Fort Bend County Collaborative Information System
Helping Hands is a core member agency in the Fort Bend County Collaborative Information System. We have partnered alongside six other local food pantries and social service agencies. The collaborative includes: Rosenberg-Richmond Helping Hands, Inc., East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry, Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels, Second Mile Mission, Katy Christian Ministries, Fort Bend County Social Services, and Fort Bend County Community Paramedics. As a collaborative, we host several programs together throughout the year including a school supply drive and Christmas program.
During the summer, we have a special program for providing school supplies to children who might otherwise go to school without any. The Fort Bend Collaborative Information System provides a county wide 'Back To School' event each year. Households who have registered receive a new backpack filled with supplies and a new pair of shoes.
The Fort Bend County Collaborative Information System holds an annual 'Santa Claus Is Coming To Fort Bend County' toy drive. In December, households who have registered and meet minimal requirements are invited to select toys for their children. Kids enjoy a day with Santa Claus while parents receive wrapping paper and unwrapped toys for their kids.
