Celebrate the Season with SABA & SABF — help support the Bexar County Children’s Court!
Come enjoy a special meal with the San Antonio Bar Association and the San Antonio Bar Foundation at our annual holiday luncheon on Thursday, December 12.
Attendees are encouraged to bring an unwrapped, new or gently used toy for the Children’s Court on the third floor of the Bexar County Courthouse. In addition to stocking the children’s educational/play room with toys and computers so that children can keep up with their schoolwork, the Children’s Courts also have an ongoing need for children’s toys and gift items. If a child is enthralled with a book or has fallen in love with a stuffed animal, that item is given to the child upon departure. Each child who goes through the court system is also given a gift bag containing age-appropriate toys, snacks and books. For this year’s toy drive, the Children’s Court has requested a few specific items:
- Stuffed animals
- Educational games
- Costume/dress-up clothes
- Computer games
- Animated DVDs
- DVDs appropriate for toddlers/very young children
There is also a particular need for gift items for older children, such as books, craft supplies and gift cards. If you’d prefer to give a monetary gift, please make it payable to SABA, and we will use the money to purchase gift cards to be used in these gift bags. Please help us make this our best toy drive yet!
