About Houstonia Helps

We at Houstonia magazine recognize that the greater Houston has many amazing charitable organizations that need our help. It is our mission to respond to the ever-evolving needs of our city by continually assessing what local relief organizations and shelters require and collecting donations to support them.

Current Donation Needs- Book Drive

At Houstonia magazine, local philanthropy and city-wide literacy are at the core of our values. In the spirit of making Houston a better city for all, we are giving back to our community with a book drive. This year’s drive benefits the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation. Donate a book in new or gently used condition August 1–31 at the Houstonia Heights office, and help us support the foundation’s mission of improving the quality of life for Houstonians of all ages through the power of literacy.

The mission of the Foundation is to improve the quality of life for Houstonians of all ages through the power of literacy—the ability to read, write, speak clearly, and think critically.

INCREASE AWARENESS: Serve as a champion for the literacy cause in Houston by uniting literacy organizations around common messages and consistent data and providing timely and relevant information to the community.

MOBILIZE VOLUNTEERS: Expand the capacity of school districts, libraries, and nonprofit literacy service providers across Houston to boost literacy rates through the use of volunteers who give of their time and talent.

CONTRIBUTE RESEARCH AND INNOVATION: Spawn innovation and issue literacy-focused publications on pertinent topics that inform constituents of effective strategies and tools to increase literacy skill development and
achievement levels.

INVEST IN COMMUNITY IMPACT: Provide financial and other resources in support of neighborhood-based collective impact efforts that bring together cross-stakeholders focused on improving literacy rates and breaking the cycle of poverty.
