National Council of Jewish Women Greater Houston Section’s 2020
For over 100 years NCJW, GHS has been rooted in the Houston community at the forefront of social change—championing the needs of women, children, and families. For decades, we have gathered annually at our gala to celebrate the work of NCJW, GHS and to raise the funds necessary to continue making a difference in the community. This year, we want you to stand with us to continue to help those who depend on us to change their lives.
Through NCJW, you can honor or remember
the outstanding people in your life by contributing to
NCJW’S GIVING TREE
Who is your mentor? Who is your great friend?
Who do you respect and admire?
Take this opportunity to say thank you and show your gratitude on NCJW’s GIVING TREE and those you honor will receive a beautiful certificate showing your recognition. As a sponsor you will receive a yard sign to commemorate this special 2020 NCJW Event and to encourage giving to the community. Your sponsorship will be making a difference by allowing NCJW to continue to support key community service projects such as:
- AVDA: Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse, an agency founded by NCJW in 1980, which offers free, legal services to victims of domestic abuse, serving over 5,000 adult and child victims of domestic abuse annually. Staying at home and loss of jobs has caused a tremendous increase of abuse.
- HIPPY: Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters, empowers parents as primary educators
of their preschool children in the home and fosters parent involvement in school and community life to maximize the chances of successful early school experiences.
- Back 2 School Store: provides free new clothing, coats, shoes, school supplies and personal care items for under-served elementary school students enrolled in the HIPPY program.
On November 14, 2020, NCJW’s GIVING TREE will be unveiled virtually and all the sponsors and honoree names will be acknowledged to the community. Please join this very important mission and you even get to stay at home!
Your commitment at one of the donor levels is critical, especially this year, when
domestic violence is escalating, and so many low socioeconomic areas are hurting.
