Urban Eve, BleuRoots Salons
Jennifer Culverhouse, owner of Urban Eve, BleuRoots Salons, moved with her family to Brazoria County in 2001. Her husband, Jason Culverhouse, originally transferred to the area to work in the Houston oil industry, but their family wanted to build a life outside of the city. They found a little spot on the map called Lake Jackson, and it ended up being a great fit. Her favorite things about living in this area are the people, the relationships, and the generosity.
Events All Around, LLC
Damian & Associates, Inc.
United Way of Brazoria County is excited to announce that the Brazos Mall has just became one of our Small Business | Big Impact members. The Brazos Mall has been a Brazosport area staple since opening in 1976. Since then, its combination of locally owned and national retailers has created a lively and vibrant community hub.
Patty Sayes, General Manager of Brazos Mall, loves how deeply engrained the mall is in our community and how much they give back. “It’s a part of who we are,” she says. Not only is the mall a place to shop with family and friends, it is also a resource for the community. The Brazos Mall has a great relationship with the Salvation Army and hosts an annual Adopt an Angel Tree at Christmas time. The mall also has a 20-year relationship with the Brazoria County SPCA. Holding at least 3 community events every week, year-round, the Brazos Mall hosts bake sales and blood drives. The mall also hosts Trick or Treat on Halloween for kids, Kids Day, Senior Fest, Health Fares and Military Wives and Moms events. One of their goals is to “be a shopping center and a center for the community”
After 9/11, the Brazos Mall started Fill-A-Box for a soldier and won the International Council of Shopping Centers MAXI award for community service. The mall also participates in the “Adopt a Ship” program, sending Christmas stockings and Valentine’s Day packages to every soldier on their sponsored ship, which benefits around 250 soldiers each holiday. The Brazos Mall has received special recognition from the Navy for their “Adopt a Ship” efforts.
The Brazos Mall also answers the call when disaster strikes, Following Hurricane Katrina, the mall filled two 18 wheelers of relief items for Katrina survivors. To help the tornado survivors in Oklahoma, they built a house in the middle of the mall for a card drive, donating the proceeds to American Red Cross. And immediately following Hurricane Harvey, the Brazos Mall teamed up with United Way of Brazoria County, the Brazosport Ministerial Alliance, The Dow Chemical Company Dow Texas Operations, Events All Around, and The Facts to bring a centralized donations drop-off site to benefit Brazoria County residents recovering from the impacts of Hurricane Harvey. That effort raised over 13,000 relief items for local residents.
The Brazos Mall has chosen to join Small Business | Big Impact because they believe that local businesses deserve recognition for their work in the community. With all that said, we are very proud to have the Brazos Mall as a 2018 founding member of Small Business | Big Impact.
