The District With A Big Heart

27 Mar, 2019

We are all about community and community is about supporting each other. Memorial District organizations routinely sponsor events and activities that inspire and bring out the best in us.

Girlstart's STEM Extravaganza was held at CityCentre Plaza recently and families learned all about STEM through active hands-on participation in STEM activities, all at no cost.

For World Down Syndrome Awareness Day, Ozark actor and Houston native Evan Vourazeris gave a talk at CityCentre about how to overcome challenges and bullying to follow your dream.

Earlier this month, over at Memorial City Mall, Eddie’s Walk of Life was held in honor of retired marine veteran Eddie deRoulet. Eddie is a stroke survivor who used fitness to recover and now encourages others to follow his footsteps.

“I see so many people who say, ‘I’ve had a stroke, and my life is over,’ deRoulet said. “I say, No, it has changed my life, but it hasn’t taken away from it.”

For the pet-lovers in the District, Memorial City Mall hosted a pet adoption event to help rescued pets from various Houston-area shelters find their fur-ever homes. And April 6 is the 10th Annual Doggie Party on the Plaza at CityCentre. The event benefits Houston area rescues.

If you are interested in volunteering, Memorial Hermann has many opportunities to help those in need.

To help entrepreneurs in the area, local businesses regularly sponsor the PopUp Business School, a free workshop for those who are thinking about starting their own business or just want guidance on how to grow their newly started business.

From health initiatives to inspirational events, from pets to new business owners, Memorial District is always finding ways to give back to the community that supports them. When our community thrives, so do we and we love supporting programs and organizations that empower us all. Check our calendar often for events that interest you.
