Giving Corner
Help Cy-Hope provide summer fun to kids in CFISD by sponsoring a student to go to Camp Lemonade and/or our Summer Band Camp! 

Through Camp Lemonade,  
we send youth who could otherwise not afford to go to camp to Stoney Creek Ranch for the ultimate summer camp experience, giving students the opportunity experience outdoor activities, fellowship and recreation in an uplifting environment. Click here to donate $130 to send a student to Camp Lemonade.

Summer Band Camp gives students quality music instruction and a chance to play with other students throughout Cy-Fair ISD - building the confidence and friendships so important at that age.   Click here to donate $125 and provide a band camp scholarship.
 May 2018

May brings with it so many opportunities to celebrate the achievements of another school year. But, it can also bring anxiety for some families. Cy-Hope will continue to work through the summer to make life better for kids in our community with our summer backpack feeding program, Camp Lemonade, our Devine Virtuosos Band Camp, summer fun at our Hope Centers, and the annual Cy-Hope Shoe Drive. Like us on Facebook to get updates on volunteer opportunities and continue to #bethedifference for kids in Cy Fair!

Cy-Hope Happenings
Volunteer Spotlight - Ambassadors of Compassion
As we near the end of the school year, we celebrate our Ambassador of Compassion Mentor Coaches! These ladies and gentlemen have spent one to two hours each week sharing, laughing, loving, listening to and encouraging students as they walk through the AOC curriculum.  Each week, these heroes meet at their assigned school and connect with their AOC team. While in the classroom, they watch video curriculum with a small group of students followed by life application questions and facilitate conversation to help students identify that they, too, can work hard, be kind and compassionate and have an impact on the world around them.  These coaches have  faith in the next generation and have invested their time to see students reach their full potential.
Elite Auto Experts Car Giveaway - Graduate Edition!
Thanks to Elite Auto Experts, Cy-Hope is able to give students that have participated in one of our programs (like AOC or POP) an opportunity to enter a giveaway for a car! Click here for complete eligibility requirements and to sign up for this giveaway.
