Each year CWC supports the community through an Adopt-A-Cause donation that benefits a 501c3 organization and a particular project that they are completing. In addition the club provides monetary assistance to various local not-for-profits that support a similar mission to CWC. Our member based service projects provide an opportunity for our volunteers to participate in hands on activities that support our community throughout the year. The club also awards approximately 20 $1,000 scholarships to Cy-Fair area students each year.
