Help a neighbor in need
Volunteers and monetary support are needed as Texans begin to rebuild from the catastrophic events brought on by Winter Storm Uri. San Antonians can donate food, supplies, and their time to organizations like Meals on Wheels San Antonio, Salvation Army San Antonio Area Command, and American Red Cross Serving Central and South Texas, or consider a financial gift to the San Antonio Pets Alive and San Antonio Food Bank.

Join the Let’s Help SA Initiative
Join the Let’s Help SA Initiative to lift up those affected by last week’s winter storm. The ongoing effort is raising millions of dollars to directly benefit SAMMinistries, the San Antonio Food Bank, and Haven for Hope as they work to help community members in need. Learn more about the initiative and make your donation on the Let’s Help SA website.
