Educational opportunities enrich children's lives and benefit everyone in our Southeast Texas communities. We believe in the power of education - it's rooted in our values and at the heart of our existence. We're proud of our local schools and thrilled to present this opportunity to all members. There's no better feeling than making a difference in your community. To show our appreciation and support of our local schools, we have donated over $150,000 to date and we are proud to say that We're Paying It Forward!
