Load of Chicken Tendered by Kingwood Rotary

(l to r) Kingwood Rotary Club Past Presidents Tommie and Charlie Buscemi;
Sandi NIzzi, Kingwood Rotary Club President; Morris Barnett, Mission Northeast volunteer;
Carolyn Wise, Kingwood Rotary Club PR chair; and Christine Carr, NCL Kingwood volunteer.

Kingwood Rotarians and community volunteers helped feed those in need in our community by purchasing, donating and delivering 400 pounds of chicken leg quarters to Mission Northeast in New Caney. This is just one of the many ways that Kingwood Rotarians help make a difference in the lives of others as well as their own. Visit www.kwrotary.org to learn more or visit the weekly club meeting which is at Skeeter's Mesquite Grill in Kingwood each Thursday, 6:15-7:30 pm. They're a "family friendly" club -- bring them with you!

Mission Northeast and CIA Team up for Good

Mission Northeast would like to thank members of CIA (Christians in Action) from Christ the King Lutheran Church for taking the time to show their love and care for someone in great need.

In May, one of our clients, age 81, sustained fire damage to her trailer. She was lucky to get out alive. But the trailer needed extensive repair to make it livable.

Three wonderful men from CIA, Mark Lexow, Butch Hagey, and Rob Sorge moved quickly to visit with this lady, assess her needs, and locate the necessary materials for the repairs. Through funding from our Safe Haven Program, this CIA team quickly went to work to make "Miss Helen's" home safe and comfortable to live in again.

Back in the Saddle

Last week, Charles, a Mission client, had his bicycle stolen. That was his only means of transportation, and this setback came in the same week as an eviction notice. Some generous, caring Mission volunteers took up a collection to replace his bike, and funds from our Safe Haven Program kept Charles and his family in their trailer home. God is good!!

Tribute to Mission NE volunteer Robert Austin

In May of this year Mission Northeast said good-bye to a good friend, Robert Austin. Robert was our pick up and delivery driver; our "Mr. Fix it", and always had a joke, a story, or some way to bring kindness and cheer into our lives. We were honored to hold Robert's memorial service in our chapel where dozens of family, friends, and fellow volunteers gathered to celebrate his life. A note from Robert's wife Evelyn summed up Robert's years with us:
"Robert was truly blessed to have such a caring second family at Mission Northeast. He was so happy working with each of you. Each morning at 11 am, out the door he went to his second home. Thanks to all of you. Love, Evelyn"
