Each month, Wolfies chooses and organization or cause to raise funds for and bring awareness to by holding drives or fundraisers. We feel that it is important to give back to the community that has given so much to us.
February 2016: Children’s Heart Foundation
This month we are throwing a Swim-A-Thon to benefit the Children's Heart Foundation! Join us on February 28th from 3pm-5pm and help Wolfies give back!
This month, for Wolfies Gives Back, we are collecting gently used books, for Books Between Kids. Books Between Kids is a non-profit organization founded in 2012 to serve Houston’s at-risk children by providing them with books to build their own home libraries.
Whoever said money can't buy happiness, never paid for an adoption fee! This month we are spotlighting our four legged and furry friends. We are partnering with Houston Pets Alive to help raise “Adopt! Don’t shop!” awareness. We will be collecting pet supplies supplies for dog and cat fosters all month long, and assisting with pet adoptions as well.
For the month of November, we will be spotlighting and honoring Abigail, one of our littlest Wolfies. Wolfies is giving back, by raising awareness and equality for children and adults with Down Syndrome. Please join us, as we walk alongside the family and friends of these wonderful people, in this year's HOUSTON BUDDY WALK.
In October, Wolfies wants to raise awareness about higher education by sending 130 students from Longfellow Elementary on a college tour of the University of Texas at Austin and a tour of the state capitol.
For September, we are focused on safety! Wolfies will be partnering with American Red Cross, and Ms Jackie (our on-staff LGI instructor). We will be offering a CPR class at cost for all Wolfies parents and families. Join us this month and help us make the world just a little bit safer, one CPR class at a time.
For the month of August, we are spotlighting children’s nutrition and health by partnering with Whole Foods. We will be doing a special nutrition class at the end of the month to help bring awareness.
This month we are having our first every blood drive, in honor of one of our previous students, George. George was diagnosed with childhood leukemia, a blood cancer. We are partnering with the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center. Did you know that although an estimated 38 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood at any given time, less than 10% of that eligible population actually do each year. Help us make a difference this month. Come out and donate!
Join us this month in striking our breast cancer in honor of Ms Lexi’s mother, Lisa Mitchell. She is true survivor in every sense of the word. We will be hosting a bowl-a-thon at Palace Lanes, who will be donating 100% of the proceeds to the Susan G Komen Foundation.
For the month of May, Wolfies will be partnering with Ronald McDonald House in the Texas Medical Center. We will be collecting capes and dress up costumes, and tutus for the children staying at the House to enjoy during their time at RMDH.
