SABOR has several opportunities for members to join us in giving back to the community.
Last year SABOR adopted the San Antonio Food Bank as one of our two Charities of Choice. This year we decided to continue with our yearlong peanut butter drive to help satisfy one of the Food Bank’s greatest needs. If you would like to join in, please drop off your donations or have them sent to SABOR at 9110 W IH-10.
In late June SABOR kicked off our annual Uniform Drive for the children at SAMMinistries. SABOR members play a huge role in helping the kids at the shelter get ready for back to school, and we need your help to make this year a continued success. This year SABOR is hosting the Uniform Drive online, so there is no need to come to the association to select a child to sponsor. Simply select a child from the online form and purchase the requested items. Then drop off your items (with the child’s information attached) at SABOR and we will take care of the rest! Participate here!
Beginning in July, SABOR’s REALTOR® Image and Community Outreach Committee launched an Activity Donation Drive to benefit Child Advocates of San Antonio (CASA). The drive is focused on collecting activities for children (infant to age 19) including items like games, puzzles, and crafts. Donations can be dropped off at SABOR or if you prefer you can have the item mailed to the association. Here is a flyer with more info!
This year SABOR will also be hosting a drive for the Children’s Hunger Fund which will take place during the month of September. The drive will be specifically for 16-ounce packages of pasta. If you would like to participate, please bring your donations to SABOR during the month of September.
In October, a drive benefiting the Fisher House will commence. This year we are asking for donations of gift cards to grocery stores. The Fisher House is a home where military and veterans’ families can stay free of charge while their loved one is in the hospital. By donating grocery gift cards, you are helping the families with loved ones in the hospital not have to worry about food during difficult times. The gift cards allow the Fisher House to provide meals and snacks to their residents so food is never a concern.
In November, SABOR’s YPN Committee will put up their “Y We Care Tree” which helps to provide children at SAMMinistries with holiday gifts. The tree will have paper ornaments that have a child’s specific holiday gift wish on it. To participate just choose an ornament from the tree, purchase the gift and bring it back to SABOR unwrapped by the due date on the ornament.
On November 5, SABOR will be having a Volunteer Day at the San Antonio Food Bank. This is an opportunity for our members to help sort and package food in the Food Bank’s warehouse to help provide meals to families in our community. The event will last from 9:30 – 11:00 a.m. and is a great way to get involved and give back. With a wide variety of upcoming donation drives, we are eager for your participation!
