2018 marks the 15th Anniversary of Soldiers' Angels. To commemorate this milestone, we hosted an anniversary celebration in San Antonio, Texas on Friday, October 26, 2018— otherwise known as Day of the Deployed.
Volunteers, sponsors, donors, military service members, veterans, wounded heroes, military families and civilians came together to show their support for deployed service members and veterans of all eras by packing 15,000 care items in 15 hours: 5,000 Care Packages for Deployed, 5,000 Hygiene Kits for Veterans at VA Hospitals, and 5,000 Box Lunches for homeless veterans and for VA Caseworkers to hand out to veteran patients who may not know where their next meal is coming from.
A huge thank you to everyone who helped with this incredible event! We are so grateful for the outpouring of support we received for nation's heroes.
Care Packages require the largest investment. Utilizing USPS Flat Rate Mailing Boxes, items include: snacks, hygiene products, games, comfort items (socks, hats, etc.), puzzle books, etc. The cost to ship one box is also factored in.
Hygiene Kits include: shampoo, conditioner, razors, body wash, deodorant, lotion, hand sanitizer, tissues, anti-bacterial wipes, floss, lip balm, toothbrush, toothpaste, and a comb. Hygiene Kits items are packaged in a reusable zippered bag.
Box Lunches include: bottled water, single-serve powdered drink mix, ready-to-eat tuna or chicken salad kit, granola bar/cereal bar, fruit cup or squeeze fruit, crackers, trail mix, raisins, fruit snacks, beef jerky, utensil kit, and an anti-bacterial wipe.
