Partnership with The Salvation Army San Antonio Area Command

Extreme Escape Gives Back: Christmas Partnership with The Salvation Army in San Antonio, TX

Extreme Escape is all about giving back. We love giving our San Antonio escape room guests an experience they’ll never forget. We enjoy giving our employees a positive work environment where they can thrive. And we are always looking for ways to give back to our local community.

Extreme Escape gives back on a very personal level by inviting our local heroes to come play an escape room in San Antonio for free every Monday. It’s our way of showing appreciation for the risks military members, police, firefighters and EMTs take to protect everyone else.

But that’s not enough. San Antonio has given us so much, we want to do more. That’s why we’ve started teaming up with The Salvation Army San Antonio Area Command. Helping out this worthy organization during the holidays is easily one of our favorite ways of giving back to the community.

Many members of our team get involved personally, and during December we offer guests a special discount PLUS we donate $5 from every ticket sold to the Salvation Army’s Christmas programs. The programs make the holidays happier for thousands of San Antonio children and their families.

It’s just one way Extreme Escape is helping bring joy and fun to San Antonio!

All About The Salvation Army Angel Tree Program

The Angel Tree Program is one of the Salvation Army’s biggest events of the year. It was started in 1979 by a couple in Virginia. Charles and Shirley White had local kids write their Christmas wishes on a card that had pictures of angels. The cards were then put on a tree at the local mall so that shoppers could pick a child in need and donate the wish list items. In the first year alone more than 700 kids were given a merrier Christmas.

The Whites kept the giving tradition going after moving to Nashville several years later. It was there that the Angel Tree Program, as it was then known, got national attention. Today, The Salvation Army is the sponsor and arranges Angel Tree programs across the country every year.
