Tuesday, November 14, 2017 – 11:30a.m. to 2p.m.
For this year’s Awareness Event, the MCHC is partnering with the Salvation Army in Conroe to feed those suffering from homelessness and poverty. Starting at 11:30am, Coalition Members and others will serve food at the Salvation Army in Conroe (301 Avenue E, Conroe, Texas, 77301). All members of the general public are welcome to attend as we enjoy this lunch together.
Also, for a donation of your choice (cash or check), lunch guests can purchase one of the many beautiful handcrafted bowls donated by the Lone Star College-Montgomery Ceramics Club, artist Robby Wood, and participating high school students.
A number of elected officials and department heads will help in serving this meal. We are very grateful for their support!
Starting at 12 noon, lunch guests can walk across the street for a tour of the MCHC’s E3 Center (Equip-Educate-Empower) that will open in early 2018. This empowerment center will be at the old Food Bank building as it currently in the remodel/construction phase. Learn more about the E3 Center during this pre-view event!
