Clear Lake Sisters Find Fun Way To Help The Homeless | Clear Lake , Texas | The Bay Area Citizen
When Faith and Grace Dickey decided they wanted to help the homeless, they really meant it. “They didn’t go small,” said Shirley Dickey, mom to the 11-year-old twins. “They went huge.”
The sisters, who are in sixth grade at Clear Lake Intermediate and attend Clear Lake Presbyterian Church, staged a carnival Saturday, March 17, in the Meadowgreen subdivision to raise money for two Houston organizations that help the homeless.
Family Promise of Clear Creek helps homeless families in southeast Harris, north Galveston and Brazoria counties while keeping them together, and Covenant House Texas helps adolescents in crisis and keeps them off the streets. Faith Dickey said the goal of the event was to raise $2,000 as families enjoyed moonwalks, Nerf gun fights, face painting, cookie decorating and plenty of other games.
Asked why they decided to take up this cause, Faith said the reason is simple. “We’re Christians, and God tells us to help people,” she said.
