Cy-Fair Helping Hands is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was founded to help the homeless of Cy-Fair in northwest Houston. It started with one woman and a giant pot of soup served from the back of her pickup truck. Cy-Fair Helping Hands, which began as a soup kitchen and a community garden, has evolved into a full-fledged ministry, including a food pantry, school-supply distribution, holiday drives, and a food pantry.
CFHH is in constant need of volunteers to help fill its pantry. Volunteers must have a passion for serving others and experience in fundraising, clerical work, or similar positions. Bilingual volunteers are needed for various tasks such as stocking the food pantry, running food distribution drives-throughs, and helping clients select food. It’s important to note that volunteers need to be physically fit and able to lift large crates of food to help the organization serve as many people as possible.
The charity also provides warm clothing and Christmas gifts to homeless children. Cy-Fair Helping Hands was founded in 2010 and has been helping those in need since 2010. The organization relies on donations from the community. The fourth annual Cards of Hope campaign will distribute more than 500 $50 gift cards to homeless children and teens. Another service Cy-Fair Helping Hands provides is Fellowship Wednesdays, where clients receive a hot meal, warm clothing, flashlights, and a special Christmas toy.
