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?

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.
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.

If you've been following our story over the past several weeks, you probably know that we had a very generous donor who provided a whole pallet of toilet paper for us to share with our supporters. With so many people facing the challenge of finding toilet paper and the many inspiring stories circulating the internet about how people are sharing their toilet paper from quarantine (or doing silly things like building toilet paper obstacle courses for their pets), we thought it would be fun to encourage our supporters to decide if they would "share the care" or keep the entire pallet for themselves... which, with 1,920 rolls of toilet paper included, is basically a lifetime supply!!
This May, as we recognize and remember those who have served in all branches of the military, we want to give you a chance to give back to our nation’s heroes. The following veterans’ nonprofit organizations support military servicemembers, veterans, and their families. Full story here
School districts, small businesses, and major retail companies have been forced to adapt and adjust how they conduct operations and serve their customers amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Similarly, veteran service organizations must adjust their support tactics now and for months to come, especially if their goal is to reach the most vulnerable among the veteran population.
