Open Your Heart for Homeless Kids on Valentine’s Weekend

Did you know? On any given night, thousands of youth in Houston/Harris County have
one thing in common: they are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
On February 9th, you have a chance to do something special for homeless kids. Please join Covenant House Texas on Valentine’s weekend 2014 at our community open house to participate in Do 1 Thing. Do 1 Thing is an effort to raise awareness to the plight of teenage homelessness by encouraging individuals to “do 1 thing” to help these youth.
What will Happen?
On Sunday, February 9th, you have a chance to show our young people just how much they mean by dropping off toiletries, metro bus cards, new or gently used clothing, baby items or gift cards. Come over to our Covenant House Texas campus, meet some of our youth and take a tour. And, even better, encourage your friends, family and co-workers to come out as well. There will also be opportunities for volunteering. We know you’re busy, but stop by to drop off a donation or make a Valentine’s card for one of our young people. We’ll pass out your card on Valentine’s Day and brighten up their day. It’s a fun event for all with music, food and face painting.
