SAWS Cares : Utility Launches New Volunteer Initiative


San Antonio Water System employees are community minded. They volunteer with nonprofits, serve on school boards, coach Little League and lead neighborhood associations. You might say being involved in the community is in their DNA.

That’s why SAWS has launched SAWS Cares, a new initiative to engage employees collectively — instead of individually — in the San Antonio community. SAWS Cares is about raising the bar as a corporate citizen and working together to better the community we serve.

The theme of SAWS Cares is “leading, serving, giving.” SAWS Cares teams will participate in volunteer, charity and community engagement opportunities throughout the year and across the city.

“Whether it’s rolling up our sleeves to beautify San Antonio or supporting a philanthropic cause, SAWS wants San Antonio to know we are here to support our great community,” said Gavino Ramos, SAWS vice president of communications and outreach.

In their first outing under the SAWS Cares banner, employees and their families wielded paint brushes, hoes and hammers to help restore and revitalize an entire city block in the historic East Side neighborhood of Denver Heights during Rehabarama, May 13. SAWS was a foundation sponsor for the single-day event.

A few other causes SAWS Cares volunteers have scheduled include: Stuff the Bus in August, Chalk it Up in October and the Raul Jimenez Thanksgiving Dinner.

“SAWS Cares is a great way for SAWS to give back to our community,” added Ramos.
