Calling all of Bill’s Elves! We Need Your Help.
AFFCU has teamed up with KENS 5 Chief Meteorologist Bill Taylor to take on the Bill’s Elves project and make sure children get the supplies they need for a great start to the new school year.
As Back-to-School supplies start to filling the shelves at your everyday retail stores, soon parents will begin preparing to send their kids off for another school year. Yet, there are thousands of San Antonio-area children in the care of Child Protective Services due to abuse or neglect who can’t rely on the same help.
