The holidays are coming! Yes, it’s that time of year again when
the mornings are cooler and the days are shorter. Thanksgiving is around the
corner and before we know it, December will be here. For many of us, our
thoughts turn to charity, and we hope that you consider ACAM (Alliance of
Community Assistance Ministries) this year.
HAA values the opportunity to fulfill our community outreach mission of providing support to projects that serve renters by working with ACAM during the holidays to help
their network of ministries create a cheerful, warm holiday season for their Apartment Angels.
As the holidays approach, we hope you consider these ministries.
Below is a list of items that these ministries are in need of. You can drop off
donations to our office located at 4810 Westway Park Blvd. You may also bring your donated items to the upcoming HAA Annual Business Meeting on Thursday, November 17 at the Sugar Land Marriott Town Square from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
We are accepting
donations all the way up to December 1. Our wonderful volunteers will then
transport the donations to their designated ministry. Big thank you to our
