Always one of our most popular events of the year, The Chamber Holiday Food & Supply Drive took place on November 30, 2023 and benefitted Tony’s Place, a resource center and community space focusing on LGBTQ+ youth. Despite it being a rainy afternoon and evening, Chamber sponsors and the LGBTQ+ community and LGBTQ+ Allied community showed up in a BIG at the Drive, exceeding our expectations. We're so honored to have partnered with Tony's Place on this event to help them, help provide a haven for LGBTQ+ youth in Houston.
ABOUT TONY'S PLACE
Tony’s Place is a resource center and community space focusing on LGBTQ+ youth who are in need of help with safe housing, queer health services, educational support, and more.
Tony’s Place opened in 2016 in memory of Robert Anthony “Tony” Carroll, a pillar of the Houston community and a tireless advocate for numerous LGBTQ+ causes. Tony and his husband Bruce were strong advocates for a drop-in center for young LGBTQ+ people. The organization focuses on providing five core services: Basic Needs; Case Management; Support Services; Community Engagement; and Advocacy.
