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.

Reviews for Soldiers' Angels

Role: Professional with expertise in this field
Rating: 4 stars  

Soldiers' Angels is an amazing organization, but a lot of organizations can say that. The one thing that has set them apart in my mind is their span of volunteer opportunities. They have options for every age from 5 years to 100, and there is a way for every group size to be involved to help veterans. This combined with options to volunteer for every skill level and pretty much anywhere in the country, allows for a unique volunteer experience. My opinion is that this should be the first place to go if you are looking to volunteer to help veterans. The answer is always yes, they need you.

I am a volunteer with Soldiers Angels and am on multiple teams. I retired from a career after 29 years and was looking for a way to work with veterans. I am so lucky to be able to volunteer at the VA hospital here in Denver Colorado. I am so lucky to have contact with veterans and it is so rewarding. I look forward to each time I am at the hospital or at an event.

Serving with the Soldiers' Angels Team has been a true honor. We are all like a huge family. The passion and diligence of everyone involved is unlike any other not-for-profit organization that I have been involved with. If you want to support an organization that does it GREAT, support Soldiers' Angels. It is an awesome feeling knowing that your serving with an organization that is doing it right.

My story is a little bit different, in that I have been a volunteer for Soldiers' Angels since 2006. We have shipped over 60,000 Christmas stockings to Iraq and Afghanistan. Now we are supporting the VA's in Georgia as well as working with Google to provide laptops to our brave soldiers that have been wounded. This picture was taken May 22 at Trinka Davis Veterans Village in Carrollton, GA. The award is a proclamation from our governor.

I started working with Soldiers Angel's a year ago. I couldn't have chosen a better group of loving caring people to work with. This organization is the most conscientious nonprofit I have worked with, making sure admin cost are low as possible and donations go to helping soldiers and their families. Hearing how much our Soldiers appreciate being able to depend on us just made my heart leap with pure joy.
Knowing my donations go to helping our military and their families is priceless. Many charities you give and give to and nothing seems to ever change. Not so with Soldiers Angels, I know I make a difference in a soldier's life.
Best,
Jackie

I have been with Soldier's Angels since 2006 and my favorite part about this organization is the direct contact we get with each service person we support. I have served on the "Deployed" Team since 2006 and earlier this year joined the "Letter Writing Team" in an effort to extend my gratitude to more Soldier's.
It's a great group and I am Thankful!

I've been adopting soldiers since 2011, and I enjoy it very much. SA's does so much for our service members and vets which makes me proud to be a part of this great organization.

This organization helps me to feel that I am really doing something to uplift the spirits of our men and women who serve our country. I am currently on 3 teams, sewing, babies, and adopting a serving soldier. It warms my heart each time I send out a gift. This is a great organization
