Haven for Hope Receives Major Gift from SA Auto Dealers and Texas Cavaliers
During SA Auto Dealers’ annual Dealers Aligned community giving campaign in October 2021, more than 30 participating area auto dealerships helped raise $50,000 for Haven for Hope, by donating $10 for every alignment provided to customers during the month. The funds raised far exceeded the organization’s goals. A generous matching grant from the Texas Cavalier Charitable Foundation added an extra $50,000, for a total gift of $100k to Haven for Hope.
The donation was presented to Haven for Hope’s Vice-Chair Barbara Gentry and VP & Chief Development Officer Celeste Eggert during a check presentation celebration at SADA Headquarters on November 23, 2021. The funds will help support important services provided to individuals and families in our community experiencing or facing homelessness.
“Due to the impact of the pandemic, there has never been a more important time to support Haven for Hope’s ongoing efforts to coordinate and deliver an efficient and compassionate system of care for people experiencing homelessness in our community,” said Pamela Crail, President of SA Auto Dealers. “Our members not only conduct business in San Antonio – this is their home.
