Together, Our Impact is Strongest
Uniting the community to identify and solve our most critical issues depends on your generous support.
Helping Those in Need
The 7th Annual Shoebox Project is an effort to provide shoeboxes filled with everyday toiletries to be distributed to many of our nonprofit partners. Over 10,500 boxes have been requested to help those in need.
Basic comforts such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste, and other personal-care items are a luxury for many San Antonio children, veterans, elderly, homeless and vulnerable populations. Change a life today by participating in the Shoebox Project.
