The previous Valet Giving Heroes class included eight San Antonio veterans, and the program has been competitive for the upcoming group of recipients, with more nominations than ever before. The current group of San Antonio veterans is comprised of men and women of all ages who have served in the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps with decades of service between them all. Valet Living is currently accepting nominations for the next class of veterans and military members that will be announced in November, National Veterans and Military Families Month.
“I really feel appreciated for my military service with all that Valet Living does for veterans. It feels good to have a ‘thank you,'” said Andrew Durbin, a retired sergeant in the program who works for the Army as a civilian now. “The associates are all phenomenal, and their support has allowed me to spend more time with my family. It’s so special to be a part of this community.”
A 2019 survey revealed that household chore fatigue grips more than half of U.S. Military members. Military members surveyed say chore relief would directly improve their happiness (58%), sleep (49%) and work performance (28%). These tasks prove to be an incredibly heavy burden on military members over the age of 45, with about a third of them spending more than six hours per week on chores. That equals at least 312 hours per year for one veteran or military member.
“It’s an honor that we’re in a position to give back to these veterans and service members that have given up so much for us,” said Shawn Handrahan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Valet Living. “I’m incredibly pleased to continue this program and offer support to San Antonio veterans living in our communities.”
