do good, feel good
KWC’s main activity involves volunteering at many nonprofit organizations. This past year our 140+ members volunteered over 12,850 hours at local charities. Learn more about the local charities we support below.
Adopt An Angel
We provide necessities to students at Humble Elementary School who have been identified by the school nurse as needing assistance. Adopt An Angel is held twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring.
Members help with Patron Counts and FOLK. FOLK, Friends of the Library, Kingwood, sells used books to help support the library at either the little store inside the library or through Amazon.
Local Elementary Schools
We support the efforts of Humble ISD elementary schools in the following ways: teacher assistance projects such as laminating, copying, coloring and assembling books; mentoring elementary students, and support vision and hearing testing.
This project encompasses volunteer activities in support of other local organizations.

This organization is a community coalition supported by donations and Resale Shop proceeds, which provide social services and food to those in need. At Humble Area Assistance Ministries, KWC members volunteer in the Resale Shop, the Food Pantry, Social Services and help with clerical duties. We support the Back to School program and during the holiday season we help bag and distribute food items.

Society of St. Stephen (SOSS)
We volunteer at this social service agency by bagging groceries in the food pantry, distributing clothing to clients and stocking and distributing holiday food bags.
