WHILE MANY HOUSTONIANS — and their pipes— have recovered from last month's historic freeze, still others are without water, and organizations like the Houston Food Bank are still recovering and replenishing their inventory.
Restaurants and other local businesses are thinking of creative ways to help. Compass Real Estate and Moeller's Bakery have teamed up for the Cookies for a Cause initiative throughout March. Purchase adorably delicious blue heart-shaped cookies from the famous, 91-year-old Bellaire bakery, and $1 from every dozen sold goes to the Houston Food Bank. The goal is to raise $50,000, and nearly $20,000 has already been generated. Additional donations can be made here.
This fundraiser follows Compass' support of Feed the Front Line last year at the onset of Covid. Agents raised $40,000 to provide meals for healthcare and essential workers, and blue ribbons were tied on trees to encourage Houstonians throughout the trying time.
