STVA Gives Back!

2018 Events Posted Below!

We will be holding a club wide event in August 2018 and November 2018, where athletes and their families will have an opportunity to give back to our community.  In 2017, we kicked this off by working with Brandyn Rodriguez and the San Antonio Diaper Bank.  It was a great event and the kids and their families truly enjoyed the experience!

Event Description:

Groups and individuals work together to sort and/or pack produce, non-perishable foods, and household items, preparing them for distribution. Duties may include checking for expiration dates, opened packages and spoilage, labeling cans, and packing bags of food or household items. Other duties may include general cleaning of the area, breaking down boxes etc. This project is fun and rewarding for both adults and children.
