Our Charity of Choice: Boys and Girls Country

Donate through A Better Tripp and send 12 children’s home residents to summer camp.

A Better Tripp is honored to work with Boys and Girls Country —a full-time children’s home serving the Greater Houston area. This summer, we sent six kids to T Bar M summer camp, a non-denominational Christian sports and adventure camp located in New Braunfels and Austin, Texas.

Now, we’re setting our sights even higher: Our goal for summer 2014 is to send 12 lucky campers to T Bar M. That’s why we’re starting a fundraising program. When you sign up for our moving or storage services, you’ll have the option to make a one-time cash donation to Boys and Girls Country at the same time. All donations are tax deductible— we’ll write you a receipt.

Our donation goal is $10,800 — the cost of sending 12 kids to T Bar M. Want to see how much money is donated by A Better Tripp customers? Check here and on our Facebook page for a running total.

In summer 2013, A Better Tripp sent six kids to T Bar M. We also participated in their annual Spring Festival. Five of our employees volunteered at the information and lost and found booths, plus helped deliver furniture to be sold at the festival. David Tripp and his family volunteered at the ice cream booth and iced tea booth. Boys ad Girls Country sent us this cute video to thank us for helping out.
