EDINBURG, Texas – Rio Grande Valley FC volunteered at Believe in God’s (BiG) Heroes Inc. in Brownsville, Texas for Day 2 of the 12 Days of Toros campaign as the club serves the Rio Grande Valley community for 12 days during the holiday season.
The Toros organization was able to assist with the setup of their BiG Heroes Annual Christmas Sale and Fundraiser set for Saturday, December 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (www.bigherotx.org). RGV FC also aided in the sanding of wood projects, ironed table linens, set up games, and organized around the facility.
“I helped Big Heroes attend a Toros match last season, and they have always had a special place in my heart,” said Lyna Campos, Membership Services Executive for RGV FC. “I immediately thought of them when I heard we were doing 12 Days of Toros. It was such an honor helping them set up for their upcoming fundraiser this Saturday since it is an opportunity to give back to our local organizations, especially this amazing group.”
BiG Heroes Inc. is a God-centered non-profit organization which seeks to provide continued educational opportunities to young adults with intellectual disabilities post high school that seek employment. They train and empower members to produce and market unique handcrafted items to give back to their program and gain incentives.
BiG Heroes ultimate goal is to enrich the lives of their members with opportunities for continued learning, self-expression through the arts and important social interactions with their peers, job supervisors, volunteers and the community.
RGV FC will serve at Laguna Madre Youth Center on Monday, December 7 at 12 p.m. CST.
