Roy Maas Youth Alternatives Good Start Drive

What is Roy Maas Youth Alternatives?

RMYA provides abused, neglected, and at-risk children in San Antonio a safe, supervised residential setting where they receive counseling and 24 hour care.

What is the RYMA Good Start Drive?

The children usually arrive at RMYA with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Through the RMYA Good Start Drive, my helpers and I will purchase, collect, assemble, and distribute duffel bags packed with items these children need. My goal is to provide the following items for 100 children (ages 11 – 17):

•Duffel Bag•Twin Bed Sheet Setwith Comforter•Standard Size Pillow•Towel•Travel Size Shampoo and Conditioner•Travel Size Soap/Body Wash (like Axe)


How Can You Help?

You can make a big impact on these children by showing them there are others who care about them! The total cost of these items for each child is approximately $79. Now through September 30, 2019, you can help in the following ways:


1) You can donate any amount by clicking this donate button.

You can also mail or bring in a check to RMYA at 3103 West Ave., San Antonio, TX 78213. Please make the check out to RMYA and write “RMYA Good Start Drive” on the memo line. These funds will be used to purchase the Duffel Bags, Twin Bed Sheet Sets, and Pillows in bulk.
