Franchising Gives Back

For all Franchisees, Franchisors and Supplier members of IFA.

The Franchising Gives Back Volunteer Activity will take place Friday, Feb 19, 2016 from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm at the Warrior and Family Support Center(WFSC), part of the Brook Army Medical Center in San Antonio, TX. The Warrior and Family Support Center (WFSC) provides coordinated services to patients, next-of-kin and extended Family Members with a primary focus on Wounded Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom Warriors. It provides a friendly, comfortable environment in which to take a break, watch a movie on big-screen TVs, play video games, check email or use the Internet, select a book or magazine to read, make a phone call, or just grab a cup of coffee.

Franchising Gives Back Volunteers will have the opportunity to provide encouragement to veteran patients and their families by helping to maintain and beautify the surrounding grounds of the WFSC facility with gardening and grounds maintenance. To help volunteers be safe in the gardens, gardening gloves will be provided.

Wounded Warriors and their Family Members visit the WFSC to maintain contact with other military members or extended Family Members, to receive emotional support, answers to their questions, and to extend their rehabilitation away from the hospital. The rehabilitation involves learning to cope with war related disabilities as individuals, as couples, and as families.
