   12,202.6 pounds of food ($1 = 10#)
     8,542    meals for hungry families ($1 = 7 meals).

Thanks to all who helped.  Your donations are being used now to help those in need in the 13 counties served by the San Antonio Food Bank.  They are also helping victims of Hurricane Harvey as the San Antonio Food Bank steps up to help while the Houston area food bank is overwhelmed.
