Event Details

RoseMary Grand Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star is a charitable organization that has
served the Houston community since 1974.

Our organization strives to make an impact in the community by providing assistance to
those in need and is whole heartedly dedicated to charity and loving kindness.  Most of
our charitable givings aim to alleviate the distress and discomfort of the less fortunate
by providing them with general necessities at no cost. 
 

This year we have committed to making a donation to the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation.

Children with Type 1 diabetes must pay careful attention to diet and exercise, so in addition to making

a financial contribution to the organization, we are also hosting a health and fitness awareness camp

this summer. This day camp will provide structured, fun activities designed to keep children physically

active and teach them valuable lessons on diet and exercise. The camp will be tuition free, giving children

who would not typically be able to afford camp, the opportunity to experience camp life!

 

Typical services we extend to the community include donating box fans and air conditioning
units to those that do not have central air, donating school supplies and uniforms to
students, supplying turkeys and Thanksgiving dinner bags to families in need, supplying
Christmas gifts and sponsoring toy drives to help needy children enjoy the Christmas
season.  
 
We have recently completed our first Holiday Home Makeover, where were able to bless a family
by remodeling and furnishing their home. This will be added to the following annual events that
are sponsored by RoseMary Grand Chapter.
 
School Supply Drive: 

RoseMary Grand Chapter will host our annual school supply drive this year on August 23, 2014.
We typically  provide hundreds of students with complete school supply packages and
backpacks for their return to school.  

This year we will expand our service project to include free lunch kits, uniforms, shoes,
hygiene kits and professional hair care services by licensed stylist and barbers.

Myrtle V. Hunter Scholarship:

Each year we award two scholarships to graduating high school seniors who have
demonstrated a commitment to scholastic excellence during their high school years. 

In addition to the scholarship we hope to expand this to also providing a college dorm
packet to include a television, mini-fridge, dvd player, sheets and comforter, etc. to
assist deserving students with their transition to college life.  For more information on our scholarship, please email rgcwgm@yahoo.com.
