Map: Get the spirit and give back
Believe it or not, it is already time to start planning for holiday giving! If you've got the spirit, there are plenty of opportunities to donate food, gifts or time in the San Antonio area - but we need your help getting donation locations and information on the map.
If you know of an organization accepting food or gift donations that is not already on our map, or a fundraiser that is not yet listed below, please email us at email@example.com with the details.

Though San Antonio has weathered the recent recession better than most, there has been an increase in need and a decrease of resources for nonprofit human services organizations. Food banks across the country are short on donations, and the San Antonio Food Bank is among those in need.
There are a host of fundraising events for organizations dedicated to feeding the hungry and creating happy holiday memories for children and families. Above is a map of locations accepting donated food or gifts, followed by a list of local holiday fundraising initiatives and events - in 2011 our map had more than 300 locations!
You can donate food or gift items, participate in a charity event, volunteer your time with any of these organizations or visit their web sites for information on how to donate online. Remember to send us your volunteering stories and photos to share! You can post directly to the site or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
