Newspring Fundraising Luncheon

We are very excited to welcome Jim “Mattress Mac” McIngvale as our keynote speaker with Bill Stubbs serving as host at the Houston Racquet Club. We hope our friends will participate and help us reach our goal of raising $50,000 after expenses for Newspring.

Please consider donating $1000 to sponsor a table and invite others who will support the Newspring mission and accomplishments through additional donations. If you would like to sponsor a table, please contact Mary Kay Coleman at marykaycoleman@comcast.net.

volunteers
Volunteers are vitally important individuals who follow Christ’s call and help Newspring create pathways for others.

  • Newspring needs a person with graphics experience to help produce our monthly newsletter
  • Visual arts program needs volunteers with or without artistic experience
  • General office administration
  • Spanish speaking business mentors

Newspring always appreciates financial donations from those who are not able to volunteer their time.
