Celebrating the Season of Giving

Many thanks to all who participated in our second donation drive of the holiday season: a clothing, household goods and toy drive to benefit the Fort Bend Women’s Center. Among the items collected for the women’s center: gently used or new clothing and shoes for all ages as well as toys like teddy bears, stuffed animals, dolls and balls.

A food drive in November benefited the Fort Bend County Helping Hands, culminating in the donations of canned and perishable food items being delivered Thanksgiving week. The mission of Helping Hands is to feed and clothe those in need in west Fort Bend County.

“I couldn’t be prouder of our team members who donated for our holiday food and clothing drives,” said Sprint Waste Services President and cofounder Will Swinbank. “The generosity and compassion of our staff to make a difference in our community are always inspiring but especially so during the holidays. In this season of giving we know the need is profound for families served by the women’s center and by the Helping Hands organizations, and we are honored to be able to help.”

The Fort Bend Women’s Center empowers survivors of domestic or sexual violence and their children to achieve safety, heal and begin a new independent and self-sufficient life, while also striving to prevent violence against women.

Since it began as a part-time hotline in 1980, the Fort Bend Women’s Center has served more than 40,000 survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault. Today the center’s services include a 24-hour crisis hotline, emergency shelter, counseling, legal and medical assistance, community education and outreach, and more.
