Houston, TX, November 19, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Each year ACE Houston holds a fundraising event called Build it Forward. This charity event partners ACE students with mentors and industry professionals, to build outdoor furniture that is donated to local Houston charities. This year the students will be building storage benches, which in past years have been donated to organizations such as schools, churches, and Boy/Girl Scouts and shelters. In conjunction with the building event, a college and career fair is hosted for the students to find out about opportunities after high school.
“This is an exciting opportunity for the students to learn how to give back to others by using their hands! This is the only fundraiser of the year, so it really helps to have the entire team earn the money that we will in turn give back to the students through scholarships, programming, field trips, camps and competition experiences,” said Angela Cotie, ACE Houston Affiliate Chairman of the Board.
For more information about volunteering, donating, or sponsorship opportunities please email Angela Cotie at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 832-623-2650.
