At our May meeting we collected 118 cans and jars of tomato products for Heights Interfaith Ministries Food Pantry. Other items such as peanut butter and canned chicken along with $65 cash were also donated. Once again our members demonstrated their generous spirit in supporting our community
Heritage Group and Evening Group members organized a graduation party for a very deserving group of students from Heights High School.
Communities in Schools (CIS) is the largest, most effective dropout prevention organization dedicated to keeping kids in school and helping them succeed. The Club provides ongoing support to CIS in our local schools.
2022 Garage and Bake Sale
The sale raised $5,270 which will be used to support our 2022-2023 community outreach projects.
We are extremely grateful to all who donated, unpacked, priced, setup, loaned display tables, moved furniture, baked, marketed, worked the actual sale, and cleaned up. This is in addition to all the wonderfully generous customers including many of our Heritage and Evening Group members, friends and neighbors. We thank you with absolute sincerity.
January / February Outreach
A joyful in-person Heritage Group reunion with Kids' Meals, Inc. was January's featured volunteer activity as members industriously resumed prepping and packing lunches for this worthy organization we genuinely love partnering with.
An early Valentine delivery was prepared with love from the Houston Heights Woman's Club Heritage Group to our neighbors at Heights House and The Village of The Heights. Thank-you to Barbara Roberts, Programs VP, for ensuring the behind-the-scenes details and to Amy Amos for organizing our volunteer flow and gift bag labels with panache!
November / December Outreach
Giving Thanks, the November Heritage Group monthly meeting theme, reminded us there is much to be thankful for as members arrived arms-laden with a total 115 peanut butter jars for Heights Interfaith Ministries Food Pantry. We are thankful for our members kind-hearted generosity and to member Cathey Harrison for her thoughtful same-day delivery of all these jars directly to Food Pantry shelves.
In support of the Wesley Center's Early Child Childhood programs, members donated very generously to our Diaper and Baby Wipes Drive in such abundance that we lost count except to declare that well over a thousand diapers and wipes filled an SUV to the roof, barely leaving room for the driver, in addition to supplemental cash donations.
October Community Outreach
CIS Heights Fall Kickoff
Thank you to Heritage Group volunteers Cathey Parker Harrison, Dena Honeycutt, Kathy Sandefer and Kathy Wilson for your roles in supporting the CIS Heights High School Kickoff event on October 14th. More than 30 students attended and were thankful for the meal and party favors.
Communities In Schools of Houston (CIS) exists because students across Houston face a myriad of barriers to success. The HHWC supports CIS year-round through a variety of projects.
Books and Party Bags
The Women's Studies Library Initiative (WSLI) continues the club's tradition of literacy and women's history by ensuring our local public school libraries have a rich collection of books on women's history.
Thank you to Amy Amos, Teresa Matlock, Karen Adams and Barbara Mercer who delivered books and goodie bags to nine Heights area schools on October 21st.

Thanks to All!
Great job everyone! We raised $653.57 to contribute to the 2021 Annual School Uniform Drive.
