Thanksgiving is a time when families come together, expressing gratitude for all their blessings. Here in the Texas Hill Country, that’s not a foreign concept to each of us, but for some, it’s a little bit harder to express in the traditional sense. The cost to feed a family isn’t getting any cheaper, especially if we’re talking about a Thanksgiving feast. Fortunately, there are some great Hill Country people willing to lend a hand and see to it that every family has a joyful Thanksgiving. That’s why the GVTC Foundation was developed. Based in Spring Branch, Texas, GVTC’s philanthropic arm is employee-driven. They focus on improving the quality of life for those in the communities they serve, and they do so by volunteering throughout the year, providing support, and making efforts to give back. No event is larger on their radar right now than Thanksgiving. That’s because they work to feed entire families during the holiday each year.

Through the GVTC Foundation’s annual Thanksgiving Giveback, the employees become deeply involved with the communities they serve. They take food donations and raise funds to purchase Thanksgiving meals, which they package and personally deliver to families in need. By partnering with local food pantries such as Blanco Good Samaritan, Hope Center, Provisions, CRRC, Habitat for Safe Seniors, Hill Country Family Services, Helping Hands, and Gonzales Christian Assistance Ministries, they work to address a list of local families’ needs, including a full frozen turkey and all the traditional trimmings.

To do this, the GVTC Foundation always welcomes community members and youth to consider donating throughout the year. High school students, sports teams, and youth groups who would like to work toward completing their community service hours are invited to connect with the organization and volunteer. Individuals, families, and groups can learn more by emailing [email protected] with any questions, or contact Sonia Aguillon at her direct line, which is (830) 885-8205.
