Dream Center San Antonio - Back To School Adopt A Block

ADOPT-A-BLOCK FAMILY EVENT AUGUST 20
East Side Nonprofit Hosting A Back To School Bash to Benefit Families in Need

Dream Center San Antonio (DCSA) is a non-profit organization driven by the motto “Find a need and fill it, find a hurt and heal it.”
 
DCSA is located downtown on San Antonio’s East Side and will be serving the surrounding community on Saturday, August 20, 2011 through its Adopt-A-Block efforts.

On this day, interfaith volunteers from around the city and even other parts of the country will serve families in the area by distributing food, cutting lawns, trimming trees, performing minor home repairs, and connecting those in need to other useful resources. The main focus in this Adopt-A-Block is to host a Back to School Bash to support children in need of school supplies and other household commodities.
 
Adopt-A-Block events happen once every quarter of the year, as well as smaller efforts to serve the community on a week-to-week basis.
 
DCSA extends an invitation for volunteers to join in the efforts to bring hope to those who might just be looking for an act of service to change their outlook.
 
Headquarters for the event is located at the Friedrich Building parking lot at 1617 East Commerce Street.

8 a.m. to 9 a.m. - Volunteer Registration
