When we began our military charity on the Fourth of July, we had no idea that we would receive such an overwhelming response! We are proud to announce that we are extending the campaign, in order to give a much support to this amazing charity as possible. Be sure to share our Facebook page with your friends and let them know that for each new “like” on the page, $1 will go directly to Operation Homefront.
As we draw closer to Veteran’s Day, we continue to appreciate everything that Operation Homefront does, especially for military families in Texas!
On Christmas Day, brighten the day of nursing home residents! This opportunity is brought to us by Volunteer Houston. Scroll down to the bottom listing.
