In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, Interfaith Caring Ministries’ still ended 2017 on a high note as its 24th annual Festival of Trees raised nearly $50,000 – funds that will be used to strengthen our community one family at a time by helping local families, individuals and seniors in need.

In 2017, for example, ICM provided rent and utilities assistance to 1,000 households.

Lakewood Yacht Club made a picturesque backdrop for ICM’s popular holiday event. Opening remarks by Executive Director Suzy Domingo and a performance by the Salvation Army Harbor Light Choir kicked off the night’s festivities, followed by a salute it its corporate sponsors.

They include TechTrans International, Albemarle Foundation, Norman Frede Chevrolet, and Universal Plant Services. Underwriters included AccuZIP, LLC; Bay Area Printing; Houston Mechatronics; JSC Federal Credit Union; Moody National Bank and Texan Bank. The evening’s proceeds will benefit ICM’s services to local families in economic crisis.
ICM’s annual Toy Store took place Tuesday, Dec. 12 at Clear Lake Presbyterian Church, where 160 households were registered. Parents received a household gift and 328 children received toys and gift cards, just in time for Christmas!
