Soldiers' Angels Reviews
I am very proud to be a supporter and donor of Soldiers' Angels. As a donor, I have looked at many charities (especially ones that support the military) and have found that Soldiers' Angels is a great organization that supports not only deployed service members but also veterans. I think this is important as many veterans from previous wars and conflicts did not receive the support or recognition they deserve. So, I am happy to have my donations go to help them. Thank you Soldiers' Angels for being true to your mission.
As a donor, I am very pleased to support Soldiers' Angels and the wonderful work that they do. I have supported other non-profit organizations focusing on military families and veterans in the past, but I must say that I was not pleased at how these organizations utilized my donation. Soldiers' Angels puts my funds to work first-hand with supporting veterans, their families, and our deployed. I am honored to be able to support Soldiers' Angels and be one of their donors. Other non-profits should use the example of Soldiers' Angels and support the men and women who sacrifice so much for our freedom. Thank you, Soldiers' Angels.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
I have also left Soldiers Angels Organization because they demand payment to be a part of their charity. No way should someone HAVE to pay to be able to send a package to a Soldier or help in other ways. I will say what is great about Soldiers Angels isn't the organization but rather the individuals who are involved and who have never seen Soldiers Angels Executive Board up close and personal. I DO NOT recommend this organization. I have served as a Registered Nurse to our Veterans. I believe 100% in our Veterans but would rather see the monies go 100% to our Veterans and Soldiers. I am a firm believer of some charities but will NEVER endorse this one after what I have seen and experienced first hand. Please DO help our Veterans and Soldiers but do it through organizations like the DAV and serving our Veterans first hand at the VA Hospitals. Your help for our Veterans and Soldiers not an Organization is desperately needed!
SOLDIERS ANGELS WISCONSIN CNC AND STATE "ACTING" LEADER: Before Soldiers Angels, I was a Registered Nurse for our Veterans. My back was injured and pain took over. Eventually, the pain became "managed" and I began missing my Veterans. Because of the back damage, I couldn't go back to work caring for them. I did an internet search and looked at all the organizations. I knew there were many to pick from. I picked Soldiers Angels because they have so many teams. You can do anything from sending a card to adopting a Soldier on a "one to one basis". Also, they don't stop with just the Soldiers. I also organized ice cream socials in two of our VA Hospitals. Our Veterans "love these" per their own words. This gives them something to look forward to all month. I also love the fact that they give backpacks to the wounded in the battlefield and also backpacks for the VA hospitals. This December, we raised over $500 for that endeavor. We will be hosing another event in May for the same purpose. I've talked to the returning Soldiers who tell me that they keep these backpacks with them in the field and use them on the injured soldiers as they need them. They couldn't thank Soldiers Angels enough. I could also talk about the many soldiers I've been blessed to adopt. One adopted me and became my Son. I've been very blessed through my involvement. I write letters and am a letter writing team captain. I know the Soldiers LOVE the letters they receive, it's a taste of home. It's a honor and privilege to do all I can for our Soldiers and Veterans. Soldiers Angels has enabled me to continue care giving for those who give even up to their lives for us. How can you possibly say thank you to an organization that great? I need some words that haven't been invented yet to be able to do that! I'm very grateful and honored to be part of Soldiers Angels.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Seeing the faces of my many smiling Veterans who LOVE the ice cream socials and are so blessed by them. Also, I've experienced how much our Soldiers love Soldiers Angels by the many letters I've received. I have heard back from our Medics who received Christmas goods and I know how grateful the Medics are also for the backpacks. This organization is the greatest in the many ways it helps from providing shower goods to new Mothers to providing backpacks to the Wounded and the Veterans in the Hospitals.

I would love to help this organization at a national level become more organized. That seems to be their biggest challenge. For example, they need a way to let the State leaders know when new Angels have joined to their state.
We would like to thank Soldier's Angels. The stuff they donated was a tremendous help for my family as we were just moving in here. This organization exceeded our expectations by 10 fold. The things you guys do are irreplaceable. Thank you guys.
I'd like to thank Soldiers' Angels for the donated items we received, they saved us money and helped around the house. Also, everyone volunteering was awesome!
I've been a volunteer with Soldiers' Angels for over a year now and I send out anywhere from 30 to 60+ cards a month to deployed soldiers and veterans. My greatest joy is getting my mail or opening my email and seeing something from a soldier saying how very much they appreciate the letters and care packages they receive from our angels. I often hear that the soldier was having a rough day and then got several cards/letters from angels right then when they needed them most. Thank you to all the volunteers and to those who donate cards, supplies, items, money to help us continue reaching out to our soldiers who are giving up so much to serve our country.
I can only thank the Soldiers Angeles for all the work they've done for my family and I. Though I am no longer their area, I loved the time I spent with each of the (SA) members. Memories I will never forget, and love. Thank you again Soldiers Angeles.
I love Soldiers' Angels and the work the organization does. I'm proud and honored to be a part of it! The changes made recently have made a difference in the organization and really made is a better place for all of us to volunteer.
I love Soldiers' Angels and the amazing work the organization does. I think it's about time the organization put some necessary structure in place. The organization had great heart but lacked structure. Patti wanted to do too many things for too many people and didn't take the time to run a business. I'm so excited to see the organization focusing on VA Medical Center support. It's greatly needed!
I have been with Soldier's Angels for many years. I was a little skeptical when some changes were implemented recently, but I now understand why changes were needed. I feel this organization is so organized and well run. They have a primary objective and it is simple...they serve our soldiers. Sending out cookies, adopting soldiers, mailing cards, etc. They are an outstanding organization and I am both proud and humbled to be a member. I hear so many people say they wish they knew something they could do for our military. I confidently tell them, check out Soldier's Angels.
I am a new volunteer from the Great State of Tennessee. My Soldier is also from Tennessee and that is fantastic. After writing for a few months, I asked her why she wrote for an Angel Pen Pal and she told me that she was ordered to by the Commander as she had not heard from her family in quite a while and was depressed. She is now hearing from her Mom again and so she now has two families in Tennessee who Love her. Thank you Soldiers Angels for allowing us Angels to make such a huge difference in a Soldier's life.
Since the new leadership took over at Soldiers Angels and instituted a "pay your dues or you can't be on a team" policy, I am no longer an active angel. I prefer my money go directly to the services offered to the troops, not to try to balance a poorly run budget and the upcoming planned salaries for the SA leadership. As a volunteer we were asked to pay our dues AND to pay for the postage/gifts we sent to the troops and their families.
