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.

Reviews for Soldiers' Angels

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been apart of this organization for about three months and am pleased with with the opportunity to directly show support to those serving our country through all the branches of the military. The team leaders have made me feel welcome and are responsive when questions arise. Though I don't have a lot of money to contribute to charities these days, Soldiers' Angels offers many different options to show U.S. service men and women that they are appreciated.

Wonderful organization! I have been sending to service members for about two years. I have even made a couple of life-long friends!

I have been volunteering with Soldiers' Angels for about six months and they are wonderful group of people to interact with. I really enjoy baking and making care packages for the soldiers and letting them know how much I appreciate their service for our freedom and safety :)

I love getting opportunities to help deployed soldiers. I don't like the complete lack of organization and having to *pay* in order to volunteer my time, supplies, and money.

I first found this organization back in 2007 and I have adopted many soldiers. This is an awesome organization that offers so much support to our troops. There are so many different ways that you can get involved with and it is such a great feeling. I have several family members that have joined as well. I love this organization!

I have been with Soldiers Angels for about 6 months now and I love it. It is a wonderful program that supports our Troops. There are many different options available to show your support. You can write letters, send care packages, send birthday cards or much more. I have always been a vocal supporter of our brave men and women of the Armed Forces but now I get to put my "money where my mouth is", so to speak. No matter what your income this organization allows everyone to participate in helping and showing love to those who protect us everyday. I am so glad I found Soldiers Angels and I tell everyone I can about it as well. I have received many letters and emails from my soldiers and they express their gratitude and love. It is very rewarding.

I learned about Soldiers Angels from a relative from another state via Facebook. She has been an angel for a couple of years. I was really impressed about how easy it was to sign up to become an angel volunteer. This is just the end of second calendar month for myself, but I have already found opportunities to join angel teams that fit with my skill sets and talents. It has been straight forward and there are plenty of other angel volunteers to help via Facebook when I had questions. I had no problems finding an assignment that allowed me to make an item for a deployed soldier's family. I am working on making my next item for a military member or their family.

I have been apart of this organization for over a month now and I can't be more pleased with being apart of this amazing group. I haven't done this for a long time, but its amazing on how everyone makes me feel welcome and helps out with questions and everything. It makes my heart feel full knowing that a simple letter can make all the difference to these amazing individuals that willingly give there life to give us our freedom. I have always been appreciative for their service, but telling them in a letter is awesome. Especially for the fact you don't know them personally and you can make them feel and know you care.

Baking for the deployed soldiers & sending care packages fulfills me & I hope it makes the day of that deployed soldier just a bit brighter, helps them get through their day a little easier & realize that there are people who revere them and the dangerous & deadly jobs they do. Those soldiers are the true superheroes as are their families & friends waiting for those soldiers to come home hale & hearty. One soldier I recently sent a baked goods care package to never received it, as he lost his life before it could get to him, his widow and 2 young children did. I received his widow’s email informing me of his death and thanking me for my support to her deployed husband. My reply email was the hardest thing I have ever had to write. I then notified my Team Leader and she got things going to connect with the soldier’s widow with the various services Soldiers’ Angels offers military families. Soldiers’ Angels has programs for every aspect of a soldier’s life and a soldier’s family’s life. Soldiers’ Angels is a fantastic organization & I am proud & humbled to be allowed to be part it.

I have been a dedicated Verified Angel since 2007. I have received some of the most heart warming as well as heart breaking letters from the Service Members I have adopted. I've seen them through break ups, child birth while deployed, loss of brothers in arms and every other situation. I have read the letters and have laughed and cried. I remember when these guys were no where near Internet or cell towers. I have received flags that were in planes on bombing missions, deployment coins and battalion patches. I treasure it all. I will continue until they are all home. I let them know they are appreciated for their dedication and service. I feel safe.
