Transcom Cares creates memorable experiences for children in San Antonio
The Transcom Cares team in San Antonio, Texas has once again teamed up with Spurs Sports and Entertainment, sponsoring hundreds of tickets for the Boys and Girls Club and the YMCA to attend the San Antonio Stars basketball game. Since April, we have had the great pleasure of organizing three events for the community, with one AHL San Antonio Rampage game, and two WNBA San Antonio Stars games.
Our last WNBA event provided 100 tickets to employees and the community, but the San Antonio Stars game was our biggest event yet, with 150 tickets going to children and their families in the community. The children we have supported are as young as 5 and as old as 14, and all come from under-privileged areas of San Antonio. These are all families without the means to participate in this kind of event on their own. It was an amazing event, and we even were able to organize a meet and greet with San Antonio Stars Forward, Sophia Young-Malcolm! All attendees signed our Transcom Cares banner that we will be proudly showcasing at our site, along with the three signed San Antonio Spurs jerseys to highlight our partnership with Spurs Sports and Entertainment!
Transcom San Antonio has been working with The Boys and Girls Club, Big Brothers Big Sisters, YMCA and The Wounded Warrior Project for these events. In addition, the San Antonio Transcom Cares committee hosted a bake sale in May, donating over $1,100 to the Battered Children and Children Shelter. The quote below is just one of the countless “Thank You’s” the team received during the event:
“Thank you and the Transcom team for allowing my son's basketball team to watch The Silver Stars from your suite. The team practices a few miles from the AT&T Center. Most of the kids live on the East Side and lack the resources to attend events there, much less watch from a suite! Our kids felt welcome. Some won prizes. All of them had a fun, memorable experience thanks to Transcom's generosity! On behalf of the team and coach, thanks.”
"Knowing that we are making memorable experiences in these kids’ lives is what Transcom Cares is all about" says Michael Moxley, Director of Client Services, Transcom North America.
