Our Holiday Helpers
“This is amazing” and “Thank you Jesus for all the love!” were just a few of the expression heard from our residents as they shopped. They completed the event by writing endearing Christmas cards and notes, including these sentiments in their packages.
Take a few minutes and watch the fun!
Klein United Methodist Church (KUMC) – On both of our campuses, residents were treated to a hearty and delicious Thanksgiving feast, an annual event presented by the caring members of KUMC. This year, the feast needed to work within our COVID protocols, so it became a “take-out” event. The church members still served this annual tradition with love and compassion, as they do annually.
EES Ministries – A donation of gift bags for every resident at Bonita House! Our gratitude to the organizer, Teresa Baker of EES Ministries and the two other women’s ministries involved: Encourage Ministries and Women Breaking Barriers. These gift baskets included self-care items for ladies and toys and activities for their children.
Wings Ministries – Here are our friends from WINGS Ministries answering the call for a coat drive! Accepting gently used coats for women and children is Marcia Chaney (right) and WINGS ambassadors Michelle Lawrence and Chrissie Chenette.

Chapelwood – The Women’s Perspective Group does it again! Since this year they could not come into the Jacquelyn campus to visit with our residents, they instead dropped off 60 goodie bags, Christmas cards and 18 trays of assorted cookies for our staff to deliver to coordinate the card making activity with our residents. They came back to pick up the cards to put them in the mail for delivery.
Select QB Athletics – hosted an event to celebrate their successful year training elite quarterbacks to perform even better. These wonderful guys gathered toys for the residents -well over 80 toys! Pictured here, left to right are: Milton Holmes III and Darrell Colbert, Jr. dropping the toys off outside our lobby!

Christ Church United Methodist Church Sugarland – The Women’s Group dropped off some special gifts for our newest babies in the BAMBI (Baby And Mother Bonding Initiative) Program. Each infant received a gift bag with special cuddly items and so did each new mom. Diapers and other essentials were also donated as well as snacks and drinks for a festive resident gathering to celebrate the season. What a blessing these fine women are to BAMBI, supporting the program for nearly 8 years, several times each year.
