In April 2013, Newhouse + Noblin’s Houston team partnered with Kids’ Meals, a group that prepares and delivers healthy lunches to over 1,700 hungry pre-school aged children living in poverty in the Houston area. Kids’ Meals bridges the gap for 1-5 year old kids who are too old for services from organizations such as WIC and not yet old enough to receive free breakfast and lunch in school.

Last month, Newhouse + Noblin made a donation to Heroes for Children, which focuses on relieving some of the strain and stress on families who have a child diagnosed with cancer. Whether it is to pay a medical bill, buy gas for frequent hospital trips, or to keep a family from having its electricity turned off, HFC is there to help. HFC’s enables a family to focus on the most important part of treatment–the child. To learn more about HFC and how you can help, click here.
In December 2012, Newhouse + Noblin procured and donated needed supplies to the Interfaith Housing Coalition. Interfaith Housing Coalition was founded in 1985 to provide transitional housing and support services to homeless families. Through the years, a broad coalition of individuals, foundations, churches, and service groups have joined the ministry, effectively leveraging volunteer, in-kind and financial resources throughout the community.
In December our Houston team partnered with the HBA AIDS Outreach Committee and provided Christmas gifts for a local family affected by AIDS. For more information on how you can help with the HBA’s community programs, click here.
In November our Houston team partnered with the Houston Bar Association for the 18th Annual HBA Book Drive. We collected book donations from several in-house teams and, together with those groups, facilitated the donation of over 20 boxes of books! The books will be donated to several literacy programs around Houston. Special thanks to Stibbs & Co., Sysco, Cooper Industries, Schlumberger and Linn Energy.
