In honor of the grand opening and in the company’s spirit of giving, Joe V’s Smart Shop enlisted the community to nominate schools within the Cypress-Fairbanks ISD and Katy ISD deserving of donations via a social media contest. Donations totaling $30,000 to six schools were given to Robinson Elementary, Brosnahan Elementary, Thornton Junior High, McRoberts Elementary, Rhoades Elementary, and Cardiff Junior High. The winning schools, Cardiff Junior High and Brosnahan Elementary were each presented with a $10,000 gift. The other schools were gifted $2,500 each. An additional $5,000 gift was presented to Katy Christian Ministries, a social service nonprofit serving Katy and West Houston.
