Mission of the Month - February

Northeast Senior Assistance, NESA, is a 501 C 3 non-profit organization. They began in 1984 when they realized that many citizens were isolated and had no one to help them. They welcome volunteers who want to “pay it forward” and connect with older people who have asked for help from the community.  Their mission is to reflect God’s Love by providing transportation and other services to enhance the quality of life and independence for seniors. Their services are free and help older adults continue to live in their own homes, around their familiar environment, which is where they want to be. Volunteers drive them to their doctor visits, remain with them during that time and then drive them home. Volunteers are vital to the success of this organization in addition to much-needed funds. Your support and contributions enable NESA to meet their mission to improve the lives of older people in their community!

To volunteer please contact (210) 967-6372.

  • The San Antonio Food Bank will distribute food on the first Thursday of each month in an effort to serve the projected 250 households with much needed food. Food insecurity is a reality. While Supplies Last, first come first serve.


    We ask for YOUR help. We need your plastic grocery bags (about 500 every month), volunteers to welcome and register our "neighbors", volunteers to bags groceries and help with getting these bags of food in cars as they drive through the food line. The food truck will arrive between 7:00 am-8:30 am and the food distribution will be from 9:00 -11:00 am. Please consider how you may help and see the ways the community comes together in times of need.
