Upcoming Local Events

Carrie's Heart has some fun events planned for the new school year!

Coffee Talk: Coffee Talk will resume beginning this Saturday, September 8th at Dunn Bros. Coffee in Katy at 9:00 a.m.. See the attached flyer for details (see website for flyers - on Upcoming Events page) Moms...we hope to see you all there on Saturday! With all the preparations for getting the kids back to school we know that you can use a break for yourself! Let us treat you to a cup of coffee and some girl talk!

School Supplies Drive: Our annual school supplies drive has begun! Please throw some extra school supplies into your basket over the next few weeks! The schools in the Yucatan are in need of all types of school supplies for children in early childhood up to secondary programs. Please consider the weight of supplies general we do not need paper products (notebooks, notebook paper etc.) other than colored construction paper and art paper. Jumbo crayons, construction paper, glue, children's scissors...are all favorites. Arts & crafts supplies like paint, glitter, sequins are needed for our holiday letters to Santa project. For a detailed list of needs see the needs list at

All donated supplies can be brought to the Burgers for Books event. If you are unable to make the event contact Carrie at for arrangements for donation drop off / pick up.

Burgers for Books: Our second annual Burgers for Books event will take place on Tuesday, September 25th from 5 - 8 p.m. Mark your calendars & plan to have dinner out that evening. We set the time from 5 - 8 hoping that with all the busy weekday schedules you can plan either a late or early dinner with Carrie's Heart. If you have not been able to make it out to a Carrie's Heart social activity...this is a great one to come to. If you are a regular please extend an invitation to a new family that you may know. We will have information set up about Carrie's Heart and our activities calendar to be handed out. Help spread the word!!! A flyer with details about the event and the Fuddruckers Admission Tickets that must be brought to the event are attached. (see website for flyers on Upcoming Events page)

Local Events Sponsors: Individual & corporate sponsors are needed to help underwrite the cost of hosting our local events. This is a great opportunity for those who like to support their local community. If you or someone you know may be interested in helping Carrie's Heart in this way please contact Paige Whitten at

Volunteer Opportunities: Local events provide opportunities for students and adults to give of their time and self to others. Students can earn community service hours by volunteering their time at Carrie's Heart events. Adult volunteers are also needed. Have skills, an area of expertise, or a kind heart that you would like to share with Carrie's Heart? Contact Carrie at

I look forward to seeing everyone this fall!
