Planting Seeds in 2018

On Friday, April 27 we celebrated our 5th annual Plant A Seed fundraiser, presented by Friends of Bridging For Tomorrow. It was a record-setting event for Bridging For Tomorrow, raising over $170,000. This money will fund programs that provide educational support, hunger alleviation, health services, and promote the overall well-being of individuals and families in Northwest Houston.

A large chunk of the funds raised came from auctioning off 13 art pieces that were created by students at Klein Forest High School as well as a piece that was created at the event by their art teacher, Laura Causer. Our partnership with the art program dates back to 2016. Year after year, we continue to be impressed by the students’ talent and their generosity. This is just one example of the powerful impact that partnerships between schools, organizations, businesses, and churches in our community can have.

It truly was a special night in which members of the community gathered together to celebrate all that God is doing through Bridging For Tomorrow, and to share our mission and vision with new people. Our staff is incredibly grateful for the generosity of our donors. We can’t wait to see the fruit that will come from the seeds that were planted this year. In addition to the money raised, we also grew our team of Community Investors who ensure the sustainability of our programs through a monthly gift. We are thankful for the support we received and our neighbors' commitment to make our community stronger. 

Though I do not believe that a plant will spring up where no seed has been planted, I have great faith in a seed. Convince me that you have a seed there, and I am prepared to expect wonders.
— Henry David Thoreau
