Where else could you bid on such fantastic auction bargains and at the same time know that you are providing help to struggling families.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 9, 2006
Houston Charity Center Auction, dedicated to helping low income families, now provides help to 1,500 plus families per year in Houston. The Auction provides the funds needed to supply emergency food, clothing and household essentials free of charge to families in crisis.
The Auction is easy to locate at 14105 South Post Oak Road in Southwest Houston. The event is held each Thursday at 11 a.m. and is open to the public. Each week features new lots containing cars, boats, furniture, appliances home decor, computers and many other valuable items.
“We love what a good charity auction means to the families in need of assistance,” said co-founder Virginia Bowen. “Where else could you bid on such fantastic auction bargains and at the same time know that you are providing help to struggling families.”
At The Houston Charity Center Auction, bidders can be assured that their purchases help the center provide food, clothing and household essentials to families in need. The charitable assistance programs are made possible by generous donations of non-perishable food, clothing, furniture, appliances, left-over garage sale lots, home-decor items, etc.- collected daily by the center's prompt, scheduled donation pickup service.
“By working together to serve those in need, we can achieve the extraordinary,” Bowen said. “No charity can respond to every family in need in a city as large as Houston. We encourage our auction paticipants to support other non-profits as well, such as Goodwill, Purple Heart and the Salvation Army. You can show your support for this charity effort by attending an auction, by monetary contributions and / or by donating clothes, furniture, appliances, food, utility items or vehicles.”
The center welcomes referrals from non-profits in greater Houston. When a charity becomes aware of a family in crisis, the organization can send the family to the Houston Charity Center for help. The Church or non-profit group should provide the family with a letter of referral on the organization's letterhead. Referrals must include the non-profit's contact information, type of assistance needed and a description of the crisis situation.
“We are committed meeting the needs of families trying to make ends meet,” said Bowen. “When you shop or donate with our organization, you play a vital role in restoring the hope and dignity to families in difficult circumstances.”
