Join HHS TWRC Wildlife Center for #GivingTuesday

November 29, 2022

We invite you to join us on Tuesday, November 29 as we participate in #GivingTuesday, the online global generosity movement. It is a day of giving in any way you can to help HHS TWRC Wildlife Center in our mission to promote environmental conservation through public education and rehabilitation of Texas wildlife.

We have several goals for the upcoming year; however, the most pressing is the need to raise $100,000+ for a larger, permanent building. This building would allow us to enhance wildlife rehabilitation, conservation, and education work in the Greater Houston area.

Mark Gresko has established the Jeannie Gresko Memorial Fund in honor of his late wife, Jeannie Gresko, who was a long-time volunteer with HHS TWRC Wildlife Center. One of Jeannie’s greatest wishes was for us to have a permanent home. Mark has generously donated an initial gift of $100,000. He will match that gift if we raise an additional $100,000 within 12 months. He will consider an even larger contribution if we exceed that goal! All money raised on #GivingTuesday will go into the Jeannie Gresko Memorial Fund to help us fulfill Jeannie’s wish.

Please consider donating to us on #GivingTuesday so we can expand our reach and resources across our community. And with Mark's match, your support will make TWICE the impact! We are grateful for your generosity.
