Volunteerism Matters: Soldiers’ Angels Blanket Drive
It may be the hottest part of the summer, but blankets are a top need at Soldiers’ Angels. Their organization donates hundreds of blankets every year to patients at VA hospitals across the country and to deployed active duty military. Hospitals can be cold even in the summer and deployments are long. Imagine the comfort and care these soldiers and veterans feel when they get a handcrafted blanket with a note from a caring friend.
The goal this year for Soldiers Angels is to make and donate 2,000 blankets. The PM Group’s Volunteerism Matters team couldn’t wait to have Soldiers’ Angels come back to our offices for another afternoon of making no-sew blankets for patients in local VA hospitals. We are so grateful to be able to be part of reaching their goal, and to bring much needed comfort to someone in need.
Soldiers’ Angels has thousands of volunteers in all 50 states as well as 27 different countries around the world who work within their 12 different programs for active duty, veterans, and their families. Over the last 15 years, they have sent over 879,600 care packages to combat deployed service members and have given over $147 million in aid to military veteran families since 2003.
