Wounded Warrior Project
Delgado Travel Agency has provided a range of travel services, including package vacations and money exchange, for over four decades from its offices in three states. In terms of giving back, Delgado Travel Agency supports several charities, including the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), which helps injured military veterans make the often-difficult transition back into civilian life.
Though the WWP focuses primarily on domestic programs, it also provides international services at facilities such as Ramstein Air Base and Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LRMC) in Germany. In particular, the WWP offers comfort items such as jackets and blanket to wounded personnel who arrive at the LRMC, often the first place an injured serviceperson arrives at in Germany.
Beyond this, the WWP provides counseling and several programs via its Warrior Transition Units, which it has established throughout Europe. It also supports international doctors through a thank-you campaign that includes direct interaction with those the doctors have treated, and two appreciation lunches per year.
Ecuadorian Civic Committee
Based in Jackson Heights, New York, Delgado Travel Agency has been in business for more than 40. Delgado Travel Agency has numerous affiliates in Ecuador and Mexico, and it is committed to supporting the Ecuadorian community by maintaining membership in the Ecuadorian Civic Committee (ECC) of New York.
For more than 20 years, the ECC has served the Ecuadorian community in New York with a variety of services. The organization has developed and implemented a variety of education, health, and economic programs, such as immigrant rights seminars, computer training, English classes, and business development workshops. The ECC also actively defends economic policies that encourage Ecuadorian business development and community and political involvement.
Further, the ECC offers programs designed specifically to meet the needs of elderly individuals. It also is dedicated to promoting Ecuadorian cultural events, including sports exhibitions, the Queen of the ECC Pageant, Ecuadorian Heritage Month, the Ecuadorian parade, and the Artistic and Folkloric Ecuadorian Festival in Queens County.
For more than 40 years, Delgado Travel Agency has been offering travel to customers by providing comprehensive packages that take flights, hotels, rental cars, and money transfers into account. Delgado Travel Agency also supports a number of charities, including the Red Cross. One of the Red Cross’ most important initiatives is its blood drives, which are held throughout the United States.
The Red Cross states that somebody in the United States will need blood every two seconds, which creates a total of 36,000 units of red blood cells required daily in the country. A car accident victim may require as many as 100 pints of blood to be nursed back to health.
To confront this issue, the Red Cross offers people and other organizations the opportunity to host blood drives. All they need to do is find a suitable location, publicize the drive, and schedule appointments. The Red Cross handles the rest.
You can sign up to host a blood drive or find out about any that are near you by visiting redcrossblood.org.
Warriors to Work
During the course of more than 40 years of offering travel and money services to customers, Delgado Travel Agency has lent its support to a number of charitable initiatives. Among many other organizations, Delgado Travel Agency has contributed extensively to the Wounded Warrior Project. The Warriors to Work program is one of the most important initiatives created by the charity.
This program focuses on helping wounded veterans develop the skills they need to re-enter the workplace. Among its many services, it can help them develop their résumés, set realistic and attainable goals, prepare for job interviews, and connect with employers that may be able to offer opportunities.
The program also focuses on educating potential employers by making them aware of viable candidates while also educating them about combat-related injuries. The program also assists with the onboarding processes put in place by employers and aims to form long-lasting relationships with those who are committed to helping veterans find work.
