600 Families Receive Christmas Dinner Bags

SAN ANTONIO, January 10

Good Samaritan Community Services (Good Sam) is helping to feed 600 San Antonio families by providing the ingredients to prepare a holiday dinner. Each year, Good Sam provides the groceries necessary for families in need to enjoy a themed meal during the holiday season. The 2018 Annual Christmas Bag distribution takes place on Friday, December 15th, from
8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Good Sam located at 1600 Saltillo Street, San Antonio, Tx 78207.
Churches, civic organizations, corporations, and families across San Antonio have purchased, packaged, and delivered over 900 dinner bags over the last month to make this distribution possible for families on San Antonio’s West Side. The dinner bags include: a turkey, green beans, corn, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, cranberries, napkins, plates, and a small gift or game.
“Each season, our local churches and businesses come together to make sure our neighbors are able to prepare and participate in their own families feast,” said Good Sam’s CEO, Simon Salas. “We are blessed that San Antonians from all parts of the city are willing to put others first, so that all may break bread with those they love over the holidays.”
This offering is free to community members who have filled out an application and qualify for assistance. For more information about the event, contact Emily V. Kittrell at 210-424-0892 or emily.kittrell@goodsamtx.org.
