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!
