Transforming Lives • Strengthening Community

Philanthropic Programs

Operation School Bell®

Elementary students, grades K – 5, visit our store and, with the help of their “personal shopper”, select new clothing, including socks and underwear.  They also receive a shoe voucher, a jacket, a personal care kit, school supplies and at least one new book.  Their smiles as they leave are as big as the bags they are carrying!

Togs For Tots

Working through social agencies, new clothing is provided to infants, toddlers and preschool children.  They also receive a personal grooming kit, a “Watch Me Grow” booklet and an age-appropriate book.

CAPS  (Caps Art Promotes Smiles)

Baseball and bucket hats are decorated and provided to patients, especially children, undergoing chemotherapy.

Adopt A Resident

Monthly birthday parties and weekly bingo games brighten the lives of the residents of our Assisted Living partner.

I’m In Charge

This in-school program empowers children to plan for personal safety when home alone or approached by strangers.  Gun safety, bullying and cyber-bullying are also emphasized.

Enhanced Learning Awards

These enrichment awards provide funds for supplemental teaching materials or educational experience not otherwise included in a school’s or teacher’s budget.

Scholarship Program

Provides scholarships to qualified junior and senior students attending four-year college or university in Bexar County.  Many of the recipients are non-traditional students.

Watch Me Grow

This program provides a developmental skills booklet printed in both English and Spanish.  It is an easy-to-read guide on nutritional and development benchmarks for parents of young children birth through age five.
