Strong Team of Rescue Men
Delivered some donated house goods to St. Joseph's Clubhouse. The clubhouse serves members that are suffering from Mental Illness and sometimes homelessness.
These items will come in handy to those that are able to live on their own in an
apartment or housing.
We take almost anything that you may want to donate from clothes, shoes and coats to house goods, canned foods and food items.
These donations help out an underserved segment of our community and makes you
feel good that you participated.
We will pick up your donations so you don't even have to leave home to offer help. You can contact us to make pick up arrangements.
Thank you for considering donating to a
worthy cause and helping others.
Throughout the year, The STORM Foundation does work for the Periwinkle Foundation through Spearhead Creative, a company owned by our Board member
and Treasurer, Jeff Smith.
The above project was posted on Facebook by the Periwinkle Foundation after another job well done by Spearhead Creative on
behalf of our Foundation.
This year, we'll erect the art wall for them, several times, that displays the art work of children suffering from cancer.
For Valentine's Day 2023, we delivered gift bags for the children living in the shelter at the Harris County Resources for Children
and Adults Center.
Each gift bag had several treats and a
heart-shaped box of chocolates as well
as a little stuffed animal.
The staff were very happy with our gifts and we made Valentine's Day special for the children.
Ms. Evelyn Emdin, the Program Manager, is very nice. We enjoy working with her and plan to do more in the future.
Delivered some donated items to the
St. Joseph's Clubhouse and also picked up some children's clothes and toys that they received. Since their clubhouse is for adults only, they have no use for children's items. We'll wash and fold the clothes and deliver them to the Houston Children's Charity for their free clothing program called The Closet.
With a donation from our Vice President,
Karen O'Quain-Wilson, we were able to have a pizza party for the members and staff of
St. Joseph's Clubhouse. We ordered 12 large pizzas from Little Caesars and only paid $101.16 for everything, which goes to show that a little money can go a long way to pleasing a lot of people if well-spent.
Everyone was so happy that we look forward to doing this again in the future.
Today, the Foundation delivered 9 bags of clothing to the Houston Children's Charity store called The Closet. We had received 2 bags of children's clothing from St. Joseph's Clubhouse and also our Board members, Joni Waggoner and Jerry Schlicht, donated 7 bags
of clothing and shoes.
The Closet is a clothing store operated by Houston Children's Charity for qualified families to come and pick out items for free.
I met Gabriela and she was happy to receive our donations, especially the teenage boy's clothes from Jerry since they are short on those items. She also appreciated that everything was clean and folded in the bags.
We'll be making another delivery soon and another later on. If you have items to donate, we'll be happy to pick them up and
bring them in for you.
You can contact us to make pick up arrangements.
The Foundation was able to open a Nonprofit checking account at Capital One bank. They offer a free checking account for Nonprofits and don't require a minimum balance to avoid fees. This free account will save us
$300 per year, which could equate to
3 Pizza Parties for St. Joseph's Clubhouse.
We are grateful to Capital One for offering such a great service for Nonprofit charities and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.
The Foundation delivered 2 twin beds to a grandmother so that when her grandchildren visit her they have beds to sleep in. We have plans to deliver another twin bed to a single mother soon. If you have items to donate, we can help you with that. Just reach out through our contact page and we can make arrangements to make that possible. We thank Geoff Freeman for his donation of these beds.
