Spotlight: The Children’s Shelter

Ask any Texas Cavalier and he’ll tell you: we have a big soft spot for The Children’s Shelter. How could we not love them and their selfless mission? They open their hospitable doors to children in our community from infancy to age 16 – kids who’ve been abused, neglected, abandoned, and removed from their homes. They give them love, healthy food, education, nurturing, security, and safety. They give them hope.

I can think of 1.5 million reasons why Fiesta was so great this year! Because of the generosity of Cavaliers and friends, King Antonio Roger Hill III handed out $1.5M to 67 carefully vetted charities. Many people made this possible, but the big accolades belong to Scott Christy, our 2019 River Parade Marshal. His personal efforts and those of his River Parade team to secure sponsorships, matching funds, and outright donations were extraordinary.

They serve more than 150 kids each year, from sixth grade up. In the summer, they take groups of older kids on trips around the U.S. to broaden their knowledge and cultural awareness.

Your Texas Cavaliers Charitable Foundation works throughout the year overseeing the funds you have entrusted to the TCCF for the betterment of children in our community. Trustees also investigate the 60 or more organizations that apply for grants and make site visits to see firsthand the impact of our grants. Our visits sometimes result in unexpected benefits. Recently, Trustee Mark Krenger and Shannon Nisbet visited the Ricardo Salinas Dental Clinic, which provides care for underserved children. Mark asked, “What do you need besides money?” The staff outlined various renovation needs, and Mark and Shannon left there determined to help. Mark contacted Texas Cavalier friends, and at no cost to the clinic, got donations of materials and labor for new countertops, wall and ceiling repairs, lighting improvements, and more. Just one of many examples of Cavaliers in action.
