Female Athlete Volunteers support Soldier’s Angels with Blankets of Hope
Members of FAV (Female Athlete Volunteers), a Teen Korps chapter, spent last Sunday supporting Soldier’s Angels and made Blankets of Hope to be sent overseas to this country’s wounded troops and veterans.
Soldiers’ Angels is a volunteer-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit with hundreds of thousands of volunteers providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, veterans and their families.
The Blankets of Hope team creates handmade blankets to send hope, support and gratitude to America’s wounded and veterans. Used on hospital beds, wheelchairs, and transport litters on medevac flights, Blankets of Hope bring the message that each service member is loved and not forgotten.
The members of FAV are athletes on multiple local teams including the WAVE Volleyball teams, Surf and Sharks competitive soccer teams, Adrenaline,LAX West and Pacific Falcons Lacrosse teams as well as the Solana Beach CATS basketball team.
