StandUp For Kids
November 30, 2012

I first found StandUp For Kids-San Antonio two years ago while looking for a charity to make a corporate donation to. My office arranged to do a hygein drive for them along with giving a monetary donation. When Janet Grigsby, Executive Director, came by to pick up the items and the check, we had a chance to spend some time talking about the organization. I was so impressed with her and their mission I immediately asked "How do I join?" In just a short period, I went from volunteer to Director of Apartment Support and when Janet stepped down as Executive Director in September, I became Co-Executive Director along with my daughter Madison. The determination and heart of everyone in our group is amazing. Everyday of every week throughout the year they are doing something to strive to accomplish our mission to help homeless and at-risk-youth on the streets of San Antonio, TX. I am proud to be affiliated with StandUp For Kids and to call everyone of the volunteers I serve with Friend.
