How You Can Help

We will be collecting items to support the residential services RMYA provides. They are specifically in need of the following:

  • Sports Bras – youth girl and women’s ( probably best as a gift card )
  • Bedding (twin) – Fitted Sheets, Pillowcases, Comforters
  • Hygiene Supplies
    • Women’s feminine products
    • Any size deodorant
    • Full size body lotion (no bar soaps)
    • Full size shampoo and conditioner
    • Combs
    • Ethnic hair products
    • Facial cleansers
  • Sensory Items
    • Fidget spinners
    • Stress Balls
    • Weighted neck “stuffies” scented and non scented
    • Stretch bands
    • Finger puppets
    • Calming Strips (anxiety sensory stickers)
  • Gift Cards – Walmart- we could make sure we have the right sizes for winter clothing, and the kids can pick out what they want.
  • Fun Board Games – for ages 5 and up
  • RMYA also accepts financial donations to support their services.

We’re working to have a representative of RMYA come speak to us about their programs and how they support the San Antonio underserved community. Thank you for any help you can provide.
