“We have been blessed with the opportunity to be a blessing to others in this time of need,” the Councilwoman said. “This distribution is a token of our care for our beloved homeless population of District 2. We have some of the greatest partners to assist us in this mission of blessings such as Spurs Give, Meals on Wheels, and the San Antonio Food Bank. Now, is the time to be there for one another and that’s exactly what we will do.”

We are grateful to launch the Mobile Shower Trailer last year and blessed to be able to share it as a community resource, especially during this pandemic.”
