With the Holidays fast approaching, we have 2 special requests:

1. During this time, Local stores, offer (with purchase) turkeys, either free or at a reduced price. Please think about EAC's families that won't have a turkey for the holidays.

2. From December 16-20 families with children who come for clothing and groceries, are hopeful that we will have Christmas toys available for their children. As you are shopping for your family, please grab a toy or game for a child in need.
We are open for drop off between 9 and 1 on weekdays.

Thank you Regis School

Every year, on the days leading up to Thanksgiving break, our 3rd-8th grade students head out into the greater Houston community to complete social awareness projects supporting those in need. Yesterday, 3rd grade visited the residents of @ [980491402009267:274:Brookdale Memorial Oaks], 7th grade assisted the CCSC - Christian Community Service Center at St. Philip Presbyterian Church by sorting food and presents, and 4th grade packed lunches for the homeless at Emergency Aid Coalition. These trips have a lasting impact on the boys, and they look forward to these opportunities to serve each year! #regisschool #wearesacredheart #goalstrong #goal3inaction

Choral Scholars Recital Benefits Emergency Aid Coalition
The St. Paul’s Choral Scholars will present a benefit recital Sunday, November 17, on behalf of the Emergency Aid Coalition (EAC).
In the St. Paul’s United Methodist Church Sanctuary at 4 p.m., the recital will feature soloists singing works ranging from classical liturgical music to contemporary show tunes. A dessert reception will follow.
Admission is free of charge with donations accepted for the EAC.
“Choral Scholars would like to give back to the St. Paul’s community,” said Eddie Quaid, the director of this choir comprised of auditioned high-school vocalists.
“The wonderful idea of presenting the initial recital to benefit the EAC came from three-year Choral Scholar Emily Wolfe, who now is a senior vocal performance major at Baylor University. Her original goal remains for today’s Choral Scholars, which is to present an entertaining program that will help in this worthwhile venture.”
Created in 2005 to give advanced high school singers an opportunity to lead worship services by presenting the finest in sacred choral music, “this choir is unique to our church,” said Quaid. Selected after a rigorous audition process, this year’s choir members represent 11 schools in nine school districts.
The 2013 Choral Scholars were a demonstration choir at the American Choral Directors Association national conference for a presentation by Quaid and Mark Edenfield, then-St. Paul’s Choirmaster/Organist.
Founded in 1983, the EAC is an interfaith organization that collaborates to provide temporary assistance in the form of food, clothing and other basic needs, with an emphasis on serving the working poor. Each year the EAC helps more than 50,000 individuals living on the edge of poverty. Support from member congregations, dedicated volunteers, fundraisers, and other benefactors allows the EAC to continue serving those in need in Houston’s inner city and Midtown neighborhoods.
Located at 5501 Main at Binz/Bissonnet in the Museum District, St. Paul’s United Methodist Church is a cathedral for Houston that embodies its diversity inspires faith and leads change for the common good of all peoples and communities. Free parking is available across Fannin Street from the church, and the Museum District MetroRail stops are within walking distance of the church.

Feel Good Friday Story!

Fredrick, a past client of the EAC for clothing and food, came in today and asked to speak with the Executive Director. He said he used to come for services in the past when he was "down on his luck", but now has a good job in the medical center and wanted to give back. Fredrick donated $1000 (in cash) of his hard earned money to pay it forward. This is what the EAC is all about! We are blessed to have been able to help someone who then turned around to help so many others in need!
