Meet Our Charity Partner
In mid-December, we launched our first-ever CultureMap San Antonio Charity Challenge in order to shine a light on our city’s much-needed nonprofits. Highlighting six local organizations and their impact on San Antonio, we released a series of mini-profiles to help you, our readers, decide which of them deserved to be our 2016 charity partner.
The poll has been tallied, and the organization that came out on top is Soldiers’ Angels with over 70 percent of the vote. By winning the 2016 Charity Challenge, Soldiers’ Angels will receive a CultureMap advertising package worth $10,000.
Soldiers' Angels works to support our nation’s veterans, wounded warriors, deployed service members, and their families. The nonprofit has supplied injured vets with more than 25,000 of its first-response backpacks at combat support hospitals in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Other programs, including Days for the Brave and Soldiers' Angels Adopt-a-Family, ensure the support of military families across the nation. With the help of donations, Soldiers' Angels has provided voice-controlled/adaptive laptops to more than 6,000 severely wounded service members.
Soldiers' Angels goes beyond the call of duty to give soldiers the assistance and care they deserve. We at CultureMap look forward to this Charity Challenge partnership and helping to further the nonprofit’s important work in our community.
