Soldiers’ Angels provides aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, their families and a growing veteran population. Founded in 2003 by the mother of two American soldiers, Soldiers’ Angels has grown from a grassroots effort to a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. One of the largest nonprofits dedicated to supporting our military, Soldiers’ Angels has provided over $100 million in aid to service members and their families through care packages, food assistance and support items to patients in VA hospitals. The nonprofit coordinates over 150,000 volunteer hours each year.
RIMS is proud to partner with an organization that works tirelessly on behalf of our Armed Forces and their families. Sponsored by ESIS, Soldiers’ Angels will join us for a variety of projects during RIMS 2018, so that we may give back to our military and support the local community.
Join us in the Main Lobby of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center each day, where we have multiple volunteer opportunities each day:
- No-Sew Blankets - Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday: Risk professionals can stop by the Soldiers' Angels center to help craft blankets. These comfortable gifts will be sent to military personnel overseas and those in medical facilities.
- Letter Writing Campaign - Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday: Risk professionals are encouraged to share their well-wishes with military personnel overseas, those in medical facilities, and their families.
- Care Packages - Monday, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm: Risk professionals can help pack care packages filled with ready-to-eat food, activities, games, and other items to be sent to military personnel overseas.
- Box Lunches - Tuesday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm: To feed homeless veterans and military personnel in medical facilities, risk professionals can fill boxed lunches with a variety of non-perishable foods.
- Hygiene Kits - Wednesday, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm: Risk professionals can help assemble kits filled with travel-sized toiletries. The kits will be delivered to military personnel in medical facilities, as well as to homeless veterans.
