As both individuals and as a company, the CIG Team believes that corporate responsibility is integral to being a successful business and an essential ingredient in maintaining a respected, trusted brand. Our culture puts people at the center of everything we do and to always think about the wider implications of our actions. Our reputation rests on our contribution to all the communities we operate in. Our company financially supports several organizations throughout the year. Our team volunteers time for several events and programs that impact the community.
Since 1941, The United Service Organizations, Inc. (USO) has acted as a bridge between the American people and our men and women in uniform around the world, celebrating 75 years of supporting our troops. Their mission is to strengthen America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation. USO San Antonio was established in 1942. It is one of the largest and most active Community Centers in the country operating four centers: downtown, airport, MEPS and Fort Sam Houston. Its growing programs are designed to meet the ever-changing needs of the military and their family members across our service delivery area.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. Troop 58 is located at the base of the Texas Hill Country. They are a very active troop with each patrol having a campout each month and quarterly troop campouts. They are one of the largest troops in the San Antonio area and this allows them the resources to do some exciting things. Since 2000, 77 scouts have achieved their Eagle Rank. They are role models for our younger scouts, setting the standard for our troop.
Special Olympics transforms lives through the joy of sport, every day, everywhere. They are the world’s largest sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities: with more than 4.9 million athletes in 172 countries — and over a million volunteers. Through the power of sports, people with intellectual disabilities discover new strengths and abilities, skills and success. Their athletes find joy, confidence and fulfillment — on the playing field and in life. They also inspire people in their communities and elsewhere to open their hearts to a wider world of human talents and potential.
