Drive-through Donations at The Tobin Center
The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts and its many employees were also quick on the draw to help those who needed it most. Tobin Cares, an employee-based community outreach volunteer initiative of the Tobin Center, set up an all-day drive through donation station in front of the Tobin itself. The curb-side drop off site was manned by both Tobin employees and volunteers. The proceeds of this 10-hour event produced a total of seven carloads of donated items and $3460 in cash and gift cards. All items were then driven to the San Antonio Food Bank the following day. The number of involved citizens and their donations shows the willingness of the San Antonio community to help and support their neighbors.
