SAN ANTONIO, March 15, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) will open its doors in San Antonio for a special luncheon in honor of "Big Give" day. This yearly fundraising event gives San Antonio residents a chance to support their favorite charities. Attendees will be able to see the San Antonio office up close, meet staff, and hear from Army veteran Deven Schei about how WWP empowered him during his recovery.
"The communities where our warriors live and work have a significant role in their recoveries," said Gary Corless, WWP chief development officer. "Members of the community interact daily with the injured service members we serve, and they see the need is great and growing. That perspective gives them a chance to understand some of the challenges warriors face when returning to civilian life, but also where they can support those Wounded Warrior Project serves. Events like Big Give San Antonio make a significant difference. We're extremely grateful for the past generosity of the San Antonio community and are excited about this year's event."
From 12:00 am until 11:59 pm on March 22, supporters can visit this website to donate to WWP. Their generosity will make it possible for wounded warriors to take part in connection opportunities and benefit from program resources at no cost to them. Results from the 2017 WWP Annual Warrior Survey illustrate the importance of connection at WWP outreach events. To learn more, click here.
