Happy Turkey Month!!
Let me start by saying “Thank You” to all those who have purchased tables/tickets for our Village Gala 2018! For those that still would like to attend, there are a few more days to purchase tickets and/or tables. This year, we are all about saying “Thank You” to the lady that had the courage to plan and create a safe place for our children/loved ones, Kim Brusatori. Please contact Anne Marie Blacketer @ 281-358-6172 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information.
Village News - September is typically a turnaround month for The Village because of sponsors and families making plans to attend our gala. September 2018 has held true to the trend. This was the first month in some time that we were able to turn a profit. This was nice to see as we try to end the year on a positive note.
The Village received a grant from the Rotary Club of Humble. This grant will be used to expand the supplies and equipment for our Learn program. Thank you so much Rotary Club.
I wanted to remind everyone that The Village received a grant from the HCDE (Harris County Department of Education) to help fund our After School Care Program for anyone 16 to 21 (not yet graduated). We are now accepting applications, so please help us spread the word to all families in our community. What a great way to prepare our loved ones for the time after graduation.
As you get ready to prepare to shop this holiday season, do not forget about the Village Thrift store. We will be running weekly specials and our own Black Friday sales event. Hope to see you there.
Remember to continue to check in with us via Remind.com for updated needs and happenings.
See you at the Village Gala!
