Giving back to your community is a special part of the Holiday Season. In Houston, there’s always activities, events, and ways to help your neighbor! Matt Powers Custom Homes thrives on our local community, so we’ve put together a list of 5 ways to give back to your community this Holiday season in Houston, Texas! 


  1. Volunteer your time at the Houston Food Bank! Food is a need for everyone, and hunger hits harder around the Holidays. You can schedule online as an individual or a group of up to 30 volunteers! There’s even options to volunteer in the warehouse and off-site locations!


  1. Help out at City Wide Club’s Christmas Eve Super Feast! This is a unique event that helps prepare and serve those in need a warm, home cooked Christmas meal. There are many different shifts to choose from, so be sure to check them all out!


  1. Support Houston Children’s Charity with their “A Better Night’s Sleep” program! This local charity has many different programs, but a goal of theirs is to ensure that every child has a bed to sleep in. According to their website, “Too many of Houston’s children do not have beds and are sleeping on the floor. An opportunity for ‘A Better Night’s Sleep’ is provided through our bed distributions. This program provides mattresses, bed frames, sheets, pillows, and blankets to over 25,000 children in need.” 


  1. Hold a Toy Drive, create an Amazon Wishlist, or Holiday Baskets! DePelchin Children’s Center has a variety of information that can be found here on the different types of donations that are accepted. Giving back is not only a charitable act, but a great way to bond with your friends and family through events and activities. 


  1. Choose a nonprofit to donate to for the Holidays! Greatnonprofits.org has an array of local charities that could use YOUR help this season. A charitable donation made in a friend or family member’s name makes for a great Christmas gift, too!


Helping others and giving back is a fantastic way to get into the Holiday spirit. With Christmas fast approaching, now’s the perfect time to think of ways to give back. Tis the season for giving back!
