Shout out to Soldiers Angels as they are a lifeline in a time of instability. In the heat of San Antonio these people worked to help out us vets with little to no resourses and they did this with the biggest smiles and words of encouragement. They acted like we were doing them a favor! Thank you.

Traveled many miles, for what?
For just an extra small turkey?
They also managed to lost the registered name list, so instead of a 15/20 mnts, it over an hour just to get trough the car line.

Hello and so sorry to hear that you had a bad experience at one of our food distributions! It also sounds as if you only received a turkey? Our event also provides roughly 75 lbs. of food items every month. If you wouldn't mind emailing us to clarify, we would appreciate it so we can improve our events in the future. Please email: info@soldiersangels.org.

Soldiers Angels food distribution for veterans has helped me with food. They have scheduled times for each person but I feel that some people come earlier. The staff of volunteers that they use are excellent and they have the food package ready to go. Thank you for this opportunity.

As a disabled veteran, I only receive income once a month. With bills and 3 children to support, times get tough ALOT more than I'd like to admit. My pride gets the best of me sometimes when it comes to accepting or asking for help, especially when I'm made to feel worthless or pathetic. Soldiers Angels has ALWAYS been warming, kind, understanding and truly a Godsend!! Each time I attend a food distribution I'm welcomed by smiling faces and people who make me feel like it's ok to ask for/accept help! My family and I wouldn't make it without Soldiers Angels!! Thank you for bringing love and hope to our lives! I can't thank y'all enough!!

I had never heard of this program before last year but they were definitely a blessing to my family. Due to covid my family has been short on funds and have barely been able to make ends meet so when I learned about the program it was a huge relief to know that my kids would have gifts for Christmas morning. This group is wonderful and such a huge help. Thank you!! ❤

This was my first experience with Soldier’s Angels and my task was a small one. Collect and package Halloween treats. To make this more special, I asked a few friends (some veterans themselves”, to help write personal notes to accompany each bag. This is a photo of the box we put together before going to the Post Office. I can’t wait to get more involved. Women of Valor is my next commitment as well as adopting a family for Christmas.

Sometimes we struggle to find even the bare necessities of life. Food may not be on the top of our list as bills keep going up or other family members need our help. Soldier's Angels has been a Godsend for our family. Both myself and my husband are veterans. During the Covid-19 crisis we have struggled to care for our children and grands. If it weren't for the volunteers who work the mobile food distribution in our area we probably would not have been able to feed our family. I am eternally grateful to John Harris and his team for all their help! Keep up the good work. God bless you all.

I heard about Soldiers' Angels while in the HUD-VASH Program. When I found my apartment, I needed additional household items, so my case manager gave me several phone numbers and names of nonprofits that could help me. Soldiers' Angels was on that list. I dialed down the list leaving messages and Soldiers' Angels was one of them. I called and left a message with Scott, who returned my call promptly. He was very friendly as he briefly interviewed me, then told me what I'd be getting, who would deliver it, and when it would arrive. I even got the delivery tracking number so I could keep tabs on my shipment's location, delivery time and date.

My delivery arrived on time with no hitches and it was everything I was told I'd be getting. I was most impressed by the bedding I received. A red comforter with matching sheets and pillowcases, plus two additional sets of linen made me smile as I put a set on my brand new queen size bed that I was able to find on my own.

I called several nonprofits for help in getting similar items, but Soldiers' Angels was the only one to come through with the goods they promised. I found Scott to be very professional in handling my request. Thank you Soldier's Angels
for being a little help from a friend!

I have to admit that it was much more than I expected. I wish more veterans were aware of this program. I received more than I needed. I will reach out to other veterans who also need items as well. Soldiers Angels is a well fit name for this organization. I will definitely let others know about you. My blessings to you and all other veterans and families who get the privilege of this great program. Thanks again.

The response time was quick, within 2 hours, to any email I sent. Everything went smoothly, with no hiccups. My wife and I are happy and would like to thank every at Soldiers' Angels for what they have done. My wife said that our new house is feeling more like a home now. My daughter has special needs and she loves the comforter set and she has sensory needs and the silk sheets and pillow case helps keep her calm. She grabs it when she is frustrated and "pets" it to feel better. We would like to express our gratitude to the team at Soldiers' Angels. Thanks again!

This program is awesome and the family that adopted us wow I can't say enough words about her. I don't know if I can say her name but it's Melanie Oliver. She got pretty much everything the kids asked for. We ran into a problem with some items to return and she helped us get it resolved because we couldn't have done it without her.

Vet Tix events don't hardly come to Corpus Christi, TX. I have to drive hours out of town if I want to see an event. Gas, time, money, well I might as well pay full price. And the support team is terrible to get a hold off, I only get commonly asked questions, not real support. Thank you anyway because I know people that live in Houston, Austin, and San Antonio and they love it but us poor vets that live in towns 400k or below are out of luck most of the time.

About a month ago I received an email from Soldier’s Angels. This organization was interested in mailing greeting cards to veterans on their birthdays as well as get well cards if appropriate. I responded immediately for my husband, a 92 year old retired Sgt. Major of the United States Marine Corps. Chuck received his COVID shot in March. Within weeks he was hospitalized with an unexplained mass on his throat which prevented him from swallowing even liquids. He was hospitalized and placed on a high dosage of antibiotics for two weeks. He then developed C-diff as a result of the antibiotics and was hospitalized again. He had to go to rehab then as he had been bed ridden for so long his legs became weak. He came home again for a few days and then had a pain in his left side so severe he couldn’t breathe. At the hospital he was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism and swollen kidney. He is now home but requires 24/7 oxygen, a catheter and a walker, all of which he never had before. Needless to say, his morale has been low. To date, my husband has received 20 cards full of warm thoughts, wishes and kind words. They mean so much to him and he keeps them close by to reread everyday. Thank you to such a wonderful organization that cares not only for active military and their families, but for our veterans who sometime feel forgotten.

Good day.

This was my first time attending the Soldiers' Angels veteran Food distribution event so I am not giving it a 5 star rating, unless I have something to compare it with.

However, from the point of being signed up on-line in advance, until driving away with the needed food, I was very impressed with the thoroughness of everything.

It was helpful to get the advance notice of what to do and how important it was to follow the guidelines.

After arriving, all the personnel, from the Veteran's Department Security force to the Soldier's Angels check-in staff were friendly and considerate, despite having to stand in the high 80's degree heat and direct cars through the line of cars.

The very large group of Soldiers' Angels staff personnel (themselves in the high heat) , who loaded the food into the vehicle were careful in how they did it. They all were friendly and I felt every one of them cared about me and every individual who came through.

They are the spirit we all should attain to, in helping one another.

My Soldier Angel is simply the best person I have never met. She sent care packages, wrote letters, and did the usual things that support groups for soldiers do. The thing is that she also texted me late into the night when I came down with COVID and got put into isolation. When no one was there to talk to me, she cared enough to talk. She wanted to know how I was feeling and really cared for me. Sure my team checked in and I had my health screenings but my Soldier Angel kept me alive on the inside by being the one person who always reached out, always cared, and constantly kept my spirits up. I can't say enough good things about Soldier's Angels and the support they brought to me.

I started a project for the Soldiers Angles called Precious Letters for for the Military service men and women. I adopted 7 soldiers and send packages as well as letters . I send separate packages to another adopted service for the same organization. They inspired me to step up and help those who is help me and my family live a happy fulfilled life. So I’m asking everyone to do the same. This is letters and paintings that is sent to our soldiers.
