Loaves and Fishes

On Tuesday April 12 I attended the Loaves and Fishes 10th Annual luncheon and style show fundraiser. This organization provides not only for the homeless in our community, but for people who are food insecure- homes where there is not enough food for a family.

Fill the Shelter fundraiser for Valley Haven

Last night was the Fill the Shelter fundraiser for Valley Haven. This new shelter is for children in the Department of Family & Protective services system (also known as CPS) who need a safe environment. Many children are sent out of the RGV because we didn’t have an Emergency children’s shelter in the Valley.

New Park in La Feria

Yesterday morning there was a ribbon cutting for the new park in La Feria. It was designed with so much thought for our youth- it includes a basketball court, soccer area, volleyball area and traditional swings and jungle gyms. I can’t wait to bring my kids to enjoy this beautiful park. ‪#‎TeamSheila‬‪#‎VoteSheila‬

La Joya Graduate From First Offender Program

This type of program is a great way to get our youth back on track. We don’t need children becoming part of the criminal justice system- we need and want them to be productive members of society.
