The San Jose Earthquakes love to give back to their local community, but are now widening their gaze to help out folks across the country.
The Quakes proudly announced on Thursday that they will partner with the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization designed to help wounded servicemen and women returning from war, via their facebook page. With every 'like' that the Quakes get on their page the team will donate $1 dollar to the foundation, and when they reach 40,000, they'll double their donation to $2.
Make the jump to learn more about this awesome cause undertaken by the Earthquakes.
WWP is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization centered in Jacksonville, FL with offices in New York City and Washington D.C. Originally founded in Roanoke, Va. by a group of veterans and friends, the WWP helps injured service men and women of this generation returning from war abroad.
Here's what Quakes President David Kaval had to say about their new partnership:
"At this time when the United States is preparing to celebrate its independence, the Earthquakes organization wanted to do its part to benefit the brave men and women who put their lives on the line to keep this country safe. [The] Wounded Warrior Project does an amazing job of working with veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and we are excited to make a donation to their cause."
