Soldiers' Angels

Defense contractor KBR has stepped up to support the troops with a $10,000 grant to nonprofit Soldiers' Angels, awarded through their Corporate Giving Program. The money will help fund Soldiers' Angels activities in support of military personnel and their families in KBR's home state of Texas, through projects such as First Response Backpacks for the wounded, Hero Flights, Living Legends, Tank Support, Valour-IT, and more.

"KBR has a great track record as a company that recognizes the importance of making sure our heroes are cared for and supported," said Soldiers' Angels founder Patti-Patton Bader. "We are honored and excited to receive these funds that help us continue to ensure 'No Soldier Go Unloved.'"

Support from KBR has extended beyond the $10,000 grant. They recently sponsored a Soldiers' Angels booth at the Freedom Over Texas 4th of July Celebration, allowing Soldiers' Angels to interact with an audience very receptive to the message of troop support.

Soldiers' Angels Soldier Liaison Toby Nunn was in attendance at Freedom Over Texas and saw the effects of KBR's generosity firsthand. "It was so inspiring. Soldiers' Angels were the guests of KBR but were also surrounded by KBR volunteers. Together we put up a wonderful information booth that assisted both organizations in playing a positive role in the Houston community. To have the support of KBR is amazing; they bring a special formula of people and leadership into everything they do."

KBR is a leading global engineering, construction and services company supporting the energy, petrochemicals, government services and civil infrastructure sectors. Their 57,000 employees have a proud history of community involvement as donors and as volunteers in the many communities where they live and work. KBR shares that proud legacy of community engagement and support across the United States and the world.

Established in 2003, Soldiers' Angels is a volunteer-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard, as well as veterans and military families.
