Quest IRA Volunteer Day – Avondale House

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…lady bugs? They may not be heroes but they sure are cute! Here at Quest IRA, we believe in making a positive impact in the lives of our clients. We decided to go out and spread some positivity by helping the Houston community.  On June 17th, five of our Questies volunteered at the Avondale House, an organization providing for the specific needs of Autistic students in the Houston area. Established in 1976, The Avondale House addresses the “sensory, educational, and developmental needs” of students coming from 12 different school districts, and provides day programs for young adults.

We prepared some fun crafts to get the students into a summertime mood – nothing screams summer like popsicles and ladybugs! It was so much fun to see the Avondale House students unleash their creative and crafty side, and even more fun for us giving them a helping hand.

When all was said and done, the students had made some very pretty lady bugs, and delicious looking popsicles.

Giving back and volunteering in our local community is always a fun and rewarding experience, and we could not have picked a better organization to help. Check out the links below if you would like to learn more about the Avondale House and how to get involved.
