News & Announcements
Helping others can provide a new sense of purpose that may have been dwindling as a result of the new way of life we’ve endured in 2020. So in order to breathe new life into 2021 and beyond, it’s time to look outside ourselves and focus on others.
The good you put out into the world will not only benefit the organization you’re volunteering with, but also will leave your family feeling good about the positive work you’ve accomplished together.
People in your everyday life may be struggling much more than you know. So what can you do to help?
I was thinking about how in certain instances of learned poverty it takes outside influences to change the mindset. The Brazos Education Foundation really did change the trajectory of my life. I am forever grateful.
