The impact is great. Thousands of disadvantaged children and youth in Fort Bend County will be touched in a positive way through $169,775 in grants to 28 area non-profits. Fort Bend Cares assembled the charities, volunteers and key donors for its annual grant reception on Wednesday , June 10th at the offices of Hrbacek, Martinez & Nestor to give out the awards.
Everyone was on hand to also celebrate Fort Bend Cares’ dedication to the community, granting nearly $1.4 million since inception just over 10 years ago.
Escape Family Resource Center was awarded the Founders Grant, now in its third year. The grant is named after co-founders Dr. Robert McClendon and Jim Rice. It will help with their capital campaign to purchase and renovate a permanent facility.
This year, Texana Center received the Judge Jim Richard Memorial Grant for their social skills and after school programs. The grant was named in honor of Judge Richard who was a supporter of programs for disadvantaged children.
Fort Bend Cares raises money for the grants through a variety of events and individual contributions. Its signature event, “Road Trip,” is scheduled for Saturday, February 6, 2016 at Fluor in Sugar Land and brings in the most funds. The organization is looking for sponsors and volunteers for this event and other activities.
