Silver & Black Give Back, the nonprofit partner for Spurs Sports & Entertainment’s family of teams, is excited to celebrate our 25th anniversary with you! We are honored and grateful to everyone who has participated in our programs over the last 25 years, and we are especially grateful to donors – like our Silver Circle partners – who continue to invest in our youth sports and youth led service initiatives. Thank you for making this anniversary so special.
Our programs give youth the opportunity to impact our community – through character leadership and education based service projects. We are continually amazed at the work our youth accomplish. Two years ago, the Johnson High School Key Club participated in the inaugural year of the Team Up Challenge, one of our premiere initiatives. Throughout the school year the club volunteered at the San Antonio Food Bank and researched the benefits of home gardens. Lauren Tsai, their junior president, was a Parade All-American finalist for her leadership in the fight against childhood hunger.
The Johnson High School Key Club was one of five Team Up Challenge Champions to receive a $20,000 award. The group donated their winnings to the San Antonio Food Bank. Through their work they were able to feed over 4,000 children.
But the service of the Key Club is just one of many stories. Students involved in the Team Up Challenge – now in its third year – have volunteered over 12,000 hours on projects focusing on issues like hunger, bullying, obesity, diabetes, college readiness, refugee assimilation, stray animal rescue, literacy and teen driver safety.
