Market Report: Sept. 2017
This summer, our very own, Vanessa Raanes and Holton Farnum founded the non-profit, Backstage Foundation. The foundation's mission is to "serve, shelter, and support families and individuals in need in the Greater Houston area." Over the summer the foundation completed "Operation Backpack" which gave over 60 children backpacks, fully stuffed with everything they would need to begin the school year!
Once Harvey hit, we knew that the Backstage Foundation needed to step in and get out in the community. We have felt very grateful for all of the volunteers that we have met along the way. It has been incredibly inspiring to see. If you want to find out more info or see how you can help, please click here.
Over the past month, we have gotten the opportunity to supply (clean shirts, socks, underwear, a home cooked meal, snacks, etc) our Kingwood-Houston Police Department officers with items that they desperately needed as they were on a 24-hour shift at that point. It was absolutely incredible to see their willingness to rescue and aid no matter how exhausted these men and women were. They truly are heroes! #HoustonStrong
We have also been working with many other organizations to supply folks in downtown Houston with essential items that they have no way of getting. Most of them still don't have transportation at this point. Simple items such as diapers, canned goods, and bread are still very much needed in these areas. Again, if you'd like to help please visit the Backstage Foundation website to find out how.
