About

Have you always wondered what you can do to show your appreciation and give your support to our Veterans? To let them know they are not forgotten?..... Soldiers' Angels in the Pacific Northwest hosts monthly morale luncheons as a way to show our appreciation.

Soldiers’ Angels is looking for event volunteers who will become part of this important team & mission of gratitude! We are honored to serve and welcome your participation to make these events successful for the Veterans.

Luncheons are typically held on the second Saturday of the month and we need volunteers to set up, serve Veterans, clean up, distribute donated items and show your support of Veterans at the luncheon. The estimated time commitment is approximately 3 hours a month.

The following is an experience shared from a volunteer at a past gathering supported by Soldiers’ Angels.

"He shook my hand and said thank you as he came into the auditorium. He was one I hadn’t seen before and I shook his hand and said - No. Thank you! We had our lunch and as he was leaving - he came up and shook my hand again and gave me a huge bear hug just after telling me how much this meant to him. He told me, 'You see just two and a half weeks ago I was homeless only with the clothes on my back. So for you guys to come and do this for us - means more than I can say.’ I saw that his eyes were tearing up and that it meant the world to him to know that he has not been forgotten."
