Veteran and Single Mother Received Car Donation

Highlight image

Thanks to the Recycled Rides program, a very deserving veteran in San Jose recently received the life-changing gift of a donated car. Jaime Duran is a 14-year veteran of the U.S. Army Reserves and a single mother. Several years ago, she gave up her job, car, and home to move with her son and new husband to the United Arab Emirates for his contract job. After a short time, the relationship turned abusive both physically and mentally. Jaime and her son returned to San Jose where they live with friends. Jaime is attending college classes and working temporary jobs to supplement her income and continue on the path to financial recovery. The car, a newly refurbished 2013 Honda Civic, was donated by Allstate and repaired by technicians at Caliber Collision in Willow Glen who volunteered their services to repair the vehicle as a community service. Earlier this month, Jaime received the keys to her Recycled Ride at an event in San Jose- view all of the photos here.

Remembering President and Veteran George H.W. Bush

One of the most remarkable things about George H.W. Bush’s experiences is not his dedication to public service, nor the historical mark he left on America as our 41st president. It’s the fact that his life story has so much in common with the veterans and service members of today: what led him to a life of service, the challenges he faced both after serving in the war and as he aged, and the solutions that he found - that can also work for the larger veteran community. Learn more about President George H.W. Bush's life, legacy, and service to our country.

Not Receiving Text Messages?

If you are a veteran that has attended one of our Mobile Food Distributions events across the country, then you have received a text message from Soldiers' Angels. Text messages serve as one of our main methods of communication to alert veterans when registration for a food distribution is open and also to alert those veterans on the wait list that there is space for them to come to the event and receive food. We have received several calls from veterans who were once receiving text notifications and then suddenly stopped receiving them. If this is happening for you, please review our recent blog to help troubleshoot your issues.
