Our founder, Pedro Cortez, was a firm believer that if you are going to lead, you must serve. This concept has been woven into our culuture as is evident by the 1,800 hours donated to our Community in 2017. We are very proud of our Damas y Caballeros for their contributions that reached far and wide into our community. Their efforts served as blessings to others but most importantly to themselves.
2017 Community Partners
Come join our team and participate in La Familia Cortez Restaurants Volunteer Task Force!
This project started small five years ago and has grown tremendously through the years. It has become a tradition for our team members and in 2017, we are happy to report that our team donated 355 shoeboxes to the children of Piedras Negras, Mexico. Our friends at our partner Church, Oak Hills West Side Campus, have become a part of our family. We look forward to many more years of sharing our blessings with others.
"If there be any truer measure of a man than what he does, it must be by what he gives." This Robert South quote was the introduction of a heart warming letter from a team member and her co-workers at Mi Tierra Cafe & Bakery. It touched the souls of many and prompted the birth of this annual tradition of bringing joy to children hospitalized at our neighbor, Christus Santa Rosa during this holiday. Our first year, 2017, was funfilled as well as truly rewarding. We expect that this collaboration will continue to flourish throughout the years.
