Adopt-A-Block
 
The aim is to directly impact communities, neighborhoods, and homes with services such as cleaning yards, performing minor home repairs, covering graffiti, providing support and assistance for elderly as well as providing urgent needs such as food, clothing, and teen interventions. Adopt-A-Block engages volunteer teams of staff mentors, at-risk youth, community non-profits, businesses, and residents to serve the low-income communities of San Antonio. The vision is to impact the community one block, one family at a time.

Where: Meet at DCSA offices (107 S Pine San Antonio, 78203)

re:LOVE
 
re:LOVE’s mission is to provide hope to the underprivileged communities of San Antonio by distributing gently-used and new clothes, shoes, miscellaneous household items, and toiletries and personal hygiene items. Every distribution is free of charge and without obligation. We believe that no one should go without the basic household toiletries needed for everyday use. re:LOVE also serves as a resource to other programs such as foster care, CPS, and shelters in and around our city. Every month, re:LOVE will be holding a different donation drive—collecting a specific need for the month.
 
Distribution Information
 
Clothing & toiletries distributed every Saturday at Fairchild Park (behind DCSA) from 10:45 A.M. – 1:00 P.M. during Adopt-A-Block
Toiletries distributed every first Tuesday of the month during INC at DCSA (1617 E. Commerce St)
Clothing distributed every second Tuesday of the month during INC at DCSA
