HUMANITARIAN PEANUT BUTTER CANNING PROJECT AND CYPRESS WOODLANDS-JUNIOR FORUM

Ten members of The Cypress-Woodlands Junior Forum (CWJF) recently volunteered with the Humanitarian Peanut Butter Canning Project at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints cannery, which has a 10-year history of providing peanut butter to the Houston Food Bank. The peanuts are grown on the church farm in Pearsall, near San Antonio. The Canning Project helps supply food to more than 46 million people through 60,000 food pantries and meal programs. The Project’s goal this year is to offer between 950,000 and one million jars.

The CWJF members enjoy being a part of the Canning Project, and the four-hour shifts fill up fast! There’s a bond created among the volunteers as the assembly line is systematic and orderly, and all hands have a position to help achieve the goal for the day.

CWJF is nonprofit assistance organization and a recognized chapter of Junior Forum, Inc. For more information on joining CWJF or to donate, visit cwjuniorforum.org or call 281-379-1391.

SCHOOL-BASED CLINIC GETS NEW NAME: CY-FAIR COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTER

Under a new name, the Cy-Fair Community Health Center is continuing to provide quality service to students in CFISD with its 10,000-square-foot school-based Federal Qualified Healthcare Clinic.

The clinic, which opened in August and is within walking distance of Cypress Park High School, was formerly called the Good Neighbor Healthcare Center – Cy-Fair. It’s now the sixth clinic under Spring Branch Community Health Center (SBCHC), which has three locations in Spring Branch ISD and two in Katy ISD.

Cy-Fair Community Health Center is equipped to provide family medical and pediatric care, and will soon offer dental care and mental health services.

CEO Marlen Trujillo credits the organization’s continued growth through the support and loyalty of patients and communities.

“We’ve been able to cultivate strong community partnerships, due largely in part to the dedication of a talented and diverse Board of Directors,” she said.

Cy-Fair Community Health Center was approved by the CFISD Board of Trustees in a unanimous vote in 2015, and opened the next year. It will neighbor a multi-campus educational village, with a future elementary school and middle school planned for the property.

A mission-driven nonprofit, SBCHC clinics have staff specifically assigned to facilitate applications for assistance, coordinate referrals to specialty care, and link patients to community resources. Front desk staff members are bilingual in English and Spanish, and providers are trained to meet varying needs of patients.

All SBCHC clinics accept Medicaid, CHIP, Medicare, private insurance and uninsured patients, with financial assistance available for patients who meet eligibility requirements. Open parts of six days a week, SBCHC clinics offer free education programs that are open to the public.

For clinic locations, hours, scheduling and more information, go to sbchc.net or call 713-462-6565. To reach the Health Center, call 713-387-7180.
