History
Support Siouxland Soldiers was founded in 2007 in Sioux City, IA by Sarah Petersen, a military wife, Siouxland Military families, Veterans and Security National Bank during the largest deployment of Iowa Troops since WWII. The organization began as a community-wide care-package program. To date Support Siouxland Soldiers has sent over 5,000 care-packages.

In 2010 Support Siouxland Soldiers began hosting “Honoring All Who Served” events where they distributed groceries to Veterans and Military families. These events quickly grew and now serve as a one-stop-shop for Veterans and Military families to build a support network; receive a hot meal, a box of groceries, haircuts and additional resources. Each year these events serve over 2500 Veterans and family members and requires over 50 Volunteers per event and 4,000 volunteer hours per year.

The mission of Support Siouxland Soldiers is to serve all Siouxland Veterans and Military families. Before, during and long after the deployments are over, we will be here.
