Our 2023 Impact Numbers Are In

Our 2023 impact numbers are in, and we are pretty excited about them! 2023 was a year of growth and change as we made the transition to a new system, changed up the way we operate some of our programs, launched new initiatives, and grew our support. Many of our campaign goals were not only achieved, they were exceeded! It’s all thanks to the growing number of donors and Angels who help ensure we meet the needs of the Military community. Here’s a look at our 2023 impact.

Overall Support Numbers

Since 2003, we have provided over $289 Million in aid to Military and Veteran families! Over the last 20 years, we’ve sent over 1,038,900 care packages to combat deployed Service Members. This year, we were able to…

  • Provide support to 1,332,654 Service Members, Veterans, wounded heroes, and their families
  • Provide 45,722 Veterans with food assistance
  • Expand our Military and Veteran Food Distribution to Dallas

Angel volunteers are the heart of our organization and represent all 50 states, Washington DC, Puerto Rico, and 31 countries abroad.
