Methodist Healthcare Ministries Sponsors United Communities of San Antonio 62nd Awards Dinner

Texas is ranked third in the country with more than 57 active extremist and hate groups. In one study, 49 percent of children in grades 4-12 reported being bullied by students at school at least once during the past month. Because individuals still suffer from bullying, exclusion, hatred, harassment and violence, Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas, Inc. has contributed $2,500 to be a Silver Sponsor at the 62nd Annual Brotherhood/Sisterhood Awards Dinner of the United Communities of San Antonio, a human relations non-profit organization dedicated to fighting bias, bigotry, prejudice and racism in San Antonio.
