Calvary Chapel: Debi Matthews has been such a blessing to our program this year at Brookside. At the beginning of the school year she was eager to meet and find out what our needs were and how Calvary could partner with us. After brainstorming on how Calvary Houston could support CIS at Brookside she ran with it. She has served as an excellent liaison between Brookside and the church.
Debi coordinated the hoodie drive for our students and delivered 60 brand new hoodies for students who didn’t have a jacket for the winter. She also provided 300 snacks/drinks for our Backpack Buddy Club students to have over Spring Break. Whenever I have an emergency need for school supplies or clothing for a student Debi goes right out and buys it and then delivers it to the school. She also helped one of our students who needed funds for an expensive prescription medication. Most recently Debi has spread the word that we need tutors/mentors and we’ve had three church members start volunteering!
We are so thankful for Debi and our partnership with Calvary and look forward to an ongoing relationship.
