I'd like to be able to send out occasional group text alerts via SMS blasts to a small set of people. I'd rather not use a standard group text message because I want everyone's individual number to be private. I don't want people to respond and bother everyone else on the list, so it seems like a tool that could send out several individual messages would be the right way to accomplish this need.

What options, if any, are available to accomplish this?

    If you want recommendations for a specific app, you better ask at our sister site for software recommendations (as those are off-topic here). I'm not aware that's possible with what "stock Android" ships with. Hint: Take a look at Wishy, which seems to meet your requirements. But asking for other means (as you've just done) is of course fine here :)

The Google Messages app can do most of other than process unsubscribes. Just go to settings, advanced, group messaging:
