Review for San Antonio Junior Forum, San Antonio, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The San Antonio Junior Forum provides wonderful opportunities for its members to volunteer in service to the community and to work with other non-profits, as well. As a retired teacher I loved the Children's Art Project at the Southwest School of Art Fiesta event where we worked with children helping them discover their own art talents. Hey, Mom, I made a Fiesta medal! I painted a water color! I made my own sculpture!
It is a special privilege and an honor to prepare a home for a family transitioning from the Battered Women's Shelter, and seeing the delight in a high school graduating senior's eyes as we hand out that one-year tuition scholarship is a reward all its own. I admire the continuing work of fellow members and friends in servicing the requests of smaller non-profits with grants for equipment and supplies. My heart was warmed when I saw the appreciation of the women who prepare meals for those in need when they received a much needed new stove. The San Antonio Junior Forum provides valuable services and funds to a broad spectrum of our community.
