CravensCARES Project Helps Out at Local Elementary School
On June 22, 2011 CravensCARES visited KIPP Peace Elementary School in Houston, to help beautify its campus. Margie Collins & Betty Copaus helped other IIAT Members and the Young Agents of Texas volunteer at the school, by doing landscaping, painting, and other beautification efforts.
Margie and Betty painted several accent walls in the classrooms. They enjoyed the opportunity to join with other members of the Independent Agents of Texas to make a difference in our local community.
