On August 20th, Mission City Firm hosted our first annual school supply drive for local students in need. The school supply drive took place during the Mission City Firm Tailgate party preceding the match between San Antonio FC and Seattle Sounders 2. It was a hugely successful drive. Among items that were donated were packs of loose leaf paper, spiral notebooks, folders, rulers, pens & pencils, crayons, markers, glue, and many other useful items for young students.
MCF members Christopher Drew and Eric Rios both spearheaded the drive, and have indicated that there are further plans for other community drives. Plans are being developed to feed the homeless with post tailgate food leftovers, as well as The Firm volunteering at the San Antonio Food Bank as a group. We are open to any ideas to help the surrounding community as well.
We sincerely thank everyone for their donations!
