Texan Bank Partners with Kidz Harbor

The employees at Texan Bank are all about Servant Leadership. We take great joy in serving each other, our customers and our local communities. Since its inception in 2011, Texan Bank has been generously supporting our local charitable organizations, schools, sports teams, and churches. In 2016, we created Texans Serving Texans, which is a team of our employees whose mission is to determine the needs of our communities and serve them with our time, labor, and money.

ALL of our employees have SERVING hearts, so it is no wonder that we chose to collaborate with Kidz Harbor as our primary focus for our charitable service!  Kidz Harbor is a group foster home whose mission is to house and help the abused and abandoned children of Texas.  The home is located in Liverpool, Texas and has short-term and long-term care, with some residents staying for only a few months to others staying several years.  Kidz Harbor provides a safe harbor for these children while attending to their medical and physiological needs. 

As part of Texan Bank’s partnership with Kidz Harbor, the Texans Serving Texans team is planning two donation drives a year depending on the needs of the children at that time. Also, we are organizing two fun events JUST for the children each year, one in the summer and one after Christmas.

“More Than Just A Backpack” Drive for Kidz Harbor

Our Texan Bank Texans Serving Texans Team is organizing a More Than Just a Backpack” backpack and school supply drive for the children at Kidz Harbor.

Why do we call it “More Than Just a Backpack”? The obvious answer is that the children need school supplies, too! However, what we are referring to is that these children have experienced so much in their short lives; the last thing they need to worry about is being fully prepared for school. In addition, whether the children stay at Kidz Harbor or move on to their next destination, they can take that backpack with them as their very own.

List of Supplies Needed by August 10th or September 29th:

Backpacks – All sizes Plastic folders with pockets and brads (all colors)
Colored construction paper Permanent markers
Dividers Flash drives
1" & 2” binders Ear buds
Markers Tissue boxes
Wide ruled paper Hand sanitizer
Wide ruled composition books Combination locks
Pencil boxes

Please drop off your donations at any of our four Texan Bank locations in Houston, Clear Lake, Friendswood, and Sugar Land.

The Texans Serving Texans team will make the first delivery of donations to Kidz Harbor in August before school starts. The second delivery will be in the beginning of October to take advantage of the sales on backpacks and school supplies!

Individuals and companies that donate will be listed in the donors section below. If you have questions regarding this drive, please contact Kristi Koncaba at 281-276-1800 or kristi.koncaba@texanbank.com.
