Mission: Soldiers’ Angels is a volunteer-led 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and their families. Founded by the mother of two American soldiers, we have hundreds of thousands of volunteers assisting veterans, wounded and deployed personnel and their families in a variety of unique and effective ways. Soldiers’ Angels responds quickly to requests for support and provides individualized, immediate assistance.  It is a “one-on-one, get it done quickly” organization.  Our volunteer Angels at home adopt individual deployed troops and stay in touch throughout their deployment. Wounded soldiers and their families are asked what they need, and Soldiers’ Angels responds in a hundred different ways:  voice-activated computers; financial assistance for loved ones to stay with their wounded family member; phone cards to call relatives who can’t visit as often as they wish, etc.  Both the organization and the program have grown, but, unfortunately, the needs of our deployed soldiers and their families are growing even faster. This is especially true for our young men and women who are wounded. The government is providing first-class medical care for our wounded soldiers, but it will never be able to provide all of what they deserve and so many services desperately needed by their families.  Soldiers’ Angels works closely with the Department of Defense, the nation’s major veterans groups and a variety of other military support organizations to make sure these brave young men and women who are being helped.
Target demographics: the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, their families, and Veterans of all eras.

I have been a soldiers' angel for three years. SA is such a wonderful organization. There are lots of great ways for people to get involved - something as simple as writing a card or letter to deployed heroes all the way up to volunteering at the VAs throughout the country. We have something for everyone which makes us truly unique. It has been such a rewarding experience. I am looking forward to many more years of volunteering with this amazing organization. I am proud to be an angel!

I have been a volunteer with Soldiers' Angels since early this year. I can't begin to tell you the satisfaction it brings to know that you are bringing a little bit of home to those deployed or putting a smile on a face with a new hat or blanket. I just wish I had found them sooner!

I am a Soldiers' Angel and I can't tell you how wonderful it is to have found such a fantastic organization to volunteer with. I have done volunteer work in the past but hands down this has been the most meaningful. We often hear from soldiers, vets, care givers, and families telling us what a difference we make with something as simple as a card or letter. Knowing we make a difference means the world to me. I wish everyone could experience what we Angels have experienced.

Soldiers Angels is such a wonderful organization. Helping to share back to those who protect and keep us safe. These angels help the veterans to know they are not alone and that someone is out there who cares for them and supports them. God bless this group and all they do.

I have worked with several organizations that support our deployed service members. While all of them are good, Soldiers' Angels is the best I've worked with to date. There are several ways to participate; some require money and some don't. It's all up to the volunteer for to choose his/her level of effort. There is a small monthly fee (minimum $1), but that enables the website to be kept current and any staff to respond to requests very quickly.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Soldiers' Angels has heart that a lot of non-profits lack these days. It is a group of caring individuals trying to make a difference in the lives of Veterans.

I started volunteering for Soldier's Angels a few months ago. I am a veteran and I wish this group had been around when I was in the Army. I find great joy in making stuff for the soldiers and sending them goodie boxes. I know that, even if I don't hear from them, they appreciate my letters and boxes. I remember how it felt when I got a letter or a box at mail call. I want every soldier to know that there is someone out there that appreciates the sacrifice they made by choosing to protect our country and our freedoms.

I found out about Soldier's Angels through my colleague with Mary Kay. They had donated Mary Kay products in the past to the soldiers & a lot of our family members have served in the military, so I thought it would be a nice idea to adopt a couple members of the military and send care packages. The staff are very attentive and readily available to speak to you or answer any concerns you have. Once you join a group you get an email from a member of the group providing her contact information in the event you need assistance. The mail takes a while and sometimes the tracking never gets updated so it is good to email your service member or send them stamps and paper so you can know when they get their package. Otherwise the tracking never updates and you will never know if it arrived. Otherwise it's a great way to provide items that the troops may not get themselves and they are all so generous they share their items with the other troop members.
