Soldiers' Angels Texas and the Grill Instructors

- May no soldier go unlovedHELLO ALL!!!

Last weekend, May 19th - Soldiers' Angels of central Texas joined forces with Grill Instructors to serve 1000 people at the VA hospital in Waco, Texas. We invited all in-patients, out-patients, families and employees. We also invited people from the local VFW's, PGR and some local contacts.

It was a HUGE success Thanks to all who donated and helped to get donations! Thanks to all who helped out with this!!! The Grill Instructors were also KEY in making this happen. We couldn't have done it without you guys!!! THANK YOU!!!! PGR showed up with a huge amount of donations,and a local contact from the American Legion Auxiliary - Bryant Oliver Post, came and brought a large donation of items. The Grill Instructors showed up with 2 big screen tv's they had donated to give to the VA facility! We had all the Pepsi products we could drink and all the chips we could eat from Frito Lay - Thanks Stephanie! We also had 1100 sm cups of Blue Bell Ice Cream donated by Blue Bell - Thanks to the Grill Instructors for that also! We had 2 very generous grants, one from Salute America's Heroes, and another from Impact Player Partners, BIG THANK YOU on those!

The patients and employees at the VA Hospital were overwhelmed by the out pouring of love and support they were receiving. It was such an honor to be able to serve our veterans a meal they will never forget! The food was superb!

I put some of the pictures that I have on a slide show for everyone to enjoy, and I expect more pictures later.
