Newberry Cares + Gallant Gives – Blood Drive

Newberry Cares + Gallant Gives – Blood Drive

When our Team went on the hunt for our next Newberry Cares event, Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center stole our hearts with their amazing passion for providing a safe supply of blood to the community.  We partnered with our neighbors, Gallant Builders , to host a blood drive in Portwest parking lot. Katie Nippress, our coordinator at Gulf Coast, was a huge help in planning the event- she truly loves what she does! The world needs more Katie Nippress in it!

After an afternoon of donations from the Newberry office, the Gallant team, our amazing vendors and family members… we contributed 25 pints of blood and over $300 in cash to Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center. It is a very small gesture to the massive 1,000 pints of blood they need daily to meet the community’s need. We hope you will take a moment to visit their website and maybe schedule time to donate!

Newberry Cares – Dec My Room

Newberry Cares – Dec My Room

As a design firm, we are constantly designing spaces for individuals- so when we were approached by Dec My Room to assist in decorating rooms for long-term stay patients at Texas Children’s Hospital… we were thrilled to help! This was our first year to partner with Dec My Room and WOW, this organization is beyond amazing! If you are not familiar with them, check them out here!

We were assigned three rooms to decorate. The Newberry Cares Team carefully curated each room to the patient’s specific likes and taste. We had a blast installing all the fun décor and hope our small gesture will leave a joyful and positive impact on the patients and families we had the honor of servicing.

 

Newberry Cares – The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Houston

Newberry Cares – The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Houston

Last December, The Newberry Cares Team was honored to participate in the We Care event- which fosters children from The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Houston. Everyone enjoys the festive time between Thanksgiving and Christmas; however, we often take for granted the opportunity to be able to participate in holiday crafts. Newberry Architecture gathered together, with our local peers, and created a safe environment where these children can celebrate the season by creating personally crafted gifts for their loved ones or even for themselves, and have a few hours of holiday cheer! Check out the scrumptious hot coco ornament our team helped the kids put together.

Newberry Cares – Toy Drive

Newberry Cares – Toy Drive

While every child deserves to feel the joy of receiving a new toy on Christmas morning, so many disadvantaged families do not have the opportunity to provide gifts for their children. Partnering with Toys for Tots was an amazing opportunity for the Newberry Cares Team to collect new, unwrapped toys for the organization. Within two weeks, our team was able to meet our goal of filling the Toys for Tots box! Thank you to the Toys for Tots organization and Marine Corps for creating the opportunity for the Newberry Cares Team, and our generous donors, to give back to our local community of children!
