Thank You Greater Galveston County, Texas!

Thank you, Galveston County. You did it. Over a handful of days, thousands of volunteers devoted hundreds of thousands of hours to building something amazing: a better life for a truly extraordinary family and community. It’s a testament to what we can do when we work together. And there’s no reason to stop now. Because when you give back, you’re building a better life for you too.
