San Antonio-based Thrive Youth Center is getting a helping hand via three local sweet shops this Pride Month.

Thrive supplies homeless LGBTQ+ youth with safe living quarters, meals, showers, laundry facilities and hygiene supplies. One of only two LGBTQ-specific emergency shelters in Texas, the organization also provides access to resources to help young adults gain self-sufficiency and end their homelessness.

During June, Thrive aims to raise $20,000 to carry on in its mission. If you’re looking for a worthwhile way to help it toward that goal, three local sweet shops have debuted out-and-proud treats that will benefit the center.
