Caring for America

Volunteer Opportunities

Besides donating thousands of volunteer hours to our political candidates, Alamo City Republican Women participates in numerous charitable endeavors under the umbrella of Caring for America.

* We have supported our troops since the war began, first by sending requested items needed in Iraq and now by supporting our injured troops and their families through the Soldier and Family Assistance Center at Fort Sam Houston. We have purchased hundreds of dollars worth of calling cards so the soldiers can call their families. We have also donated individually-wrapped snacks, magazines and we have held pizza parties. The next party is planned for December.

* Our Christmas project is collecting diapers for the Pregnancy Care Center.

* There are volunteer opportunities caring for children on Tuesday evenings at the SAMM Transitional Center.

* For the past two years we have donated over 500 pairs of children's socks to the SAMM Transitional Center in December.

* We participate in the Mamie Eishower Library Project by donating books with a conservative bent to High School libraries.

* Last year we donated over 500 k-5 children's new and gently-used books to the SAMM Transitional Center and will do so again this year.

* We support the local A.L.S. Foundation.
