"May no soldier go unloved,” is the driving force behind Soldiers’ Angels, a national nonprofit organization. This holiday season, team members across several of County Materials’ locations donated food and supplies to fill 139 Christmas stockings that will be distributed to military families, wounded heroes, deployed service members, and veterans through the Soldiers’ Angels network.
County Materials is proud to be a holiday community partner with this organization and provide support to military personnel, their families, and veterans. Donated supplies and time contributed by numerous County Materials’ team members to this effort is an example of the company’s culture of giving and represents County Materials’ Vision of Success, Support, and Stability.
In 2018 alone, Soldiers’ Angels provided over $25 million in aid to over 515,000 service members, veterans, wounded heroes, and military families. Through the Deployed Support Programs, combat deployed service members were supported with 28,659 care packages and 177,307 letters. The Veteran Support Program served over 24,600 veterans with food assistance and handed out over 39,995 items bedside to patients in VA Hospitals across the country. Through the seasonal holiday Adopt-A-Family program, Soldiers’ Angels volunteers “adopted” 1,637 military families, that included 2,882 military children. New and expectant spouses of combat deployed as well as active-duty female service members were provided 1,165 baby boxes to help them welcome their new bundles of joy. Soldiers’ Angels volunteers are the heart of the organization and logged over 164,524 volunteer hours just in 2018.
