SAN ANTONIO (December 21, 2020) — On Saturday, Councilwoman Jada Andrews-Sullivan and Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran hosted a Community Holiday Book Giveaway at the South Side Lions Senior Center. This was a drive-thru event in which both districts distributed free books, holiday children’s books, coloring books, crayons and more. Attendees were asked to stay in their vehicles and wear a mask to follow COVID-19 safety protocols.
“It was so wonderful seeing all the families come together for this holiday event! District 2 and District 3 wanted to do something special for our community this holiday season, and I feel like we accomplished that,” stated Councilwoman Viagran. “The look on our children’s faces as they received their books was magical – it definitely set the tone for holiday spirit.”
“I am so happy District 2 partnered with District 3 on this event – it was so special! We distributed hundreds of books to our community members and gave them a little holiday cheer,” said Councilwoman Andrews-Sullivan. “It is nice to still be able to do events, even if we have to be social distanced – our community is so important to us.”
District 2 and District 3 distributed over 400 tote bags. We would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to our partners; CPS Energy, San Antonio Water System, Valero and The San Antonio Food Bank who were instrumental in helping fill our bags and creating a wonderful experience for our community.
