CAVU Impact Partner: Hunger Relief for 340,000 Veterans and Active Duty Service Members
October 12, 2023
CAVU Securities is proud to support Soldiers’ Angels as one of our Capital Markets Commitment impact recipients. As part of this commitment and the CAVU Impact Pledge, we donate 10% of gross revenues from capital markets deal fees and money fund share classes to nonprofit partners serving veterans and underrepresented communities.
Every year, Soldiers’ Angels (SA) provides aid, comfort, and resources to members of the military, veterans, and their families. The organization was founded on the principle that those who choose military service are committing to something much larger than themselves—and that this commitment requires them to sacrifice a great deal to protect the United States and its values. SA honors this sacrifice by ensuring that those who serve or have served, are supported and uplifted through a variety of programs.
These programs are run by a global network of volunteers and include everything from sending letters and care packages to deployed troops, visiting veteran patients in VA hospitals across the country, and organizing special events for military families during the holidays.
Recently, Soldiers’ Angels announced that their Military and Veterans Hunger Relief Program has expanded to a new location in Dallas, Texas. This program provides food assistance for low-income active-duty service members, guardsmen, reservists, and veterans of all generations. Once a month, volunteers provide registered individuals with food assistance in a convenient drive-through format.
Since 2015, SA’s distribution program has provided over 340,000 service members and veterans with food. Distribution centers can be found in cities around the country, including Orlando, San Antonio, Denver, Detroit, Atlanta, Charleston, and now Dallas. Service members and veterans needing food assistance are invited to register online for a food distribution event in their area.
CAVU Securities is proud to serve as a corporate sponsor of SA’s Military and Food Distribution program and to also have received the coveted Soldiers’ Angels Golden Wing Award for its continuous contribution through volunteering.
