Giving Corner
Cy-Hope has had another amazing year of mentoring CFISD middle and high school students through Ambassadors of Compassion. They just completed their Serve days at Impact Houston - serving Houston's homeless. We are already looking toward the fall when we'll have another group of students ready to participate in this vital program.

March 2019

I have a weird request. Could you take a minute to be "selfie-ish" for Cy-Hope? We're asking all of our supporters to help us win the #TexansCare competition:

STEP 1: Print the  Selfie Card  and write the Cy-Hope's name on the card.

STEP 2: Take a selfie of yourself or the group associated with the selfie card.

STEP 3: Share your selfie using #TexansCare on Instagram or Twitter.

Include in the caption why you care about Cy-Hope. The Texans will select one fan to win a grand prize of a $10,000 donation from the Houston Texans Foundation and Chevron to the non-profit or school of the winner's choice and two first place prizes of a $5,000 donation to the winner's choice, plus a Texans prize pack. See  official rules  for details.

Cy-Hope Happenings
Lone Star Cy-Fair's Hope Chest Super Shopper!
My name is Dr.  Renae  Lister and I am extremely pleased to be a supporter of Cy-Hope, specifically The Hope Chest. I am a regular visitor to the Hope Chest, a resale store I discovered a year and a half ago after Hurricane Harvey. As a regular resale shopper, I was amazed and extremely impressed with the "boutique" feel of The Hope Chest. I have purchased a large amount of my work and casual clothing there and am always complimented and asked where I shop. In addition, I have purchased furniture and houseware accessories and could not be more pleased with the quality of everything I buy. I literally can wear an entire outfit from my earrings, outfit, purse and shoes all from the Hope Chest! I have shared with many people around the city about the Hope Chest and how the money supports charity. I would be remiss if I did not mention the friendly and knowledgeable  staff and especially the Christmas shop! The Hope Chest has a supporter and customer for life!
Ambassador of Compassion Serve Days
Students and mentors of Cy-Hope's Ambassadors of Compassion joined together to spend their day cooking a meal for the Houston homeless community, packing hygiene kits, sorting clothing, learning about homelessness, and finally serving the meal they prepared for the group. Impact Houston hosted the group as we served together to show students impact that they can have on their community.  From our AOC students:  "It felt good helping- i was proud of myself-grateful always a way to make someone's day better"
Dierker's Champs to Visit JJ Watt Charity Classic
Because Cy-Hope received funding for our middle-school Dierker's Champs teams from the J.J. Watt Foundation, they have invited ten of our Dierker's Champs kids to participate in the J.J. Watt Charity Classic at Minute Maid Park. The Texans Defense will play softball against the Texans Offense.  The kids will meet the players and do drills with them before the game at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 4!  
Play Ball! - Dierker's Champs Kicks off with Camp!
