The GVTC Foundation made its support of the First Chance Foundation’s Rib’s & Rita’s fundraiser official with a check presentation for $5,000. Rib’s & Rita’s is the primary fundraiser for First Chance, whose mission is to support organizations dedicated to helping children in the Texas Hill Country and San Antonio area.
First Chance was founded and is operated by Clint Swindall, GVTC board of director, and his wife Heather. One of First Chance’s focus areas is helping children in foster facilities. They provide these youngsters comfort packages that include personal care items, such as toiletries, along with a stuffed animal and a bible. Clint and Heather were also instrumental in working with SJRC Texas (formally St. Jude’s Children’s Ranch) to build a recreation center featuring arcade video games and other fun activities to keep the kids entertained.
According to First Chance, 100 percent of donations it receives go back to supporting its mission. Learn more at firstchancefoundation.org.
