The Women Marines Association is proud to partner with Soldiers’ Angels in taking care of our military members and veterans.
Soldiers’ Angels is a national nonprofit headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, founded in 2003 by the family of General George Patton. Through its global network of thousands of volunteers,
they fulfill its mission of providing aid, comfort, and resources to the military, veterans, and their families in a variety of ways— from shipping care packages to deployed service
members to providing food assistance to low-income and homeless veterans, and more.
Volunteers are the beating heart of Soldiers’ Angels and allow the organization to provide a wide array of services to nearly 1 million service members, veterans, and military families every year. Many of the volunteer opportunities are completely virtual and can be carried out from the comfort of your own home. Volunteers with Soldiers’ Angels can send care packages and write letters to deployed service members, support virtual baby showers for expectant military and veteran spouses, create handcrafted items for hospitalized veterans, send baked goods to deployed, and so much more.

In addition to a wide array of virtual opportunities, Soldiers’ Angels also offers in-person volunteer activities that support veterans of all generations. Soldiers’ Angels is one of the few nonprofit agencies with a voting seat on the VA’s National Advisory Council and approval to work within VA Medical Centers. Volunteers on the Soldiers’ Angels Veteran Support Team host luncheons and conduct patient visits at VA’s, assist with standdowns for homeless veterans, and much more. In addition to working within the VA, Veteran Support volunteers assist with monthly food distributions in six cities across the country. These invaluable events provide food assistance to low-income, homeless, and at-risk veterans and their families. Each event in every city provides approximately 75 lbs. of groceries to 210 qualified veterans. Volunteers at the event sort groceries and load them into the vehicles of attending veterans so they don’t even need to get out of their cars. At this time, food distribution events are held monthly in Atlanta, GA; Charleston, SC; Denver, CO; Detroit, MI; Orlando, FL; and San Antonio, Texas.
