It’s easy to find your holiday spirit in EaDo

‘Tis the season of giving! Lots of EaDo businesses and organizations are doing their part to improve the community and more.

Combined Arms, a non-profit and vital part of the local veteran community, continues to find new ways to support vets in need with events like the recent Halliburton Charity Golf Tournament.


Of course, EaDo residents are always invited to volunteer for literacy by donating, sorting, and packing books that will one day fill a new library in an underdeveloped country. 


In addition to all of the charitable opportunities in the neighborhood, EaDo has everything you need to treat your friends, family, or co-workers to the best holiday party of the year. Start at a top-notch venue with swanky vibes, add in a show-stopping macaron tree, and set the scene with the perfect floral decorations. It’s all nearby and waiting for you. 


For those willing to venture a little farther out, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra has two performances set for the Toyota Center in neighboring Downtown on Sunday. Then, next Thursday, the arena will host a blood drive featuring Rockets hoodies for donors.
