Would you like to take part in a fun and creative way to increase awareness about food insecurity in our local community and share your joy with the Star of Hope? Join us on Thursday, September 12th at 5:00 PM for an informative presentation in the McGovern Theater.
The Health Museum and Matthew’s Birthday Wish are excited to announce that we are joining forces to help the Star of Hope feed Houston’s hungry and homeless with the Crates of Caring Contest. You can support our efforts by decorating a wooden crate according to one of the following themes and fill it with non-perishable food!
