For 15 years, Soldiers' Angels has lived its mission to provide aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard, their families and a growing veteran population.

Thousands of Soldiers' Angels "Angel" volunteers make up the heart of the organization, dedicating their time and talent to supporting our nation's heroes and provide a wide range of support to deployed service members, wounded heroes, veterans, military families and veterans of all eras.

The Soldiers' Angels trademark is "May no soldier go unloved."

Soldiers' Angels Hunger Relief

Soldiers' Angels sponsors monthly mobile food distributions for veterans in need of hunger relief. Through a partnership with the Veterans' Administration (VA) and local food banks, Soldiers' Angels Hunger Relief Program provides up to 200 veteran families with approximately 50 pounds of food each.

The program has helped more than 8,000 veteran families in San Antonio, Texas; Atlanta, Georgia; Denver, Colorado; Charlotte, North Carolina; Detroit, Michigan; and Orlando, Florida. The organization plans to expand the Hunger Relief Program to other cities as the program continues to grow.

You can volunteer or sponsor the Hunger Relief Program at 210-629-0020 or by email at info@soldiersangels.org.
