Mission BE A Resource (BEAR) is a community service club founded by a group of like-minded youngsters to help children in need. Their primary goal is to spread awareness about Rainbow Rooms and support underprivileged children in their community through donations and volunteering.
They were selected to receive a 2021 Hershey Heartwarming Young Heroes Grant by Youth Service America for the School Supplies for Shared Dreams service initiative!
On Saturday the 24th of April, for Global Youth Service Day, they organized a school supply drive at the Alcorn Oaks Pool with permission from the First Colony Community Association. HEB, CVS, Books Between Kids & Houston Food Bank Teachers Aid supported their mission. The kids wore blue and the ground was decorated with blue pinwheels supplied by Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office in honor of child abuse prevention month.
Maya & Arjun Govindaraj, Lakshanya & Ved Solipuram, Ronit Maganti, Aarini Mehta, Arisha & Ishaal Merchant, Advaith Govind and Sriram Susarla were able to collect a large quantity of school supplies to be donated to FBISD Shared Dreams with the generosity and help of friends and neighbors from in and around Sugar Land.
