Texas Children’s Hospital Children’s Cancer Unit. We were all told there was over 500 children in Texas Childrens Hospital cancer unit spending the night at the hospital during the two days. The Eagle did a great job of interviewing both parents and cancer victims. The collection drive were held on both Friday December 5 and Saturday December 6, 2014 at Katy Mills Mall.

 

I went to Katy Mills Mall on Saturday and made a cash donation. Eagle Radio station personnel were very nice and made me feel really good that I made my donation. I got a Eagle T-Shirt and I will wear it with pride. I believe the Station raised a significant amount of cash for the cancer unit. The Eagle is Houston’s only classic rock radio station. I listen to this station on a daily basis.

I do not have free time to volunteer and my charitable efforts center arpound making donations.
