Main Street Participates in 2023 Child Advocates’ Pull for Kids Classic Event
In April 2023, Main Street participated in Child Advocate’s Annual Pull for Kids Classic event. Child Advocates (http://www.childadvocates.org/) mobilizes court-appointed volunteers to break the vicious cycle of child abuse by speaking up for abused children who are lost in the system and guiding them into safe environments where they can thrive.
The Pull for Kids Classic is Child Advocates’ largest annual fundraiser held at American Shooting Centers, a Main Street Portfolio Company. Main Street sponsored and participated in the 31st annual Pull for Kids event. The event begins with a daytime sporting clays tournament followed by a silent auction to raise funds to help the thousands of abused and neglected children in Harris County.
Main Street and its employees supported the charity by volunteering, participating in the clay shoot and providing monetary donations of $14,000. In addition to the donations, 5 Main Street volunteered their time to help organize and move all the materials needed for the event as a part of the Main Street Volunteer Time Off (VTO) program. Main Street also supported the charity by having a team participate in the sporting clays tournament. Ultimately, the team helped Child Advocates raise $800,000, exceeding their fundraising goal. These funds will substantially impact the recruitment, training, and ongoing support of court-appointed volunteers who tirelessly advocate for the well-being of children within the foster care system.
