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.

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
