Celebration of Giving
Assistance League of Houston holds a holiday party every December at Texas Children’s Hospital to present gift cards for food, clothing and other items to patients and their families. Families are sponsored by Assistance League of Houston members, local businesses and individual donors. In December 2017, 41 patients received more than $16,400 in gift cards through this program and patients and our Philanthropic Partner, the Denali Foundation, donated art boxes to the patients and their siblings.
Head Start Readers
ALH volunteers provide a Literacy Enrichment Program to students at a Head Start Center by reading to them once a month, October through April. During the year ended May 31, 2018, 74 students also received over 518 new and gently used books as a result of this program. Additionally, 4 teachers received 28 books.
