WASTE CONNECTIONS GOLF CLASSIC FOR KIDS DONATES $100,000 TO HELP FUND PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN

THE WOODLANDS, TX – (June 9, 2021) Interfaith of The Woodlands is a grateful beneficiary of the 13th annual Waste Connections Golf Classic for Kids, receiving $100,000 to fund basic needs assistance services for children and families in South Montgomery County. The gift comes to Interfaith of The Woodlands during a time of expected high community need, as families continue to rebuild after the winter storm, recover from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and enter the summer months. “Summer is a challenge as many families with children struggle to provide daily meals, snacks and supervised care when students are not in school. This generous gift from Waste Connections will help feed food-insecure families and keep them in their homes with rent/mortgage and utility payment assistance. These funds will also support the Kits 4 Kidz School Supplies Assistance Program providing supplies and backpacks for the new school year and support Interfaith’s weekend nutrition program for students when they return to the classroom. We are deeply grateful for Waste Connections’ continued support of our goal to support families in need in our community,” shared Missy Herndon, President & CEO, Interfaith of The Woodlands. Interfaith’s Kits 4 Kidz School Supplies Assistance Program recently kicked off its community drives, collecting supplies and backpacks to prepare to support more than 2,000 students as they return to school in August. The Interfaith Food Pantry Program continues to support over 500 local families each month with groceries to make 4-6 meals, toiletries, paper goods, cleaning products, baby care items and produce from the Veggie Villages. “For the past 13 years, our vendors, employees and volunteers have united together in support of this event, raising critical funds for dozens of worthwhile organizations. We are truly grateful for their continued generosity and humbled by the positive impact on the lives of so many children and families throughout Montgomery County because of this Tournament,” shared Michelle Little, Executive Director with Waste Connections.

THE WOODLANDS CELEBRATION OF EXCELLENCE GALA IS SET FOR OCTOBER AND NOW ACCEPTING HOMETOWN HERO NOMINATIONS

THE WOODLANDS, TX (Thursday, April 29, 2021) – The Woodlands Celebration of Excellence Gala will be held on Saturday, October 2nd at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center. After a difficult year, the Gala returns to honor our Hometown Heroes and recognize the contribution by so many that has made The Woodlands the vibrant community it is today. The event was created in 1999 in conjunction with The Woodlands’ 25th Anniversary where Mr. George P. Mitchell inducted the first class of Hometown Heroes. Since that time, 139 individuals, businesses, non-profit organizations have received the honor. “The Woodlands has been blessed with dynamic visionaries who have not only contributed to its economic development, but who have also given much of their time in service to others,” remarked Missy Herndon, President and CEO of Interfaith of The Woodlands. “The past twelve months have created numerous challenges for so many; and as result, Interfaith has served a record numbers of individuals and families who are facing unemployment for the first time in their lives. Through the generosity of this community, each client has received the help they needed and the encouragement to begin a new journey. Through all of the difficulties, we have witnessed acts of kindness each and every day, making this year’s Gala a fitting tribute to our tight knit community.” Together with Interfaith’s Board of Directors, led by Chair William H. Murphy, Gala Co-Chairs DeAnn Guidry and Nicole Murphy are planning a heartfelt evening, celebrating the newest Hometown Heroes, and honoring the compassion the South Montgomery County has shown to its neighbors throughout the Coronavirus pandemic. Hometown Hero nominations are open through 5:00 pm on Monday, May 31st. The nomination form, along with The Celebration of Excellence Gala details, can be found at hometownheroesgala.org.  Nominations can be submitted online, digitally to nominations@woodlandsinterfaith.org or mailed to Hometown Hero Selection Committee, c/o Interfaith of The Woodlands, 4242 Interfaith Way, The Woodlands, TX  77381.

With your help, Interfaith will be able to bridge the gap by offering: Financial Assistance for Rent, Mortgage or Utility Payments Food Pantry Distribution Grocery Store and Gasoline Gift Cards Vouchers to our Hand Me Up Shop for Clothing and Housewares Interfaith of The Woodlands is also working with United Way of Greater Houston, who has activated MCCARES, the Montgomery County long-term recovery group, providing additional resources to those in need. Additionally, the Interfaith team has continued their weekly wellness calls and grocery delivery for Senior Adults, ensuring they have everything they need during this time. Many in this group are still homebound, awaiting a complete COVID-19 vaccination. For nearly 50 years, Interfaith of The Woodlands has served the South Montgomery County community through times of personal crisis, natural disasters, and economic downturns, because of the generosity of local businesses and residents.
