Love offering


Every year, Ruby's mom Sonia hopes to help one or more young people achieve their dreams in her daughter's name.
Among several raffles and giveaways throughout the year, the annual highlight will be a love offering presented to a local student, in honor of Ruby's love for animals and her church.

Supporting Ruby's Passions

Ruby was looking forward to starting college and had plans to visit a campus before choosing her alma mater. Unfortunately, she never had the chance.

Although Ruby was deprived of the experience of college life, she would have loved to lend her support to other students in their pursuit of a higher education.

Any donations and proceeds received through this website will therefore be divided between blessing a high school student on their way to college, BARC animal shelter, and Ruby's church.

Please consider donating for a good cause.

The winners of the 2023 Ruby L. Chavez Love Offering. 

This year, we selected four outstanding high school graduates at area schools in Ruby's memory.

"Recipients are chosen from our church, where we attend," said Ruby's mom, Sonia.
"They all attend different schools. I picked the ones that are graduating from high school because Ruby did not get to walk."

Stay tuned... 

for the 2024 winner announcement in May.

2022 Ruby L. Chavez Love Offering

(June 5, 2022)
This spring we blessed a dear friend of Ruby's. Janeth Jalomo faced some difficult times when her husband was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, just as she was starting her own business: NaMi's Accessories Boutique - Paparazzi Jewelry.

LNR donated some inventory to help this talented and hard-working young lady as she launched her new enterprise.

As always, we happily gave in Ruby's name and memory. Good luck, Janeth!


The first Ruby L. Chavez Love Offering has been awarded!

Ruby's family is pleased to announce that the recipient of the first Ruby L. Chavez Love Offering (2021) has been chosen, just around the time LNR Dog and Cat Accessories marked its first anniversary.

Kimberly Rodriguez, a freshman at the University of Houston Downtown, received a check in the amount of $500 to further her studies.

"We selected Kimberly as our first recipient because she was one of Ruby's Sunday school students," said Sonia. "We were also aware that Kimberly was facing some hardships due to an illness in the family."

 Congratulations, Kimberly, and all the best for the future!
