Soldiers' Angels is thrilled to announce a revamping of Operation Veterans Outreach to more-directly connect veterans who need assistance with the people who want to help them.
Propriety Operation Outreach software on
the new site allows applicants in need to post pictures and background
about their military service as they request donations of time, money,
services or materials. Patriotic Americans then browse a list of current needs or sign up to be notified of future postings based on keywords, type of need and location of the recipient.
"It's like Craig's List for America's
Veterans," says Soldiers' Angels Chief Program Officer Lance Dowd. "The
real power of this new site is its ability to galvanize the community
surrounding a veteran to become personally involved in supporting that
veteran. We're continuing to enable all Americans to make a measurable
difference in the lives of our nation's military men and women, which is
the unique power of Soldiers' Angels."
To be eligible for assistance through
Operation Veterans Outreach, applicants must be a transitioning/wounded
or honorably discharged (Honorable or General Discharge status) member
of any branch of the US Military, including National Guard, Reserves and
Coast Guard. Eligibility is also extended to the immediate family of
those killed in action.
to create an Operation Veterans Outreach supporter or applicant
account! You can also make a general donation without signing up.
