The work of The Children’s Shelter changes children’s lives for the better! Through prevention and intervention in child abuse, neglect and abandonment we have given hope and healing to countless children and families in our community since 1901.
To continue to keep children and families safe and make their dreams come true, we need your support. We invite you to join us for The Children’s Shelter 10th Annual Give a Piece of Your Heart Luncheon & Bazaar on Wednesday, May 8th at the San Antonio Country Club. This is sure to be a very special event as we will be honoring Ms. Bonnie Korbell as the 2013 “Angel of the Shelter.”
Will you Give a Piece of Your Heart? For reservations, please contact Sherry Settles, Special Events Coordinator, at 212-2512 or
