Annual Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway at Sonny Melendrez Community Center
What a joyful privilege it was to personally present families with Thanksgiving turkeys at the Melendrez Community Center on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, made possible through the extreme generosity of our friends at HEB. Special thanks go out to SMCC Director, Alex Charles and his staff for, once again, making our annual event a warm experience for all. Below are several members of the 100 families we were able to serve.
My deep appreciation to San Antonio Parks & Recreation Assistant Manager, Brenda Burton; City of San Antonio, Senior Management. Analyst, Phillip Covington; San Antonio Parks Foundation VP, Amanda Gangawer and HEB Public Affairs Coordinator, Whitney Schafman for teaming up to make it all happen.
While HEB’s community slogan is “Helping Here,” for years I’ve told my audience that in San Antonio, the letters strongly stand for, “Helping Every Body!” #SociallyResponsible
