Back Pack Event
District 6 hosts their Back to School and School Supply Initiative each year. They provide over 1200 backpacks to needy students throughout the district. The students range from Pre-K through elementary and included the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, Catholic Charities as well as the Children's Shelter. Along with free food various organizations partnered to provide free services including free haircuts, eye exams, dental exams and supplies. Several mascots including the Spurs Coyote entertain the attendees at the event along with KLOVE radio.
Councilman Lopez expresses his thanks to all partners and volunteers for their support and dedication. Successful events like this demonstrate the effectiveness of our work and of our partnerships within District 6 and the San Antonio community.
Blue Santa Toy Drive
Each year during the District 6 Holiday Open House toys are collected for the Blue Santa Program.
People bring a new unwrapped toy to help us with our toy drive.
The Blue Santa Program is all about bringing hope and joy to families that struggle to make ends meet during the toughest times of the year, the holidays.
A simple gift can change a life.
Blue Santa is SAPOA’s way of saying to the community “we care and we are here to protect you and your family!”

Sock it to School Drive
Each year the District 6 Council Office collects socks for distribution to surrounding elementary schools.
They invite everyone to help the community by dropping off socks for this worthy cause.
If you look around and wonder how one single person could make a difference join the “Sock it to School” Drive.
In years past a large number of socks were collected by our hardworking community of caring, compassionate folks.
Something so simple, that many of us take for granted, but it is more than just a simple comfort; it is a necessity that is often out of reach for some children.
Your contribution will make a difference for someone in need.
Every year Councilman Ray Lopez donates a limited amount of turkeys to senior centers and other groups in the District for Thanksgiving.
