When: Saturday, August 10; 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
Where: Emerson Sloan (both locations), 2438 Rice Blvd. and 1319 S. Voss
What: Taking full advantage of the bump in business over Tax-Free Weekend, this local party store with Rice Village and Tanglewood locations is hosting a fundraiser for the Houston Food Bank’s Backpack Buddy Program. Ten percent of the day’s proceeds at both shops will go toward the program, which helps fight childhood hunger—of which one in four southeast Texas children are at risk—by providing healthy meals for kids to take home on weekends and during breaks, when they’re unable to access the breakfast and lunch they often rely on at school.
