CoolxDad’s Annual Gift-Giving Project Continues to Spread Warmth
CoolxDad, a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering fathers of color, is excited to announce the return of its annual holiday gift drive, the Color Box initiative. Taking place from November 1 to 30, 2023, Color Box encourages businesses and individuals across the Houston area to join hands in making the holiday season brighter for underserved families impacted by SEARCH Homeless Services.
CoolxDad is committed to its mission of combating fatherlessness in American households by creating opportunities for men of color to engage with their families and communities. Color Box is a centerpiece of the organization’s efforts and stands as a beacon of positivity and community support.
CoolxDad invites generous contributions of new children’s toys, electronics, and new clothing of all sizes, with a value of up to $75.00. The collected items will be distributed as Christmas presents to the kids/families in need. A range of businesses will serve as drop-off locations for donations, and supporting companies include: Mo’Better Brews, Art is Bond, OST Liquor, WONDERLIKEWANDER, Ellio Fine Art, Genara, The Argyle League, OaksPoint Pediatric Dentistry, and SANMAN Studios.
As part of this year’s initiative, Color Box will host a series of community-focused events. These activities commenced with a vibrant kickoff ceremony November 1, 2023 at ART IS BOND, located at 4411 Montrose Blvd, Suite E Houston, TX 77006. Janice Bond, founder of Art Is Bond Gallery, served as the event host. This kickoff celebration united and inspired community members, marking the start of this compassionate journey.
On December 03, 2023, the CoolxDad team in partnership with Cricket Wireless will offer FREE FAMILY PORTRAITS for the community. Families from the Houston and surrounding areas are invited to create memories with us as we continue to celebrate the holiday season. Family Portrait Day will be held at SANMAN Studios, 1109 Providence St, Houston, TX 77002, from 1pm-5pm.
On December 6, 2023, from 6 to 9 p.m., CoolxDad members will partner with Houston Dynamo to host a gift-wrapping event. This event aims to prepare the collected presents for distribution for the families impacted by SEARCH Homeless Services, spreading holiday cheer and fostering a sense of togetherness.
Join the CoolxDad team in making this holiday season unforgettable for deserving families in Houston.
