The Drive-Thru will take place at Foundation 45 Mitsubishi located on 1-45 at the Richey Exit on August 14th from 9:00am until Noon (16210 North Freeway, Houston TX, 77090, 713-804-5299). All children in need of backpacks and school supplies are encouraged to attend to pick up supplies while they last. Sponsors are also invited to participate during this event.
This community event is brought to you through the caring support of La Rosa Family Services, local Houstonians, Foundation 45 Mitsubishi, and area-wide organizations and businesses. La Rosa is a community-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1995 to assist families, primarily women and children, exposed to domestic violence and abuse. Their mission is to assist victims of domestic violence and abuse, to prevent future abuse, and to promote the health and safety of children by raising community awareness, empowering individuals, and offering positive alternatives to families. Their clients come from 55 different Greater Houston zip codes. About half come from the predominantly Hispanic Northside/Northeast Houston area, an area which has few community/social services close-by and readily available. This has resulted in La Rosa's role in addressing a broad range of family and individual problems both through direct service and referral to collaborating agencies and organizations.
La Rosa Family Services are happy to partner with businesses who are promoting and sponsoring this event like Foundation 45 Mitsubishi and all the valuable sponsors making monetary, time, and service contributions.
The Pandemic has taken a toll on many of the underserved Houston communities and help is needed to provide assistance for many children. According to Juan Martinez, General Manager and Operating Partner for Foundation 45 Mitsubishi, "Our team is committed to giving back to the community our business serves. We are especially proud to help children in our area in need with a good beginning to their school year. We feel Backpacks full of school supplies will provide a foundation for children to begin the school year with pride and self-confidence."
