HFB Partners with Houston Area Women's Center to Help With Donations This Holiday Season

Recently, our founder Shasie and our events chair Mimi met with the lovely ladies of the Houston Area Women's Center to discuss partnering with them to help provide donations for their Annual Holiday Store. For those who aren't familiary with HAWC, they help individuals (women, children, & MEN) affected by domestic and sexual violence through counseling, advocacy, and sheltering.  Every year HAWC hosts a holiday shop to bring some light to these families who have seen too much darkness.  They were able to tour the center on Waugh and see the location for the holiday shop. They wonderful people at HAWC transform different rooms per age group with new gifts that the families can choose from.  They really struggle with receiving donations for teenagers and adults, so we would like for that to be our focus in obtaining donations.  At our holiday party on this Friday at 5115 restaurant at Saks Fifth Avenue in the Galleria we will be collecting donations.  In order to have their families feel that they are full of worth, HAWC asks for only new items. So every item donated will need to be new and not a hand-me-down or previously used. Ask your friends, family & readers to donate these items with the "new" criteria. Learn more about our holiday party here and purchase a ticket or get a donation pass here.
