Cards for Veterans

Project Description

This is the one day each year when Spartans world-wide coordinate to provide valuable services to our local communities. In the past, our club has had service projects at Habitat for Humanity, the San Antonio Food Bank, The Animal Defense League and The San Antonio Zoo. Due to COVID restrictions, serving in-person is not encouraged by the city or the university and our solution to that is a card campaign.

San Antonio is known as Military City, USA. Our great city has a high population of both active and retired military residents and many are Spartans. The Audie L. Murphy VA Medical Center provides a variety of services for the men and women that have honorably served our country. Some of these veterans have been isolated and separated from their families for the last year and are desperate for communication from the outside world. It would brighten their day to get a friendly card and read words of encouragement during this difficult time. To support this group safely and remotely, we will send greeting cards that will be distributed to veterans and their families when they are receiving treatment in the San Antonio area.

This project is meant for children, adults, friends and family, regardless of where they live! Feel free to share with your friends and family.
