Staff from MCH Family Outreach in San Antonio celebrated its community and families this month during events at local nonprofits.
On Nov. 7 MCH Family Outreach in San Antonio attended the grand opening of the new Texas Diaper Bank headquarters located at 1803 Grandstand Dr. Suite 150. The new facility is 30,000 square feet and will allow for the Texas Diaper Bank to continue offering diaper assistance to families in need in Bexar County.
MCH Family Outreach in San Antonio formed a partnership with Texas Diaper Bank which allows diaper assistance to families being served through Family Solutions and GAP programs. Participants of parent education classes are also provided diaper assistance for their infants and toddlers as an incentive for class participation.
“Families being served by MCH Family Outreach have been grateful for the diaper assistance made possible through our partnership with the Texas Diaper Bank,” said Melissa Arroyo, director of MCH Family Outreach in San Antonio.
On Nov.9, San Antonio staff members spent the morning giving back to their community by volunteering at The DoSeum, San Antonio’s Museum for Kids. The mission of The DoSeaum states, “Through joyful learning and discovery, The DoSeum grows minds, connects families, and transforms communities.”
MCH staff were assigned to separate exhibits throughout the museum and assisted San Antonio children in attendance from class field trips. Ages of children ranged from infants to school-aged. MCH staff assisted in Little Town, Spy Academy, and Dream Tomorrow Today exhibits.
“It was a great opportunity to give back to the San Antonio community and staff enjoyed sharing in the children’s time during their visit to The Doseum,” Arroyo said.
