Each of our communities is affected by different orders, but as a company, we are actively supporting our employee’s comfort level and well-being. Most offices are closed to the public and employees are working from home. Our teams are well-versed in utilizing digital tools to support property owners, maintain business operations and answer questions.
We recognize our company’ s unique ability to connect our residents and the larger community. Through communications, at-home events and providing opportunities for residents to feel involved in philanthropic efforts, SouthStar is living our mission, Shaping Healthy Communities for Life. Here are a few examples;
Neighbors for New Braunfels
The New Braunfels and San Antonio Food Banks have been tremendously stretched, seeking to serve more families in need. SouthStar created the Neighbors for New Braunfels program to allow our employees and property owners to help these critical services. To date we have donated over 96,000 meals to the New Braunfels Food Bank through this program. To donate, click here .
Canyon Lake EMS Food Delivery
Knowing that our local EMS and first responders are busy and cannot make or receive food donations at this time, developer SouthStar Communities and Vintage Oaks residents have been providing meals for all of the areas EMS stations.
Classic Car Parade
Mission del Lago residents brought out their classic (and not so classic) cars and motorcycles to parade through the community. It was a welcome sight for many families as they adjusted to the Stay at Home orders.
Residents have been painting rocks in the form of animals, artwork or inspirational sayings to create a great discovery for those practicing social distancing on our 5 miles of trails. Gallery here
Developer SouthStar Communities sponsored a webinar hosted by the South San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, explaining the various small business resources available to area resident business owners and answering their questions.
Bulverde Food Pantry
Residents quickly heeded the call to supplement the local food pantry when the ISD closed, recognizing the many families left in need.
