As part of its 2013 Chapter Charity Initiative with PLUS Foundation, the Texas Chapter held an Earth Day volunteer event at the Think and Grow Green Community Garden. Seventeen PLUS members showed off their green thumbs, helping the garden get up and running for the new year.
The PLUS Texas Chapter held a bowling for charity event at 300 Houston Bowling Alley on April 18. As you can see, everyone in attendance had a blast! All money raised at the event will benefit the PLUS Foundation.
PLUS’ Texas Chapter recently presented a check to the North Texas Food Bank as part of the PLUS Foundation’s Chapter Charity initiative. The $5,000 grant will provide 15,000 nutritious meals to underprivileged individuals in the area the NTFB serves.
