Join us for the annual Pecan Grove Turkey Trot this Thanksgiving Morning!
WE ARE THE VILLAGE! We have all heard the old saying, "it takes a VILLAGE to raise a child," and over the past several years we have learned how it takes a VILLAGE to #SupportChildAdoption causes. By Sponsoring, Trotting, Donating, Purchasing Shirts, and most importantly Spreading Our Message, Pecan Grove and surrounding neighborhoods have been Fort Bend's #AdoptionSupport VILLAGE! The Thankful Ones and its partners thanks each and every one of you from the bottom of our hearts. Because of this event and everyone's generous support we have been able to support many children and families in the greater Fort Bend County area. We look forward to seeing everyone at the Trot this Thanksgiving Morning!
The Thankful Ones sponsors its first FAMILY! This summer The Thankful Ones assisted a Pecan Grove family by covering past-due legal bills in the family's ongoing custody case for their three-year-old grandson. Due to COVID-19 the family fell on some hard times. Because of the buzz our Pecan Grove Turkey Trot has created, this family reached out to one of our members to learn more about the organization's mission. After a thorough vetting process, The Thankful Ones board voted to directly pay the family's attorney for past due invoices of $5,000. This payment enabled the grandparents to worry less about the accrued financial burden and allowed them to completely focus on protecting and taking care of their amazing grandson!
Child Advocates of Fort Bend Milestone Reached! TTO's and CAFB continue to cultivate their community partnership. TTO's has been granted the NAMING RIGHTS to one of CAFB's Child Advocacy Center rooms after stepping up with a long-term financial commitment to the organization. TTO's has donated over $75,000 to CAFB. https://www.cafb.org/
#KadunaKids! The Thankful Ones hosted a goods fundraiser for children in the Kaduna, Nigeria. We coordinated and raised over 200 pounds of sporting equipment, clothes, feminine products, and personal hygiene products for needy children in Kaduna, many who are orphans or foster children. Global supply chains are a mess due to the pandemic. Countries like Nigeria are being hit especially hard. More to come on this campaign as the package arrived in Kaduna on September 20th. Our supporters on the ground in Kaduna are mobilizing now!
