Denver veterans get 5 tons of donated food in VA event

Soldiers’ Angels served over 200 veterans on Friday



E.J. Walton charged across the lawn clutching two paper bags of groceries, one of several trips he made on Friday. The 79-year-old Air Force veteran was part of a group of volunteers who served more than 200 veterans about 5 tons of food.

“This was my fourth month volunteering for them. I’ll keep coming as long as they’ll have me,” said Walton, who wore a black Vietnam veterans ball cap and a Soldiers’ Angels T-shirt over his button-down shirt. “We can’t let the veterans give up.”

Soldiers’ Angels, a nonprofit with just seven paid employees, worked with Walton and other volunteers to distribute the groceries at the VA Hospital on Clermont Street. Volunteers from Wells Fargo and Lockheed Martin were also there, sorting bags of potatoes, Pop-Tarts and other snacks into paper bags. Soldiers’ Angels partnered with the Food Bank of the Rockies for Friday’s giveaway.
