Alliance Data’s charitable gift will help transform the new San Antonio Food Bank
At Alliance Data, giving back to the communities in which we live in work is one of our core values. Our associates dedicate their time—and resources—to serve so many important causes and organizations.
In the spirit of living out our “Give Back” value, Alliance Data recently donated $500,000 to the new San Antonio Food Bank location in New Braunfels, Texas.
Our CPC and Collections Center is in the area the new food bank serves, and it provides a huge opportunity for our associates to volunteer and continue to help this community. We’ve had a longstanding relationship with the San Antonio Food Bank, and we’re honored to support a partner we’ve worked with for so long with this transformational gift.
We’re expanding together—and we have so much to celebrate.
This facility will be a second location for the food bank, and our gift will make a big difference for the community and for our organization, too. The donation also supports our San Antonio Care Center expansion announced this month. The location celebrated with a ribbon cutting on Sept. 14 to commemorate this new chapter in our Grow Together story.
Our Care Center’s culture of caring is strong, and it has been for years. Collections Operations Manager Roger Amore serves on the advisory board for the New Braunfels Food Bank and fully embraces our “Give Back” value.
“Our team here is so dedicated to helping out in the community—and this gift will give us even more opportunities be involved,” says Amore. “Although I’ve served on the New Braunfels Food Bank advisory board for a short time I have been able to witness the difference this donation has made already. I can’t wait to see how far it goes to support our community.”
And this gift will give people in the community access to more than food.
The new food bank will provide numerous benefits, including:
- Help with enrollment of public benefits
- Commercial kitchen where meals for children and seniors will be prepared (which Alliance Data got to name in commemoration of the gift)
- Culinary training program for unemployed individuals seeking employment in the food-service industry
- Community garden and green house
- Multi-purpose event space for fitness classes, community meetings, financial literacy classes, and more
The grand opening of the new food bank was September 20 at 10 a.m. Stay tuned for more news about the great work being done in San Antonio and our other Care Centers and communities.
