OUR VOLUNTEERING ACTIVITIES
We partner with local organizations to offer monthly opportunities to engage in volunteering activities
We would like to invite you to be part of one of our Current Projects:
Project #1 – Help with the "Formiguinhas" Program
What are the “Formiguinhas” and how it works? Raquel Marshall started the program in 2019 with the goal of raising donations and helping the Houston street population. Since then, the “Formiguinhas” have provided many meals and services for this population. “Formiguinhas” means “ants” in Portuguese.
How can you help?
- Donating some items - clothing, food, drinks or some items from their Amazon List (items should be delivered to the address on the list)
- Volunteering to make the food that is delivered on Sundays, going on the delivery day or providing some service for the homeless. Link to Sign Up to cook the food or to help with delivery: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/805094aaaaa2ca1fb6-voluntariado
