“Help Ma Harper Stay Cool” Campaign a Huge Success

Written by on June 26, 2018

After the awful cliché of the air conditioner breaking down just in time for Summer Solstice and the onset of South Texas 90 to 100 degree weather, longtime restaurateur and community legend Alice “Ma” Harper of Ma Harper’s Creole Kitchen on the Eastside of San Antonio received overwhelming support to keep her doors open and customers cool.

The community stepped up by raising most of the money within one day of the formation of the GoFundMe account “Help Ma Harper Stay Cool.” Within four days, 28 donors raised more than the goal of $2,500, the amount needed, for the costly ac unit repairs.

For decades, Ma Harper has been giving back the community by helping and donating to many non-profit organizations, feeding the homeless, feeding people after they have been released from jail, hiring formerly incarcerated individuals, as well as being active with her church community.
