Cane Island Katy is a community serving nonprofit with the mission of serving the Katy, Texas community. Our purpose of providing humanitarian support and community-based assistance is what guides us in and our decisions.
Friends of Cane Island Katy attend our service activities as and when they're available. There's no mandatory minimum time served. Show up when you can. We have two levels of affiliation. For an annual donation commitment of $35, you're helping to make all that we do possible, and for $100 you get a Canva Pro license (a $20 savings) and other perks as part of your affiliation!
We're committed to continue serving Katy in the same ways that we've been serving. Our relationship with the Katy Rice Harvest Festival in bringing the carnival, Katy Heritage Society in providing an adult continuing in the workforce scholarship, and our work providing much needed eye exams and prescription glasses to students in Katy ISD remains unchanged.
The Transparent Closet is a free clothing boutique designed for trans and exploring teens, youth, and young adults to have a safe space for clothing needs and beyond. The Closet is a welcoming space with clothes, undergarments, binders, hair and style accessories, make-up, and more.
Katy Police Department
We collect toys in November and early December to take to the Katy Police Department. We also host an annual event to raise funds for the K-9 handlers.
Katy Heritage Society
Working with the Katy Heritage Society, we provide a second $1000 Adult Continuing in the Workforce Scholarship. Lifelong learning should be accessible to all, and this unique scholarship promotes the City of Katy and our unique history while providing a platform for adults to gain professional education.
Neighborhood Garden Project
The Neighborhood Garden Project is a community garden giving families the opportunity to grow food by helping remove common suburban obstacles - primarily the lack of adequate space and sufficient sunlight. The project caters to all ages and abilities, providing a safe space to learn and experience.
In support of Hope Impacts, we organize an annual clothing drive in the offseason and as needed to supplement their inventory of socks, underwear, pants, and more.
Eyes of Hope
Working with Katy ISD and Hope Impacts, we meet the critical need of providing glasses to our low-income neighbors in Katy. We are a local VSP Eyes of Hope Certificate Provider, offering those who meet the eligibility criterea eye exams and glasses at little to no cost to them or their families.
