Henrietta Team Hosts Diaper Drive for Texas

Following the devastation from Hurricane Harvey, Mr. Tim, Kitchen Manager at our Henrietta location, was passionate about doing something to help. Mr. Tim lived in Houston for several years. While there, he experienced Hurricane Rita and Ike first-hand. Having a personal connection to the area made witnessing Hurricane Harvey’s wrath especially hard.

Mr. Tim, while listening to NPR one day, was moved by the pleas of a man working for the Texas Diaper Bank. Immediately, Tim knew that the diaper drive was his opportunity to make a difference. The team at our Henrietta location pulled together to promote the effort to faculty and families. Henrietta’s Diaper Drive is running through Friday (September 22) when the team will package up all the donations and send down to the Houston-area. If you’d like to help and the Henrietta location is convenient for you, you are welcome to drop donations here for the remainder of the week. In another location but still want to help? No problem! Here are a couple children-specific causes:

Save the Children
This is an organization working around the clock to help the children and families affected by  Harvey and Irma. You can easily donate on their site.

We are so proud to be surrounded by such a kindhearted community. What a wonderful feeling to be demonstrating the power of love and compassion. Thank you!
