SoldierCare is an inspiring non profit that helps our nations heroic soldiers. They give the soldiers a chance to interact with local communities. The soldiers share stories and give light into their world. SoldierCare is an amazing organization helping our veterans and those in need.
It is so rare to find a charity that does exactly what it sets out to do. I am honored to volunteer for SoldierCare year after year. We help wounded soldiers regain a piece of happiness and learn about the pitfalls of the human condition in the process. St. Michael's truly spreads the teachings of Jesus in a productive way, and empathizes inter-disciplinary beliefs all for the greater good for the soldiers.
The opportunities provided by this Project are a wonderful respite for these wounded warriors. They are an amazing group and deserve anything we can do for them.
I was so honored to get a chance to meet the soldiers that braved their way through the harshest conditions of war in IRAQ, and other war torn areas. Having met a few of these soldiers, I learned a great deal of their courage and resilience. Their stories need to be heard. This cause cause is the closest thing you'll get to understanding the hardships of war.
Soldier Care is a remarkable program, that helps wounded soldiers returning from war. The humanity and care that is given to these soldiers, and just, if not more important, is the impact these soldiers have on all of those who come in contact with them. One of the most beautiful parts of the program is the complete lack of ego. Everyone involved is there only for the men and women who have served. I am still moved by these men and women. Soldier Care's importance is immeasurable.
I have been involved with SoldierCare for a number of years volunteering at the Big Sunday events at St. Michaels Episcopal Church in Studio City, CA supporting wounded soldiers and sending items to the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. A very memorable time was picking up severely wounded soldiers from the airport and driving them to their hotel for a long weekend of touring LA and visiting fun events like a Dodgers game, cruise at Long Beach, visiting a studio set, etc. We had wonderful conversations on the drive. This is a very important outreach project and we get very touching feedback from the soldiers.
I am merely a volunteer for this event. I am one of many who work in the kitchen. We prepare a nice meal for the wounded Vets who attend. The afternoon is wonderful event in which the Vets are treated to a nice meal, entertainment, and general socializing. I am so moved when I see how appreciative the Vets are. The Vets have given SO MUCH for me and for our country this seems like such a little bit that I can give back to them. They are also so very appreciative that the event is truly deeply moving. This truly is an outstanding event!
I have worked Big Sunday for Soldier Care for the last three years. This is a non political charity that helps welcome returning soldiers. It is always inspiring to meet the soldiers and their families and to let them know we appreciate them and their sacrifices. Funds are raised for their needs as well.
As a member of St. Michael's, I have volunteered for several years at the annual Big Sunday Soldier Care event. The purpose of the event is to acknowledge and thank vets as well as to raise funds for weekend getaways for injured vets and their families. It's very easy to forget about those who've served our country and the sacrifices that they've made. The Soldier Care Project shows gratitude towards the women and men who've fought for our country and reminds them that their service is remembered and appreciated.
Soldier Care is an outreach that tells wounded veterans that we care, that their sacrifices are not forgotten and that they and their families matter, even to people they have never met. it's also an opportunity for church members and community volunteers to engage in meaningful interaction with the soldiers and their families.
