October  2018

It's hard to believe that we're already hitting our fall fundraising season, with the Taste of Cy-Fair in September, our Judy Dierker Holiday Market on October 19 and 20, and our Larry Dierker Celebrity Golf Shootout on November 1. But, this time of year coincides with our ramp up for back-to-school, reminding us of why we do what we do - to make life better for kids in Cy-Fair! We have over 117,000 students in CFISD now, with almost half struggling to make ends meet. But, we also live in one of the most generous and supportive communities. Please take a moment to read our newsletter and learn just some of the ways you can get involved and #bethedifference.

Cy-Hope Happenings
Volunteer Spotlight - NWF Maintenance Crew
Thank you to our Northwest Forest Volunteer Crew that works so hard at our Cy-Hope Headquarters and Counseling Centers' property. They do everything from mowing to making sure our AC works.  We appreciate all the hard work they do in maintaining our grounds and organizing volunteer groups to complete large projects on the property.  They not only keep our grounds beautiful, but they manage our wild hog problem, replace the random light bulb or AC filter, hang large items, clear brush, burn trash, maintain our flower beds, fix furniture, and pretty much fix or repair anything that breaks! We are not sure what we would do without this group of wonderful men that help us with all kinds of projects. 

Please consider taking your donations to The Hope Chest Resale Market during regular business hours at 12015 Barker Cypress Road. All proceeds benefit Cy-Hope programs! We also do large item pick up. Click here for more information on how to donate.
2nd Annual LEGO Robotics Competition a Success!
We hosted 36 kids at our  LEGO Robotics Competition on Saturday, September 22 with  Bricks 4 Kidz Cypress.  The kids were fired up for some LEGO Robotics and friendly competition. Thank you to every donor that supported Cy-Hope through this event and to all of the students who participated. We send a special thank you to Backyard Grill for providing box lunches at this event.
