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.

the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, their families, and Veterans of all eras.

Soldiers' Angels is a wonderful organization. I have made many friends thru this group, other volunteers and the military I have supported. Not only does this group support the Men & Women defending our country, it supports the families back home, and the families that are caring for the wounded. With just a little bit of your time you can honestly change someones whole day, bring a smile to their face, and just maybe give them a reason to keep on going. This is why I am a Soldiers' Angel!!!

About three years ago I was on the hunt for a volunteer organization that helps our service members. I came from a military family so my great grandfather, uncles, father, brother and my boyfriend all have served and are currently serving. I understand the amount of work and stress they go through and I wanted to find a way to give back. Especially because I know that a lot of our service members don't get the appreciation that they deserve. I signed up for a few sites and I was instantly satisfied with Soldier's Angels. Mainly because they are always on top of their game. Every group leader I've had has been extremely nice and I have received weekly updates every week since I've joined. Not to mention I always have a reply right away whenever I have questions. BUT the main reason I love Soldier's Angels is because they genuinely care about our military. They do the best they can to be sure that everyone deployed receives a care package or letter. I have never had an issue with Soldiers' Angels and I think they deserve every single star up there.

I started my journey with Soldiers' Angels nearly 9 years ago. I took a break for a few years and recently came back as a volunteer. This is such a great organization! So many caring people doing so much good! My significant other is currently deployed and raves about how the care packages/letters he gets from S.A. and other similar nonprofits seriously make the deployment worth it. He says knowing that so many people support him and care about him...makes the sacrifice much easier. Soldiers' Angels is touching lives!

This is an awesome organization to volunteer for! There is something for everyone. Do you like to write letters? There's a team for that! Do you like to sew? There's a team for that! Do you like to bake? There's a team for that! Do you want to adopt a soldier? There's a team for that! Do you believe female caregivers deserve to be recognized? Guess what? There's a team for that! Do you like to bake? There is a team for that too! Are you a woman who believes women warriors deserve to be pampered? There's a team for that! Want to go even further and volunteer your time at a local VA? Yep folks you guessed it, there's a team for that too! We have lots of other teams too. Join us and you too will be a proud Soldiers' Angel. Woooo hoo! There is something for everyone

Soldiers Angels has been a true blessing .... I love the day that I can be part of different teams and utilize my strengths to bring a smile to a hero (whether it be their family stateside, a Veteran or deployed). When you join a team, the requirements aren't hard a letter a month, a baked goody, a card, a post card, etc. I recommend joining SA to all my friends and those I meet when I'm out and about!

I have only been a volunteer with Soldier's Angels a few months but it is a wonderful way that I can support the many young people serving our country. I belong to the letter writing team and do my best to write two (2) letters daily to deployed soldier's. I hope this gives them some encouragement and realization that they are appreciated.

Soldiers Angels is a wonderful organization. The soldiers are the beneficiaries to all the kindness and love that the angels have to offer.

I have been a volunteer for several years now and have adopted many soldiers in this time. Having the opportunity to bring joy to someone is utter joy. I do it because it needs to be done and everyone should be doing it.
