Giving to Our Military

by jbragg | No Comments

TamekaThe Participants at the Arc of San Antonio decided that they wanted to give back to their community. They decided to donate to our soldiers in the Armed Forces that are stationed overseas. The Operation Interdependence program, which is run by the National Charity League is a civilian-to-military delivery system that serves as a program for Americans to demonstrate their support for our deployed military. For the next three months, The Arc will be collecting supplies that will be sent to the soldiers. If you have any questions about donating supplies to our soldiers, please feel free to contact Ms. Annette Centeno (210) 490-4300, extension 106 or

Please bring your donations for our soldiers to the Arc’s West Avenue location(13430 West Avenue, 78216)
