As our county continues the ongoing battle against the global pandemic of Coronavirus, Interfaith of The Woodlands shifted its annual Hometown Hero Awards to focus on our local Community Heroes for 2020, honoring healthcare workers and administration from Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital, Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center, St. Luke's Health, Texas Children's Hospital The Woodlands and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center The Woodlands for their bravery, sacrifice and service to keeping our community healthy and safe. 

The 2020 Community Hero Awards were presented by Josh Urban, Interfaith of The Woodlands Board Chair, Congressman Kevin Brady and Missy Herndon, Interfaith President and CEO. 

Congrats to our 2020 Community Heroes!
Holiday GIVING Begins

Help Interfaith brighten the Holiday Season in our community by offering your support. Holiday GIVING provides families, children and Seniors with gifts and food to make their Holiday season special through our Toy Drive and Gifts for Seniors Programs.

Interfaith Family Services provides holiday gifts to families through the Holiday Toy Drive, a program in which the community comes together to donate new toys and gift cards for children and teens. Interfaith Senior Services provides holiday gifts for senior adults, 62 and older though the Gifts for Seniors Program. Each family receiving Holiday assistance is given food pantry staples and holiday foods to prepare a traditional Holiday Meal with our Food Pantry Assistance. 

You can also shop the Interfaith Amazon Wish List, an easy way to donate and gifts are shipped directly to Interfaith:
