Throughout the year, BCMS Alliance members engage in several projects
to promote healthier lifestyles in Bexar County.
Through Be Wise Immunize, we provide vaccination education to Bexar County children.
Through Hard Hats for Little Heads, we provide hundreds of free bicycle helmets to
Bexar County children in order to prevent traumatic brain injury.
well-deserving Bexar County college students pursuing careers in an Allied Health field
(e.g. nursing, pharmacy, optometry, physical therapy, etc.).
In addition to these major annual philanthropies, BCMS Alliance also participates in
smaller fundraisers, collection drives, and projects. For a past Doctor's Day, we fundraised for Project Brave.
We also partnered with Sisters in Sobriety for our Adopt at Rack Program to place free racks of
Alcoholics Anonymous literature in local doctors' offices.
With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have shifted to drives to fill voids in the community. In the spring, we organized a PPE Drive to address the shortage of personal protection equipment for area medical staff, and then in June, teamed up with the Mitchell Chang Foundation to distribute thousands of masks to areas highest hit by COVID-19.
Junior Volunteer Council (JVC) is a great way for teenagers to help their community while earning
volunteer hours. This group is composed of the teenage children and grandchildren
of BCMS Alliance and BCMS members.
