SAWS Summer Food Drive: Making a Difference in Our Community, One Can at a Time

The San Antonio Water System (SAWS) is gearing up for a summer of giving back to the community with a special food drive aimed at supporting those in need. As part of their #SAWSsummer initiative, SAWS is hosting a drive-thru food collection on Saturday, July 22, to benefit the San Antonio Food Bank. This event presents an opportunity for residents to make a positive impact by helping to provide much-needed food assistance to families and individuals facing food insecurity.

Join SAWS in making a difference in our community and kick off the summer on a philanthropic note. The drive-thru food collection will take place at SAWS HQ Tower II, located at 2800 281 N (@ Mulberry), from 8 am to 11 am.

To show appreciation to those who contribute to this worthy cause, the first 50 cars to arrive at the food drive will receive a special SAWS Summer swag bag, adding an extra incentive to participate in this act of kindness.

As the community comes together to support the food drive, SAWS is requesting donations of non-perishable canned food items, which can make a significant difference in the lives of individuals and families experiencing food insecurity. To ensure the donations are impactful and provide a variety of options, the most wanted canned items have been identified. These include:

πŸ₯œ Peanut Butter
πŸ₯£ Cereal
🐟 Tuna
πŸ₯« Pop Top Food Items
πŸ› Beans
🍚 Rice
πŸ§€ Mac & Cheese
🍲 Full meals in a can or box
πŸ₯« Canned lunch meats like SPAM
🍲 Chili & Soups
🐾 Pet food
🍼 Baby food & diapers

The San Antonio Food Bank plays a vital role in providing nourishment and support to thousands of individuals in the San Antonio community, and contributions from events like the SAWS Summer Food Drive make a significant impact on their efforts.

In these challenging times, the spirit of giving back and supporting one another becomes even more crucial. As you embark on your summer activities, consider taking a few moments to be part of this meaningful initiative. Your simple act of donating a can or box of non-perishable food items can make a world of difference to someone in need.

Join SAWS and the community on Saturday, July 22, for the drive-thru food collection at SAWS HQ Tower II. Together, we can make a positive impact, nourishing not only the bodies but also the hearts of those facing challenging circumstances.
