Cy-Fair Helping Hands
Cy-Fair Helping Hands is a non-profit ministry that serves those most in need in our community: the homeless and hungry. Currently, we are distributing almost 100 Compassion Bags filled with canned and prepackaged food items to the homeless, on a weekly basis. Sadly, our clients on the street rarely receive a meal of fresh food. Our goal is to distribute fresh lunches to our homeless clients at least once a month. We are looking for enough volunteer groups to provide sack lunches so that each group will need to prepare lunches only once or twice a year.
The sack lunch program is a service project that works well for small groups: school clubs, church youth groups, homeschoolers, scout troops, senior clubs, etc. We ask that you purchase all contents, prepare and pack the lunches, and deliver them to our offices at your scheduled time. Monday is the suggested delivery day, but if that does not fit your schedule, we will make arrangements that are more convenient for you. These sack lunches are delivered by Cy-Fair Helping Hands’ outreach teams to homeless men and women on the streets of Cy-Fair. The lunches may be packaged in paper lunch bags or gallon zip lock bags.
The recommended contents are:
1 Sandwich – dry turkey, ham, or chicken and cheese if you wish
2 packets of mayo and 2 packets of mustard
1 Bag of chips
1 piece of Fresh fruit – soft fruits such as oranges, bananas, peaches (no apples, please)
1 Juice box, Juice Pouch, or shelf Milk
1 Individually wrapped Soft dessert - soft cookies or muffins
