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.
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!”
There are Graffiti Wipeout events help throughout the year in District 6. Graffiti costs Americans billions of dollars each year. It hurts property values, drives away businesses, and sends a negative message about the community. Graffiti is everyone’s problem. San Antonio is our home, help to keep it clean!
