The Beginning of Their Summer of Hope!

Key Energy Services employee with a child at Star of HopeMany kids have a nostalgic idea of summer and look forward to sun-kissed skin all school-year long.  One of the only appealing ideas about summer for a homeless child is no more school work, but in no way does that outweigh the cons: nonstop hunger, sweating, thirst, loneliness and often neglect.

Here in Houston, the Independent School District found 10,000+ homeless children during the past School year.  My question is where are those kids now, during the already brutal summer?

Each time another child enters Star of Hope, I with Star of Hope, am celebrating because we now know 1 more is provided for.  In fact because of great companies like Key Energy Services, Star of Hope is able to provide the kids here with a summer filled with water, sun, plenty of food and lots of fun! 

Recently, Key Energy Services offered a “Pirate Splash” to kick off our Summer of Hope! It included: pirates with monkeys, huge water slides, lots of kiddy pools, cotton candy and many happy soaked kiddos!  It really was the beginning of, for many kids, their Summer of Hope!
