World Car Gives Back

For World Car, community is everything and we are always looking for an opportunity to give back to San Antonio. Over the last year, we have had the chance to do so with the military and the San Antonio Spurs. Here are a few of the special events and initiatives that World Car has powered.

Root For The Home Team

If there is one team that San Antonio locals will always rally behind, it’s the San Antonio Spurs, the five-time champion pro-basketball team. Supporting the team and bringing life to the AT&T Center during each home game are the
Spurs Silver Dancers. The squad is powered by World Car and performs during timeouts and the occasional halftime show.
And because of our commitment to the Spurs, World Car was able to host Meet The Cinco, an event that allowed our employees and a few Dynamo customers to meet the team’s five championship trophies. We invited the Alamo City community to compete for the chance to join us on Facebook and then selected five people to have an exclusive VIP photo shoot with the Cinco and the Silver Dancers. Our die-hard employees brought their families to the AT&T Center and met the Cinco together.

Committed Service

San Antonio is home to several military bases and organizations, giving it the proud nickname of Military City, U.S.A. And with these brave servicemen and women right in our backyard, World Car does everything we can to support, encourage, and remember them.

One small token of our appreciation occurred on Memorial Day 2014 with the launch of a special event called #WeRemember. We partnered with the Starbucks locations on Lackland and Randolph Air Force bases to provide free snacks and coffee to all servicemen and women. We also handed out Buddy Poppies and bookmarks that featured an excerpt from Moina Michael’s 1918 poem, “We Shall Keep The Faith.”
The Fourth of July is more than a day off of work and a fireworks show. And our Dynamos were reminded of that when we took over the Wounded Warrior & Family Support Center at Brooke Army Medical Center last year for an annual Family For the Fourth event. We celebrated our country and freedoms with 200 soldiers and their families and enjoyed barbecue, crafts, and music. Attendees were also given a free T-shirt and commemorative journal as smalls tokens of our appreciation.
World Car powered the 2014 Valor Games – Southwest in October 2014. The games were held at SeaWorld and Mission Concepcion Sports Park and gave wounded veterans the opportunity to compete for prizes and honors. Among the sports were archery, cycling, kayaking, and wheelchair basketball. This was the first time the event was hosted in our community and we look forward to continuing the fun for many years to come.

As Virgil Hill, a former Army Special Forces veteran told us during the event, “(These games) seem to help all of us and help us (better) function in society. I wasn’t doing anything before. I had my windows locked up at home. This has helped me be more engaging.”

After the honor of powering these events, World Car is hoping to take our partnership with the military community to new heights. In San Antonio, one in ten individuals is a veteran. And with our
Heroes Driving Heroes initiative, we will be able to make life a little easier on those who have risked theirs. This program will help transport our honored heroes to medical appointments, grocery stores, and other locations. It’s just one additional way we can help those who have already given us so much.
