THE WOODLANDS, Texas -- Crisis Assistance Center is pleased to announce the generous donation of $5,000 from the Hindu Temple of The Woodlands and matched by the Jabrisa Foundation (and the Tripathy Family).

Brought together in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, The Hindu Temple of The Woodlands and Crisis Assistance Center joined forces to help feed those that are hungry and food insecure in Montgomery County. In Hinduisim, Dharma means duty and virtue referring to the power that upholds the universe and society. The Senior Forum of the Hindu Temple of The Woodlands chose to partner with Crisis Assistance to ensure that their neighbors in their community will be fed. For the second year The Hindu Temple of The Woodlands, Senior Forum and the Jabrisa Foundation/Tripathy Family have ensured the funds are being used through CAC to feed the greatest numbers of people in their community.

The Hindu Temple of The Woodlands was established in 2005 and inaugurated several years later, it serves the religious, cultural, educational, and social needs of the surrounding community, as well as providing services and opportunities to serve others to all age groups.

The temple and its members are generous to the local community. Last year, over $30,000 was gifted to the Harvey Relief Fund; along with volunteers providing hot meals to the flood victims. Teams of members helped with clean up. The temple and its Seniors Forum donate to the Montgomery County Women’s Center and to Crisis Assistance Center Client Choice Food Pantry.

Free Yoga and Meditation classes are conducted in the temple.
