Market Street’s Change for Charity donates over $3K to Family Promise
THE WOODLANDS, TX – As part of its Change for Charity initiative, Market Street recently donated more than $3,000 to Family Promise of Montgomery County, Inc. The funds were raised by Market Street patrons and The Woodlands Car Club event attendees during the fourth quarter of 2017 and will assist the organization, which serves homeless families with children, by uniting faith communities in a cooperative effort to provide shelter, meals, transportation, and compassionate assistance leading to independence.
Since the program’s inception, Market Street patrons and The Woodlands Car Club event attendees have raised more than $150,000 for local charities. Four Montgomery County organizations are selected each year.
The Woodlands Car Club also generously raises money at their events, held the first Sunday of each month. Their contributions, coupled with the amount donated to Market Street’s 68 parking meters make up the total amount given to a selected charity each quarter.
