With Atlanta’s distribution event taking place every month, the organization is need of volunteers to help with the food distribution drive. Additionally, companies and organizations can support the event by sponsoring and even have employees volunteer.
Soldiers’ Angels was founded in 2003 by the mother of two American soldiers. It aims to provide aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, their families, and the growing veteran population. With its hundreds of thousands of Soldiers’ Angels “Angel” volunteers, the organization assists veterans, wounded and deployed personnel and their families in a variety of unique and effective ways.
“The vision behind Soldiers’ Angels is ‘May No Soldier Go Unloved’,” added Sarracino. “Our hope with this event is to reach the low-income veterans and let them know that they are loved and appreciated for the sacrifices they have made in service to our country.”
