Food Drive

Friends and Neighbors,

IHHA will be hosting a Food Drive for the Christmas Holidays.  This is something that we have done in the past and we thought it would be the perfect time to do it again.  It is inherent on all of us to be “thy brother’s keeper.”

 Many individuals and their families suffer in silence due to the lack of food in their pantry and on their table.  A large number of children go to school hungry every day.  The percentages are high that you may actually know someone and are unaware that they or their family have food shortage issues.  Many food banks and supporting agencies are at record lows of food supplies.  Time for us to step up.

If anyone person or family would like to donate food, I will be at IHHA park on Saturday, December 17th from 9a to noon to take your donations.  If you prefer to give a monetary donation, please make check payable to The San Antonio Food Bank.  If you are unable to come to the park next Saturday, reach out to me and I will come by your home and pick up your donation off of your front porch.

Here is a list of suggestive items to donate:

PEANUT BUTTER

CEREAL

TUNA 

SOUPS & CHILI

BEANS 

RICE

POP TOP FOOD ITEMS

CANNED LUNCH MEAT

MAC & CHEESE

FULL MEALS CAN / BOX

BABY FOOD & DIAPERS

PET FOOD

Thanking you in advance for your compassion and support.

Hazardous Waste and Medicine Drop-Off at The IHHA Park

Friends and Neighbors,

There will be a Household Hazardous Waste and Medicine Drop-Off Saturday, November 5th at IHHA Park, from 9:30 am to 11:00 am.  The items that can be turned in are outlined below.  It is so important to the environment that these items don’t wind up in the landfill or flushed down the toilet.

Please make sure that all paint can lids are on tight and that none of the items are leaking.  Please put these items in a box for easier transportation.

E-waste, such as computers, screens, printers and cords can be turned in as well.

Please empty all meds into a sealed zip lock baggie.  Items such as old vitamins and over-the-counter meds will be excepted.  Liquids, such as cough medicine can remain in the bottle.  This is your chance to get rid of expired or unused meds properly, without damage to the environment.

Please, no contractors.
