What we're about

Whether you're extremely busy or have lots of free time on your hands, if you have a big heart, then this meetup is for you! Let's join together to make a positive difference in San Antonio by participating in service projects. Service projects will be one-offs (in other words you can volunteer for a single event without any long-term commitment) which is great for busy people and those who like variety. The idea is to do group volunteering so we can meet, get to know each other & make friends while serving the community. Because people have varying interests, we'll include different types of projects. This group is also helpful to learn about volunteer opportunities in the community. Who's In?

SOLDIERS ANGELS - Food Distribution to Help Feed Our VETERANS!

Location visible to members

Cowboys Dancehall, 3030 NE Interstate 410 Loop, San Antonio, TX 78218 ** This Food Distribution is for Homeless Veterans, Veterans in Need and their families. ** If you've ever wanted to THANK a VETERAN FOR THEIR SERVICE this is your chance! We'll be packaging and putting food in the cars of approximately 200 Veterans - maybe more! During Food Distribution, the SA Food Bank delivers a truck FULL of food - in big bags/boxes. We don't have to unload the truck (anymore) but we'll bag the food into sizable portions - according to the number of veteran families in need that day. During this event, the SA Food Bank will bring enough food to serve anywhere between 200 - 250 families. Come help our cause and truly make a difference to our local veteran community. Volunteers assist by: - Helping to verify the veterans' status (check ID cards) and sign them in (most have pre-registered so you'll only need to sign them in) - Interacting with those waiting in line for food - Packing groceries for distribution - Loading groceries into their vehicles - set-up tents, tables, signs, etc., etc.,. You must be at least 16 years old to volunteer for this event. When you arrive, introduce yourselves to each other, sign-in (3 sheets) and I'll brief everyone on how to set-up for the event. There will be Starbucks coffee, donuts, cold water and various snacks. Wear comfortable clothing, shoes, hat (if you wear hats), and gloves. We will be working outside, some of the boxes can be heavy, but the weather is going to be great! Remember - you will not be asked to carry or do more than you want to. Take a couple of pictures if you can AND have fun! :)
