The Woodlands Celebration of Excellence Gala Helps Families in Need Through Interfaith of The Woodlands

by The Woodlands

It’s time to honor the local heroes in The Woodlands who have helped shape our community at
The Woodlands Celebration of Excellence Gala Honoring Hometown Heroes
Saturday, October 7
The Woodlands Marriott Hotel

Gala Honorary Chairs, Brynn Ballard Huntsman and Peter Huntsman, along with Presenting Sponsor, Huntsman Corporation, will match your contribution dollar for dollar raised, up to $250,000, between now and the Gala on October 7. The contributions will benefit South Montgomery County families in crisis, affected by the storms of Hurricane Harvey.

The Celebration of Excellence Gala benefits Interfaith of The Woodlands which in itself is one of our community’s heroes.  We spoke with Missy Herndon, President & CEO of Interfaith about the organization.

The Woodlands: How has Interfaith of The Woodlands helped with the recent flood relief efforts in our community?
Herndon:  Interfaith’ s mission during this disaster is to meet the basic needs of families in South Montgomery County affected by Hurricane Harvey.  Additionally, Interfaith is the Donation Manager of Montgomery County, collecting and distributing the wonderful donations of supplies and basic need items, initially, to the shelters and then moving forward to the families that need it the most. Interfaith’s long term plans will support our community of South Montgomery County as we rebuild and transition families back to self-sufficiency.

The Woodlands: What does the Celebration of Excellence Gala mean for Interfaith?
Herndon:  All proceeds from The Celebration of Excellence Gala will help families and individuals through every day and major crisis, meeting basic needs of shelter, transportation, food, water, clothing and financial assistance for rent, mortgage and utilities.
