Cy-Hope donates to Cypress-Fairbanks ISD
Cy-Hope has donated $11,000 to Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District.
According to a press release, the donation came about when Dr. Betty Devine, the founder and artistic director for the Houston Choral Society, expressed a desire to give back to Cy-Hope through her passion for music.
One of the donations, in the amount of $10,000, will impact music programs at 18 elementary and six secondary campuses with 60 percent or more of students qualifying for free or reduced-price meals. The other $1,000 grant will fund the CFISD Choral Festival in the spring, the press release said.
"Music crosses all generations and all demographics. It can bring joy to so many people, no matter their economic status," said Cy-Hope executive director Lynda Zelenka in the release. "I think that's critical in the lives of our students. Its a blessing for us to be able to fill a gap and make the community aware of some of these needs in Title I schools."
Cy-Hope is located at 8350 Jones Road, Houston.
