2021 Community Service Events and Projects

A Welcome Kit Drive for Houston Welcomes Refugees  
 
HAA partnered with Houston Welcomes Refugees and purchased supplies to help put together "welcome cleaning kit" drive.  Many refugees arrive in the United States with next to nothing. Help them rebuild their lives by putting together a kit that will provide them with essentials to help them begin again with hope and honor.  Many thanks to all the members who donated cleaning items, we were able to donate 40 kits!
If you missed our deadline, you can still donate. Here is an Amazon wish list link to easily purchase. HAA Refugee Kit Purchase Link 
 

Blood Drive-June

Thank you to all of our members and staff who have donated blood for Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center.  According to The Blood Center, one unit of donated blood can save up to three lives. We exceeded our goal of 22 and had 29 donors! A full list of donors will be published in the September ABODE.
