You made your list, shopped during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and may already have everything wrapped up and ready for under the tree. Like Santa, we encourage you to check your list twice, and add one more gift this holiday season: a charitable gift for military families in need.

We’re fortunate here at San Antonio Shoemakers to have opportunities to give back to those make sacrifices for our freedom. As our CEO, Nancy Richardson, says, “Our pride as a US manufacturer is dwarfed by the gratitude we have to those servicemen and women, both past and present, that safeguard the freedoms we enjoy each day.”

SAS recently worked with Operation Homefront which, as their website states, helps military families “get RELIEF during a crisis, a place to RECOVER if you need it and a little bit of RECOGNITION for a life of sacrifice.” This year, SAS customers contributed to this cause by purchasing SAS shoes during our American Pin promotion (read more here) in which part of the proceeds were passed on to military families through Operation Homefront. We also teamed up with the organization to help one thousand military families eat a big meal this Thanksgiving.

We thank those of you that helped us this year by volunteering or participating in our promotion. However, the help doesn’t have to stop there. Check out the Operation Homefront website to find more ways you can help. Whether donating money or volunteering your time, you can help make a difference. What a perfect way to give a gift in honor of that person on your list who already has everything.

Maybe just one little gift can be enough to help someone else to Keep Moving this holiday season.
