Review for CYPRESS FAIRBANKS EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION / Cy-Fair Educational Foundation, Cypress, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am honored to have the opportunity to give back to our community by volunteering with the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation. For the last 8 years as a committee person and volunteer on the Salute to the Stars Gala, I have been raising funds and soliciting donations on behalf of CFEF. The event, while geared to celebrating the dedication of outstanding teachers on each campus of the CFISD district, has had the added benefit of raising seriously needed funds. This has powerfully affected me and my family. Knowing the growing need within our community for scholarships for students and grants for teachers, we promote the event within the community to raise awareness. As a trustee for the last year, I have served on the scholarship committee and was able to see first hand the contributions applicants have made to sustain their families and themselves. Many, working while going to school, put groceries on the table or pay utility bills. This has certainly been an eye-opener and has made my efforts even more critical. If I can help just one child succeed in stopping the cycle of poverty with the funds to support their education, my assistance has been life affirming. Again, it is my honor to be part of CFEF.
