We were blessed today to be with the awesome families at the family crisis center.
Our greatest gratitude to Galveston ILA, College of the Mainland PEERS and all the wonderful volunteers who donated their time and toys for the Family crisis center, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!
We hope YOU will join us for Chicktime January!
Thank you to everyone who attended Chicktime November! We had such a blessed time at the shelter’s new facility! We asked the families to write one thing they were thankful for and some of them gave us whole lists! It put our lives in perspective. How often we forget to be thankful for what we do have. In the middle of his homelessness these families choose to be thankful for some of the most important things in life…family first!!
We hope YOU will join us for Chicktime December when we host our 2nd Annual Chicktime Galveston Posada!
Chicktime Galveston chapter would like to thank all of the volunteers that came to help this month! As some of you know, Chicktime Galveston has undergone a lot of changes in the past few months and we had to put our shelter visits on hold. Our transition has not gone as smoothly as we had hoped but we have kept the faith that our visits would continue. This month, we were finally back at the shelter serving the families! While we are still praying that the shelter can find a more permanent place for the families needing temporary assistance, we are certainly happy that we got to serve them!
The children at the shelter are such a blessing to be around and were craving Chicktime! In today’s age of selfies and Snapchats, taking pictures of anything and everything is normal but the children we serve are not living a life of what we would call normal. They were so excited just to have a picture taken of their hand as they colored! The families were so very thankful that we were there and the kids were ecstatic to get a hot meal! They asked us over and over again if Chicktime could be every day or every weekend. We served 49 kids and 29 adults this month and we had 15 volunteers in attendance! We saw a lot of hope and faith on the faces in the room at Chicktime this month. Not only from the kids but also the parents! We are blessed and honored to serve at the shelter!
Chicktime Galveston has been serving at the Children’s Center Family Crisis Center in Galveston since October of 2013. The mission of our Galveston Chapter is sharing the love of Jesus and confidence building! We visit the shelter monthly and bring food and fun activities including crafts, character visits, story time, skits, bible stories, dance, and more! If you are interested in serving with us we would love for you to join us! For more info on volunteering with our chapter please email email@example.com or phone (409)877-6587
We had fun decorating hearts! We also talked about the true meaning of love from the bible. Some of the parents even participated in the activity. Thanks to all the volunteers who came out and shared their love with the children and their families.
We hosted a Christmas Posada for the children and their families at the shelter! The families enjoyed food, gifts, pinata, and fellowship! Thank you to all of our volunteers and donors! This event would not have been possible without them! A great BIG thanks to our wonderful co-leader Elvia Gomez and her family for organizing the event!
