Holidays are a time for giving thanks and sharing.
For many of our families it is not necessarily a time of
joy. The cold weather means higher electric bills. Schools are closed means
higher grocery bills. These things are added burdens to our families with
limited incomes. You can make a difference by Sponsoring- A- Family – your
company, your family or your civic organization. Families are in need of food
(nonperishable), hygiene items, winter clothes, baby/toddler shoes and socks,
blankets and an educational toy – very possibly the only toy that child will receive!
You will receive a family synopsis with their needs to start your
shopping. For more information on how you can help sponsor a family,
please contact Beth Walthall, 210-220-1788 ext. 252 email@example.com
Valero and United Way Day of Caring
Thank you Valero!
On Saturday, July 30, 2016, over 200 Valero Volunteers
took over the AVANCE Fenley Center. For 5 hours, these amazing volunteers painted interior classrooms and hallways
and exterior doors and railings. They planted planted new grass and shrubs and spread mulch
and crushed granite on all 3 playgrounds. They installed new art work, hardware for cabinet pulls and even new counter tops for the kitchen. They totally transformed the center
and it is now fresh and beautiful for our AVANCE families and children. Please check out the YouTube video below.
