Help House hosts 3rd Annual Family Kite Fest


Saturday afternoon the sky was filled with kites at the Help House's 3rd Annual Kite Fest.

The Help House is a resource for families dealing with an autistic child.

The kite fest is the biggest fundraiser for the non-profit and officials say is way to raise money for the center while raising awareness throughout the community.        

Along with kites there were plenty of vendors, games, a climbing wall and bounces house for kids to enjoy.

"Well we're a non-profit so we rely completely on the donations from the community. Nacogdoches has been really supportive in the past of our organization and we're proud to say this year we got sponsors from the Lufkin area and Center as well," said Amanda Johnson, Help House Director.

The Help House hosts two fundraisers each year.

In the fall they will host their "Be the Piece that Matters" 5k and 10k in Nacogdoches.
