Build it Forward ACE - Table Building

Printer-friendly versionDownload Project Profile

On November 2nd our Houston office hosted an ACE Build It event.At this event, 12-15 high school students involved in the ACE program and their mentors came together to build picnic tables that were delivered to area charitable organizations. All in all 15 tables were built and $34,000.00 was raised for the ACE Mentorship program. Tables weren't the only thing to come out of this event, students learned skills that can grow with them - for instance using a drill gun and learning how to read blue prints.

Organizations that received a table are:
Art Reach
Avondale House
Covenant House
Foster Family YMCA
Generation One
Good Shepard
Helping a Hero
Houston ISD
Houston Nature Discovery Center
Inspiring Possibilities
Morning Glory Ranch
Ronald McDonald House
Worship Experience
