The Howard Hughes Corporation extends complimentary seasonal space for the non-profit serving adults with disabilities selling a variety of crafts and gifts
The Howard Hughes Corporation has extended the complimentary seasonal usage of prime retail space in Hughes Landing for The Brookwood Community, a non-profit educational, residential and entrepreneurial organization for adults with disabilities. Brookwood’s store in Hughes Landing in The Woodlands will re-open Tuesday, January 26, through April 24, 2021, to sell a variety of crafts and gifts made locally.
“The Brookwood store was very popular and well received over the holiday season, and we are happy to extend their presence in Hughes Landing through the spring,” said Jim Carman, President, Houston Region for The Howard Hughes Corporation. “It’s a win-win for shoppers and this important non-profit in our community. Our embracement of Brookwood’s store is an extension of our company-wide social responsibility program HHCares, which includes community-focused philanthropy through financial donations and volunteerism.” Annually, The Howard Hughes Corporation donates to over 130 causes at local non-profit organizations in the Greater Houston area.
Vivian Streit Shudde, Chief Executive Officer of The Brookwood Community, added, “We are extremely grateful to The Howard Hughes Corporation for extending this generous gift of retail space. We have been greatly affected by COVID and so have many of our families. Having a store at Hughes Landing gives us a tremendous opportunity for our enterprises to make up some of the much needed lost revenue. Our Citizens – adults with disabilities – have poured every ounce of their hard-to-learn skills into making and growing products to sell. The Howard Hughes Corporation heard about our need and shared our passion to ‘speak for those who have no voice’ and provided one of the most beautiful retail spaces.”
The Brookwood store is open at 2025 Hughes Landing in suite 900, adjacent to the new multifamily residences, Two Lakes Edge, and Whole Foods® Market. The award-winning, 79-acre Hughes Landing is a mixed-use development and features urban walkability along 200-acre Lake Woodlands.
The store is open on Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm.
