Families Helping Families in Houston

A Texas native has helped put food on the table for needy families in Fort Bend County and the Houston area for the past 7 years. He started with just six families in 2013, and has so far, provided meals for nearly 500 families for Thanksgiving. In fact, he doesn’t only provide a Thanksgiving meal, but enough food for an entire week. How does he do it?

Quincy Collins gets his neighbors to volunteer, and enlists law enforcement from the Fort Bend Independent School District, to ensure the boxes are safely delivered, reaches out to local business owners, friends, and families for donations— but he needs more help.

This year, he and his non-profit organization, Families Helping Families in Houston is increasing this years goal by 50%—making a big promise to feed 300 families! As a kid, Quincy would help prepare meals with his grandparents to be delivered to homeless people living on the streets of downtown Houston. Although his grandparents are no longer with us, he does this in their legacy.”

Many of us are so fortunate, that we don’t have to worry about what we’re going to eat on Thanksgiving, but there are people out there, just 2 miles from us, that aren’t even sure if they’ll have a meal that day. We need to give back to our community,” said Collins, the founder of Families Helping Families.

In order to foot the grocery bill for 300 families, Collins needs to raise $45,000. Please help provide food for families in need this Thanksgiving.
