Cynthia Pike-Fuentes, NCR President, shared, “From a parents’ perspective, NCR has provided our family with a unique variety of opportunities to serve our community, volunteering side by side with our sons. We are making meaningful family memories while helping others in need.”

NCR parent son teams volunteer a minimum of 20 philanthropy hours each year for various philanthropic organizations in the community, including Interfaith of The Woodlands, Meals on Wheels, Angel Reach, Operation Pets Alive, Inspiration Ranch and many more.

“We have enjoyed serving in NCR the last two years with our sons because it has taught them to think outside of themselves by loving on others different than them,” said Rachel Honeyman, VP of Philanthropy.
