Last Thursday, the organization’s staff visited about upcoming events with prospective volunteers in Sugar Land at a Waterside, Riverstone Development model home, where a volunteer social was hosted. “Those that came were on board to volunteer, wanted to get involved and many of them have signed up,” said Executive Director Angie Wierzbicki. Two upcoming events, the 2015 Road Trip and the Doggone Fun Run, are in the making and organizers need volunteers to help out for what will weigh into the financial support benefitting non-profit organizations assisted by Fort Bend Cares. The foundation generates its funds from individual and corporate donations and also fund-raising activities. From its recent call to action at the Riverstone subdivision, which some may know is in Sugar Land and Missouri City, Fort Bend Cares will soon be heading to Rosenberg at Another Time Soda Foundation on Sept. 4, 5:30 – 7 p.m., to solicit more area volunteers. “We decided to host two socials so that we could be more accessible to people around the county,” said Wierzbicki. She also said that interested persons from Sugar Land, Missouri City, Stafford and the surrounding area unable to make the event last week are asked to attend and “make your own sundaes,” as “it’s going to be fun.” Wierzbicki and the foundation’s volunteer leaders will also be there “to chat about our organization and get to know you, HOUSTON FAMILIES... This coulD be YOUR CHILD. London prospective volunteers.” Fort Bend Cares operates under the guidance of a board of trustees led by Walt White as chairman. Last month, White announced the selection of four new board members, FBISD Superintendent Charles Dupre; Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital CEO, Gregory Haralson; Sugar Land attorney, Justin Flint; and active social and civic community supporter, Patty Ward of Sugar Land. The foundation reports raising more than $1.2 million since it began in 2004. This year over $160,000 in grants was awarded to 22 area non-profit organizations that support children and youth with physical, health, educational, recreational and emotional needs. “Some of the grants are for specific programs and items, and not just a one time shot,” advises Wierzbicki, “and hundreds of kids will be impacted like those served by Access Health, for example.” The organization’s “shout out” for volunteers is intended to help it continue to operate with the support of the community as an integral part of its success. “It’s been ten years and we’re in re-energizing mode,” said Wierzbicki. The shout out brings to mind an announcement about the upcoming tribute for Dianne Wilson, a household name in these parts. Wilson will complete 32 years of public service as Fort Bend County Clerk, and local voters will be selecting her replacement this November. Organizers are inviting the public to attend and pay tribute to her on October 7, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., at “The Lodge” at the Safari Texas Ranch. Although the event is “free” to the public, there is a requested donation to be made at the door which will benefit either the Fort Bend Boys Choir or Texana (MHMR) Center.
