Whether we’re rooting on the Astros, taking our boys to the zoo, or eating out at one of our favorite restaurants, one thing is for sure: We LOVE all things Houston! At The Amish Craftsman, we’re honored to be able to give back to the community we’re lucky to call home. Years ago, we began collaborating with some amazing local charities to help our customers’ purchases make a positive impact in our community. What once began as a seasonal campaign has turned into something that we do year round and has resulted in tens of thousands of dollars in donations to causes near and dear to our hearts.
Join us this month in supporting one of our favorite Houston non-profit organizations, Books Between Kids.
Did you know that about 85% of the elementary-aged children in Houston’s Independent School District live at or below the poverty line? For those children, books are a luxury they simply can’t afford. Unfortunately, research has shown that children growing up in homes without books are less likely to complete a basic education than their peers who do have books available at home.
Books Between Kids is a non-profit organization serving Houston’s at-risk children by providing them with books to build their own home libraries. You can help by donating new or gently used books during our in-store book drive. Check out Books Between Kids book guidelines to find out what types of books they can use in their program.
When you donate $100 to one of our participating charities, you save 20% with us. We’re taking this commitment seriously and want to continue to improve our impact and the lives of all those around us.
