HURRICANE HARVEY RELIEF - GRANDE CARES
While we have watched the devastation left by Hurricane Harvey in Texas, many of us have asked, “How can I help?” If you are interested in donating to the relief efforts in Texas, our Grande colleagues have created a foundation to help Texas communities who have suffered such destructive events. Grande Cares is on the ground and able to get monetary donations into the hands of those most in need. They will focus their attention on the smaller communities who have not seen the relief efforts like Houston, where most of the attention is focused.
If you would like to contribute, please make your check payable to Grande Cares. (please note: "Hurricane Harvey Relief” on the check) Or if you prefer you can send your donations directly to Grande Cares at the following address:
Grande Cares c/o Julie Clayton 401 Carlson Circle San Marcos, TX. 78666
Donations to Grande Cares are tax deductible. If you are sending your donation directly to Grande Cares and are requesting receipt for the donation please make sure to include a return address so Grande Cares can send you the receipt. You can be sure that any donation you make will be much appreciated and given directly to those who need your help. Thank you!

Athlete Guild 5K Race
Saturday, May 6th - Every day, across our country 1,900 children are victims of abuse and neglect. Everyday four children die from abuse. Boys Town Texas is a beacon of hope, healing and help and with this race we will raise awareness as well as much needed funds to continue saving children and healing families in the San Antonio community. The Race for the Prevention of Child Abuse creates awareness for the need of more foster parents who will open their heart and home to the "forgotten" children. The Race comes at the end of Child Abuse Prevention Month and will kick off Foster Parent Appreciation Month. Grande Communications is so proud to be an advocate and sponsor for such an urgent cause.
