SA YES staff and the San Antonio Police Department visited Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio, Eastside Clubhouse to distribute free school supplies. This community support empowers Club members to focus on their Academic Success – one of BGCSA’s priority outcomes – and gives them the tools necessary to start the school year with essentials such as colored pencils, crayons, notebook paper, eraser, glue stick, folder, pencils, notebook paper, spiral notebook, a ruler, ballpoint pens and a box of tissues. SA YES and the SAPD gave a school supply kit to each Club member.

THANK YOU TO ALL!

Whew! What an amazing outpour of support during the first week of school.  Each year, we at SA YES, along with our Board members and numerous volunteers, pack, unpack, dress up and distribute supplies over all the city of San Antonio to elementary schools. 

At the start of the week, we were set to distribute to 37 elementary schools within four school districts and by the end of the week, we were able to provide 40 elementary schools with free school supplies for 23,000 students.

I would like to thank all of our donors and sponsors from our annual SA YES Golf Classic and Taste of Education for making this possible for us. I would like to give special recognition to Thomas J Henry, The Henry Family, Methodist Healthcare, Santikos Entertainment and Schlitterbahn Waterparks for helping sponsor the school supply kits.

All of this success would not be possible without all of the companies and organizations that sent their employees to help, including but not limited to, Quarter Moon Productions, Accenture, The Watermark Group, NuStar Energy, Marathon Oil, Robert Half, H-E-B, Target (San Pedro), The Bank of San Antonio, US Navy, Career Point College, Macy’s (La Cantera) and The PM Group.

Again, thank you to everyone involved, we appreciate you!

P.s. For more information about this program or how to get involved, contact me at (210) 298-8800.

SA YES is proud to partner with Maya’s Corner & My Kid’s Polo

SA YES is excited to announce our recent partnership with Maya’s Corner and My Kid’s Polo to help distribute school uniforms to San Antonio students in need.  Starting in August 2016, SA YES will partner with Edgewood ISD middle schools to help distribute over 500 school uniforms to students at selected schools.

My Kid’s Polo was founded with the belief that all kiddos should have the chance to wear clothes that reflect who they are, reflect their individuality.  For every icon shirt that is bought, one shirt will be donated to at-risk youth in San Antonio.  This movement is known as #icons4icons

Maya’s Corner was founded in 2011 to raise awareness and funds for causes close to the heart of founder, Maya Henry. The organization has worked with numerous groups over the years to positively impact the lives of children, families, and animals.  Maya’s Corner has been involved with school supply distribution with SA YES. 

We will continue to update our social media with more exciting news as we increase this opportunity to additional schools.

Maya Henry Chooses SA YES

3/8/2016

Screen Shot 2016-02-22 at 3.15.56 PM

Recently SA YES received a little limelight when Maya Henry, daughter of Azteca and Thomas J. Henry, celebrated her Quinceañera in February. Besides what some have called the “best party San Antonio has ever seen” there was a philanthropic effort present as well.  

SA YES was selected as one of two charities that Maya Henry asked that donations be made to in lieu of gifts for her special birthday celebration.  In just a few short weeks, $5,000 in donations were made by party guests in Maya’s name to support the efforts of SA YES. 

Maya and the entire Henry family are strong supporters of SA YES. In 2015, Azteca and Thomas J. Henry sponsored two of the organization’s biggest fundraisers; the SA YES Golf Classic and the SA YES Taste of Education Dinner. In August, Maya and her mother helped the organization distribute school supplies to at-risk children throughout the San Antonio area.

 We are incredibility grateful for her support and thinking of us.
