Started in early 2020 by Weston Centre Tenants and Management Team, the Blessing Bags 4 SA charity was created with the goal to provide an act of kindness to local San Antonians during these trying times. With this goal in mind, the committee decided that gifting Blessing Bags would be a great way to provide hope and kindness to others.
Since its launch, the Blessing Bags 4 SA charity has been able to donate thousands of Blessing Bags, delivering the message of hope and love to the less fortunate. Each Blessing Bag contains Water, Dried Food, Socks, Personal Hygiene products, and other essential items.
On Monday morning’s volunteers gather in solidarity at Main Plaza to gift Blessing Bags.
This winter, committee organizers partnered with Centro San Antonio and together were able to raise hundreds of winter jackets for local San Antonio families.
The success of the Blessing Bag 4 SA has come from its volunteers and donors! If you would like to get involved, there are a few ways you can help.
