 In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, UPS and Former NBA Player Steve “The Franchise” Francis, are joining forces to distribute relief supplies to those that were affected by the storm.  Hurricane Harvey has left a major hole in Texas, but UPS and Francis are pulling together to do their part in helping to get Houston back on their feet with the assistance of Constable Al Rosen of Houston’s Precinct 1.   

There are quite a few organizations that have been assisting with shelter, food, comfort and emergency support for individuals and their families that were affected by Harvey.  But when a major disaster like Hurricane Harvey comes through; it creates more needs than any one organization can handle on their own.

With this being considered the worst flooding disaster in US history Steve Francis wants to do all that he can to help with the recovery process; which is only just the beginning for Houston residents.  Francis stated the recovery work is about rebuilding lives and communities and we are here to help those in need. UPS employees, as well as local residents filled several UPS trailers with items that the community have been requesting.  

The distribution will take place on September 30, 2017 from 9:00a – 1:00p at The Spirit of Life Church 6717 Stuebner Airline Road; which is in the heart of Acres Home.

Smith Foundation 1st Annual Scholarship Gala

College costs today can be daunting to students and their families. There is an abundance of future leaders in our inner-city that do not continue to college simply because of financial hardships.  There are approximately 40% of students that get accepted into various colleges and universities in the Spring, but don’t show up for the fall because they simply can’t afford it.  Our event can mobilize a life-changing outpouring support of ten (10) aspiring students in our community by providing scholarships.  We can work together to ensure that these young students have a chance at continuing their journey to higher education. 


Program Goal: $40,000 to provide $4000 to each student for tuition and books.
