Soldiers’ Angels Joins Forces with Cricket Wireless to Give Back to Veterans during Military Appreciation Month

    In honor of Military Appreciation Month, Cricket Wireless is teaming up with Soldiers’ Angels to honor our military veterans by sponsoring all six of the Soldiers’ Angels Veteran Mobile Food Distribution across the country in the month of May. The monthly Soldiers’ Angels event provides more than 60,000 pounds of food to over 1,200 veterans and their families in six markets – Atlanta, Charleston, Denver, Detroit, Orlando, and San Antonio.


    “We applaud Soldiers’ Angels for their extraordinary work to help active service members, veterans and their families,” said Tiffany Baehman, vice president and chief marketing officer at Cricket Wireless. “We're honored to support their efforts and show our gratitude for the service and sacrifice made by the men and women who serve our country.”


    Soldiers’ Angels also invites the community in the six participating markets to donate nonperishable food items to veterans in need. The food can be dropped off at their local Cricket authorized retail store. The donations will be utilized in Soldiers’ Angels Box Lunches, which are provided to homeless veterans as well as low-income veteran patients at VA Hospitals who may not otherwise know where their next meal is coming from. Donations can be dropped off now through May 31. Click here to find your nearest participating Cricket Wireless authorized retail store as well as a list of accepted food items.


    “We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of Cricket Wireless and their support of our military veterans,” said Amy Palmer, President and CEO of Soldiers’ Angels. “The Soldiers’ Angels Veteran Mobile Food Distribution events have become a lifeline for thousands of veterans across the country who are doing their best to make ends meet every month. With the help of great sponsors, like Cricket, we can ensure that these veterans are able to put food on the table for their families.”


    In addition to teaming up with Soldiers’ Angels, Cricket and Live Nation leveraged their relationship to provide active duty service members and veterans the opportunity to Skip the Line at select Cricket-sponsored Live Nation and House of Blues venues. Veterans and active duty service members simply show their valid VA ID or military ID to skip the line during the month of May. Click here to find a HOB skip the line venue near you.
