St. Luke’s Episcopal School of San Antonio has helped Good Samaritan Community Services in this academic year through a partnership with Silver & Black Give Back, the nonprofit partner of the San Antonio Spurs Sports and Entertainment family of teams.

The partnership enabled middle-school students to help with landscaping and painting projects on Good Samaritan’s campus in San Antonio and at the homes of some senior clients.

Silver & Black Give Back sponsors Team Up Challenge, a youth-led service program that allows students to apply what they are learning in the classroom to the world outside of school. The school may win an additional $20,000 from Team Up Challenge, depending on how many people vote for it.
