The Schertz Professional Firefighters Association is lending a helping hand in their community to those in need. Members of the association voted unanimously to release funds to the public to assist in relief efforts.
Three SPFA members went to an H-E-B store in Schertz on Wednesday and handed out $1,000 worth of gift cards to customers standing in line outside of the store.
In addition to the H-E-B gift cards, the SPFA also donated an additional $1,000 on Friday to two locally-owned restaurants. Mattenga’s Pizzeria and Garcia’s Mexican Restaurant received $500 each from the SPFA.
SPFA said Garcia’s matched their donation and made meals for people in need. The restaurant also made sure the donated funds from the SPFA also went toward helping the community.
