This activity is for all ages!


This activity has both virtual and in person components that you may choose to participate in. There is a virtual program where we will meet via ZOOM for an exciting program with Greater Houston Community Foundation and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston from 10:00-11:00. We then will drop off donated items at the Boys & Girls Club from 1:00-2:00. BGCGH will be offering guided tours of their facility to interested families. If you are interested in volunteering in person at the Boys & Girls Club to help with the donation drop offs, please email us at houstonteam@generationserve.org.


Generation SERVE is excited to partner with the Greater Houston Community Foundation for Family Philanthropy Day 2021 - "Empowering Houston's Youth" -highlighting the work of the Boys & Girls Clubs. Volunteers will host a drive for non-perishable food for Thanksgiving meal kits to be gifted to families of the Boys & Girls Clubs. Help us reach our goal of donating 200 kits! We are also requesting donations of Legos, books, games and technology accessories to the Boys & Girls Club. Help us reach our goal of donating 150 activities!


Volunteers will make a 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 donations of non-perishable foods for Thanksgiving meal kits for the families of the Boys & Girls Club and also Legos, books, games and technology accessories. You can also make Thanksgiving cards to add to the meal kits! We will send detailed instructions upon sign up.


Please sign up with us on our Houston calendar so we can help track your service hours and also register with the Greater Houston Community Foundation HERE.


You will also have the opportunity to drop off your donations at a drive-thru donation drop off at the Boys & Girls Club at 5950 Selinsky Road, Houston, Texas 77048 from 1:00-2:00 PM on November 6, 2021. If you would like to volunteer onsite to help with the drop offs, please email us.
