“I volunteer in the community to nurture and care for this special place we call home… Cypress. I believe we are all here in this life to make the world a better place having been here. It is our responsibility to give back to the community in which we live, work and play. The roots I dreamed of having as a child are right here. My children have grown up with a foundation of community support and love. They have roots here. And, hopefully, they will create generations of roots in Cypress with their own children. I volunteer for them… the now and the future hearts of Cypress.”
“I volunteer because I care about community and what volunteering models for my children. “Giving Back” means starting right on your own street or in your own neighborhood. Bloom where you are planted. You will see for yourself how even small efforts make a big difference in your neighbor’s lives. If you involve your family, your children will learn gratitude and empathy from volunteering and from watching you. Doing something for the community you live in with your family can have a ripple effect. Children who volunteer with their parents are more likely to become adults who volunteer.”
“I volunteer because I feel it is my duty to contribute to my community. From the moment we moved to northwest Houston, we immediately began to give back – in our schools, in our church, and in our community at large. We have been very plugged into the area and feel like the area is special because so many people feel the same way.”
“I volunteered in the school system because I wanted to be close to my children growing up and I wanted give back to the community to help where needed. I would leave work during a long lunch break to help with school functions. I wanted my children to know that I supported them in their education. I volunteered via the church activities to help create functions and activities for the community. I want to help grow and improve this community so volunteering is my way to contribute. I created a small business in Cypress to help educate and teach our children the importance of etiquette. I have always believed that it takes a village to raise a child and we all can help teach our children.”
“I volunteer, because I can and it’s contagious. My family and Cypress have allowed me the lifestyle where I have the means and time to give back to the community. Volunteering also connects me with the members of the community –-people like me and many diverse others who I meet along the way and appreciate. It also gives me a creative outlet.
