Joni DeGuzman was very touched by our Random Act of Kindness today.  They have not been able to be in their house for the past 7 weeks after the storm.  And, she is not sure when it will be ready!  When you think you have a big problem, think of this family.
Thank you CCISD for bringing one of your student's families to us for help.  CCISD is much more than just a school district.  They are a family who cares and helps one another.
Thank you for all you have done this past year and Go And Do Likewise.

Dear Scott Rainey,
We presented Juanita, and lady who works for Rena, with a Random Act of Kindness this morning.  Juanita's nephew that she has raised as her son passed away and they do not have the money for a funeral.  She arrived at Brookdale to meet us without knowing why, she had been peeling potatoes for the BBQ they will have to help raise the money needed for Jonathan's funeral.
Juanita accepted our gift with tears and many thanks to each of you.

Please help a young man from the Harris County Youth Village make his project a success.
