Wounded Warrior Project Challenges San Antonio Community to Give Big

SAN ANTONIO, May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- San Antonio residents will have a chance to rally behind local community foundations and support their favorite charity on May 4. "Big Give" is returning to San Antonio, and Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) will be among the nonprofits registered to participate in the 24-hour online giving challenge.

WWP serves warriors through programs that assist them with mental health, physical health and wellness, career and benefits counseling, connecting warriors with one another and their communities, and long-term care for the most seriously wounded. Programs and resources are free of charge to those WWP serves thanks to generous donors. Warriors are empowered to live life on their own terms, mentor fellow veterans and service members, and embody the WWP logo by carrying one another along a path toward recovery.

"In many ways, the communities where our warriors live and work can have a significant lasting impact on their recovery," said Gary Corless, WWP chief development officer. "Community members interact with these injured veterans daily and see their needs. That gives them a chance to understand some of the challenges warriors face when returning to civilian life, but also where they can support that Wounded Warrior Project serves. Events like Big Give San Antonio can make all the difference; we're extremely grateful for the past generosity of the San Antonio community. We're excited for this year's event, with the community once again helping fuel Wounded Warrior Project's mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors."
