The COVID-19 pandemic has changed everyone’s lives drastically. Families are home, healthcare workers are spending countless hours providing care, businesses are closed, and more service members have been called to duty to support the ongoing Coronavirus efforts. Despite these restrictions, we still have a vulnerable veteran population who needs the support we provide on a monthly basis. Thanks to our dedicated staff, volunteers, and multiple donors, Soldiers’ Angels has been able to adapt to these challenges so we can still offer support in a safe way for our veterans. Here’s a look at how we’ve shifted support within our veteran programs.

On August 7, 1782, General George Washington - then the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army - established the Purple Heart award, originally designated as the Badge of Military Merit.
Every year, on August 7, the Nation celebrates Purple Heart Day, to honor and commemorate those brave service members. The Purple Heart has existed in its current form since 1932, and is awarded to service members "wounded or killed in any action against an enemy of the United States or as a result of an act of any such enemy or opposing armed forces." It was designed by Elizabeth Will, an Army heraldic specialist in the Office of the Quartermaster General.

Salt Lake City, UT -- Black Rifle Coffee Company (BRCC), America’s leading Veteran-owned and operated premium, small-batch coffee roastery, is teaming up with Operation Supply Drop and Soldiers’ Angels to deliver more than 30,000 bags of fresh, roast-to-order coffee to troops serving overseas, veterans, and active reserves.
The delivery comes at the culmination of BRCC’s Independence Day “Buy a Bag, Give a Bag” campaign, a BRCC community-powered initiative designed to serve those who serve America. For every purchase of BRCC’s limited release Liberty Roast -- a medium-bodied coffee with hints of almond, honey, grapefruit, minimal acidity, and maximum freedom -- BRCC is donating a bag to deployed servicemen and women.
Charleston, S.C. – WCBD – 17,000 pounds of meat, fruit, and vegetables were distributed to 250 veteran families Wednesday by Soldiers Angels, a non-profit started by a mother of two soldiers to support veterans. Each veteran and family that attended the distribution received 75 pounds of food which included bread, canned goods, and pastries.
For many, helping those who need it just comes naturally. But for others, that drive is born out of a need to heal.
For Marine Corps veteran Dustin Bird, helping other veterans find food during this pandemic is his biggest mission lately.
Due to the current health crisis, neither family members nor volunteers are able to visit with hospitalized veterans in VA facilities. To help engage the veteran patients and ensure they do not feel isolated and alone, Soldiers' Angels has donated tablets and other devices to the Atlanta VA so that veterans can visit with family members and volunteers virtually.
But now we need your help to fill those volunteer positions and visit with hospitalized veterans via video chat. Can you spare 30 minutes of your day to visit a veteran?
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to look differently at how we support service members, veterans, and military families. As the needs of each of these communities has shifted, we have done our best to pivot to be able to support them. We definitely couldn’t do it alone, which is why we would like to honor several businesses and organizations who helped provide much needed resources so that we could continue to serve our military.
Here at Soldiers’ Angels, we are a team composed of many different personalities from different backgrounds, all with a common goal - to support our nation’s military, veterans, and their families. Sandy Carter is one of our remarkable volunteers who recently won the Volunteer of the Year Award from the VA’s National Advisory Council. Get to know her and what she does at Soldiers’ Angels.
