This year AMPP’s members team up to volunteer at St. Jude’s Ranch for Children (SJRC, San Antonio, Texas) community with a sustainable activity to its development and care. 
St. Jude’s Ranch for Children in San Antonio, TX, assists children and families who have been affected by trauma, abuse and neglect, and have been removed from their homes by the Department of Family and Protective Services.
AMPP Volunteers may assist the institution in two ways:

1- Hands on!
Date: Saturday, March 5, 2022
Time: 8:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

On March 5th  a group of volunteers will perform gardening services at SJRC Texas. For this one you must sign up!

We will meet at Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center no later than 8:00 a.m., as we plan to head out by 8:10 a.m., and drive a short distance to the St. Jude’s site.
Some duties include: Mulching, bush clearing and picking up trash/debris at St. Jude’s ranch’s green area.
We ask that you wear articles of clothing that you don't mind getting dirty and/or messing up. Gloves are recommended too. 

2- Let's donate!
