CYPRESS AREA ACTIVITY!

This activity is for all ages!


This activity is virtual and requires you to provide your own supplies -- Grocery Bags for Food Collection, Food Drive FlyersFamilies who sign up for this event will receive a separate email with detailed instructions and further information about our nonprofit partner and how we can help! Feel free to do this activity when convenient for your family.


We are so excited to expand our family volunteering activities to the Cypress area and to work with Cy-Hope! Cy-Hope's Hope Centers create “community centers” in underserved neighborhoods where kids can come after school and during the summers to work on tutoring, learn life skills, and receive mentoring. We will help provide much needed snack items for the Hope Centers with a "Fill the Bag" Food Drive.


Volunteers will make a Food Drive flyer and attach it to empty grocery bags. Then volunteers will distribute the bags by dropping them off at the front porch or door of their neighbors' homes, requesting that they help fill the bag with snack items, such as fruit snacks, individual snack bags, Rice Krispie treats, goldfish/cheeze-its, capri suns and small water bottles.


Select a date to return to pick up the food donations and let your neighbors know when you will return. On that date, return to your neighbors' homes to pick up the donations and take them home to sort.


You can drop off donations to the Cy-Hope Headquarters at 12715 Telge Road, Monday through Friday from 9:00-5:00. Don't forget to email us at houstonteam@generationserve.org with your service hours so we can keep track of them for you! More instructions and resources will be sent to you after sign up.
