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, 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.

WINTER STORM RECOVERY EFFORTS

 

As we look to open our doors tomorrow morning, we know that many of our neighbors are rebuilding after last week’s Arctic Blast.

This is a devastating situation for anyone, but even more so for our neighbors who live paycheck to paycheck. In addition to their usual first of the month expenses, affected individuals and families are facing their insurance deductible and mounting costs to replace damaged items. 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. Thank you for always answering our call for help, preventing your neighbors from facing food insecurity or homelessness.

You can continue this legacy of service by using the link  to make a financial donation, or bringing a donation for the Food Pantry during 9:00 am and 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Click here for the list of Food Pantry items needed.

If you, or someone you know, is struggling from the storm’s impact, please contact Interfaith at fs@woodlandsinterfaith.org or 281-367-1230.

As your Hometown Non-Profit for nearly 50 years, we stand ready to serve.

With much gratitude,

THE WOODLANDS (November 19, 2020) – Interfaith of The Woodlands, serving the human needs of South Montgomery County since 1973, has seen record increases in food distribution since the global pandemic hit our county in mid-March. Since that time, Interfaith has seen a 100% increase in all programs including food pantry programs and crisis assistance. The organization began Holiday GIVING program registrations for both families and Seniors, and anticipates serving over 7,000 individuals including children and senior adults in the coming weeks.

Interfaith’s annual Holiday GIVING program will include Food Assistance, Holiday Toy Drive and Gifts for Seniors to provide families, children and Seniors with gifts and food to make their Holiday season special.

“The needs are great every year, but this year, we continue to see more families lacking the basic needs of food, shelter and clothing as the global pandemic continues to provide financial uncertainty for so many of our neighbors who were already struggling,” said Missy Herndon, President and CEO, Interfaith of The Woodlands. “With the continued help and support of our community, we can maintain our core value of never saying no and helping bring holiday cheer to every person who requests help this holiday season.”

Interfaith Family Services provides holiday gifts to families through their Holiday Toy Drive and Distribution, a program in which the community comes together to donate new toys and gift cards for children and teens. Families requesting assistance in Interfaith’s service area will be able to choose gifts for their children from a variety of donated toys. This year, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, gifts will be collected and distributed by appointment at the South County Community Center, December 7 – 18. This is a wonderful opportunity for families in need to ensure their children will receive gifts this holiday season. Businesses or organizations interested in holding a toy or gift card drive, contact Sarah Thomas, sthomas@woodlandsinterfaith.org, for help facilitating the collection and drop off of these items. Gifts and gift cards are due to Interfaith by 12:00 pm on Friday, December 4th.

INTERFAITH OF THE WOODLANDS PRESENTS 2020 COMMUNITY HERO AWARDS TO LOCAL HOSPITALS IN SOUTH MONTGOMERY COUNTY

THE WOODLANDS, TX (November 16, 2020) – As our county continues the ongoing battle against the global pandemic of Coronavirus, Interfaith of The Woodlands shifted its annual Hometown Hero Awards to focus on our local Community Heroes for 2020, honoring healthcare workers and administration from Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital, Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center, St. Luke’s Health, Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center The Woodlands for their bravery, sacrifice and service to keeping our community healthy and safe.

The 2020 Community Hero Awards were presented by Josh Urban, Interfaith of The Woodlands Board Chair, Congressman Kevin Brady and Missy Herndon, Interfaith President and CEO. Congressman Kevin Brady shared with each hospital his gratitude for everything they do each day to care for our community by selflessly giving to others, caring for the sick, welcoming new life into the world and supporting families during difficult times. Brady said he was proud of their efforts in responding to COVID-19 and as a token of his appreciation, each organization’s leadership was presented an official U.S. House of Representatives Commendation and a Community Hero Medallion.

It was a unanimous decision by the Hometown Hero selection committee this year to honor area hospitals instead of individuals, businesses and organizations. This annual tradition of honoring Hometown Heroes began in 1999 as part of The Woodlands
25th Anniversary Celebration and has continued ever since. Typically, Hometown Heroes are honored at The Woodlands Celebration of Excellence, but the event was canceled due to the widespread pandemic.

“How beautiful it is that nearly 50 years ago while planning out what was to become The Woodlands, Mr. George Mitchell knew that above all else, this community would need to be built with heart. Together with Founding Executive Director, Rev. Don Gebert, they created Interfaith of The Woodlands to serve the human needs of those who called this new neighborhood home,” shared Missy Herndon, President & CEO of Interfaith of The Woodlands, “Today, in the midst of many challenges, the South Montgomery County area has pulled together to take care of those in need like never before. All of these hospitals are a beautiful example of the heart of our community and we are forever thankful to every single healthcare worker in our community who shows up in the name of service and caring.”

Interfaith of The Woodlands is grateful for the healthcare workers that continue to exhibit bravery and strength while serving on the frontlines of this health crisis, keeping patients safe and comfortable in their care. Congratulations to the 2020 Community Heroes!

Help Us Serve Home bound Seniors and Families in Crisis.

Dear Neighbor,
We are in unprecedented times, so forgive us as messaging and activities are continuing to evolve as we work hard to assess and meet community needs while still working very hard to keep our staff, clients and customers as healthy as possible.
Our goal is to continue to serve our neighbors in need to the best of our ability.
Interfaith is continuing:
  • Senior Grocery Delivery, moving it from monthly to weekly
  • Crisis assistance services (i.e. rent, mortgage, utilities, gas vouchers, and prescription assistance) for Seniors and Families
  • Food Pantry Assistance for families includes three Food Bags filled with groceries for 5 meals, plus snacks, toilet paper and baby goods if needed. Bags are distributed by driving through our parking lot.

Our biggest need in the coming weeks is funding to purchase specific and essential foods, toiletries and paper goods in bulk from local grocery stores and The Food Bank. This funding ensures we are able to meet the community’s current food needs, as well as providing financial assistance to families and Seniors who are experiencing wage loss or additional crisis as related to business and school closures.

Donations to these efforts can be made here.

In the days and weeks ahead, we anticipate an increased need as our community responds to the Pandemic. Just as we have for nearly 47 years, Interfaith plans to walk alongside our neighbors in need. We are able to do that with your partnership and support.
Thank you for caring, stay safe, and healthy.
Missy Herndon
President and CEO
