We are going to help some local kids out. It is something Colten would have done.

Schools have closets to help young ladies with homecoming/prom/special occasion clothing. We are going to help young men with dress pants, coats, dress shirts, ties, dress shoes and dress socks. If you have a gentleman in your life that wants to donate clothes to a good cause or has out grown those clothes, we would love to take those to help high school students. Colten's Closet will help provide these clothes to local high school youth for special events. Please donate fresh laundered clothing on hangers to this great cause. Please direct message me to let me know if you have donations. Thank you.

Hello everyone!
My name is Zane and I work for State Representative Terry Meza.
I meant to provide this link at an earlier date, my apologies. I know not everyone can make it on such short notice, but hopefully some of y'all can join us at 5 PM today so we can give everyone an update on HB 1287, "Colten's Law," and give some information on how y'all can help our office advocate for the passage of this important legislation, including how to testify before a committee.
Hope to see y'all there!

Please say a prayer for Colten's Law today. It is being filed for the upcoming legislative session this morning. Then at 1:00 pm today I am doing a zoom press conference with Representative Terry Meza's office and MADD. Meza's office got MADD on board to support it. Next is getting bipartisan support to get it passed into law. This law is the beginning of more to protect ALL Texans.

01/09/2021

Representative Terry Meza's office has called me back. There have been some personal changes in the office but they are still determined to change the law with us.

12/28/2020

Remember to wear your red tomorrow.

I wanted to share with you all here as well.

Update on Colten's Law from State Representative Terry Meza's Office.

One step in the right direction. NOTE: not my state representative Justin Holland or state senator Bob Hall. I will work to help Terry Meza stay elected.

Michaelle,

I hope you are having a good week. I just wanted to give you an update on the Colten's Law Bill.

Rep. Meza and I have gone through all of the research and information you provided and have proceeded in the process of filing the bill.

We have submitted the bill idea to the Legislative Council, a group of lawyers that work for the capitol to write the legislator proposed bills into existing Texas statues.

This is not the same thing as filing a bill, as members of the Legislature are not allowed to do that until closer to the legislative session. Once the bill is written, and we are allowed to officially file the bill, I will give you another update.

Let me know if you need any clarification, or if you have any additional questions.

Sincerely,
Dalton Heitmeier

08/16/2020

I finally got a call from a politician about Colten's Law after sending many emails to our state representatives and senators. Senator Kohlkorst office contacted me 3 times Friday and they are calling me Monday to talk about this. Please send good vibes and prayers that they want to author this bill and get it in the next session. I know this may take more than this season but hopeful we can get this done sooner than later.

In the future remember that Reps. Dan Flynn wouldn't even respond. Justin Holland's office met with me, had me do more research and won't respond now. State senator Bob Hall says he is too busy to take this on or even meet with me and then no response after the session.

We still have lanterns available for Saturday, in celebration of Colten's birthday. Please let me know if you would still like one. We don't mind bringing them by your home if you would like. Just let me know and we will deliver to your front porch,

05/29/2020

We gave away our very first 2 scholarships last night. I know Colten would be very proud that we did this.

05/28/2020

It is with a great amount of disappointment that we are going to have to cancel the annual Colten Birthday Party Celebration, Get-together, and fundraiser. With the Covid-19 virus we don't want to risk anyone's health. This year his actual birthday is on Saturday, June 13 so we were hoping to have it that actual day. He would have been 28.

However, we do have lanterns that we are wanting to share with everyone. You can write a message on it and send it up. These are biodegradable, so they are good for the environment, unlike traditional balloons. We will gladly bring one by your home (send me a message with you address) and leave it on your porch or we can put them on our porch and you can pick one up on your own (just let us know, so that we can put it on the front porch). We want you to take pictures so that we can put them on the website and publish them. We know he would be so honored that you took the time to do this for him. Thank you for taking the time to remember him. ❤️

12/31/2019

Anybody have experience in writing bills? Talked to Justin Holland's office and was told we didn't make the interim docket. Then they told me to write the bill I wanted. I want to do it right, because I don't want to keep delaying the process. Good news is I have a democratic representative in Dallas that wants to help work across the isle.

Please invite your friends to like our page. We can spread the word by getting more people involved.

Colten loved the color Red. Help us remember him and support the change in Texas Law. Wear your red tomorrow and show it off.

07/24/2019

Please pray about our meeting tomorrow at 10am with State Representative Justin Holland's office. We found out we will be meeting with his chief of staff Robert. I guess it is a part of the process.

07/22/2019

You may see this several times. I am going to post it on all the pages that I control. Please pray for our meeting this Thursday with State Rep. Justin Holland. Specifically pray that he and his team are willing to sponsor and work on Colten's law so we can get it passed in the next state congressional term.❤🙏👼

07/02/2019

Good news. We have an appointment with State Rep. Justin Holland on July 25. Please pray we get the law changed.

05/05/2019

Remember tomorrow to wear your red. Let's get the law changed.

04/26/2019

So terribly sad. We went to our scholarship meeting, to go over applicants for the CCMF Scholarship. Not a single one to give away. Only one out of the students that applied followed directions but wasn't an intellectually or developmentally disabled student. Not a single one from RHHS followed the directions at all. 🙁😓

03/18/2019

Hope you wear Red today too support our goal of changing law and remembering Colten.

Products

We have long sleeve and short sleeve shirts to promote changing state law. We want a state law that would require testing of all parties involved in a fatality accident and turning over of phone records.
