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.

My family and I attended the veterans giveaway on September 26. I was very impressed with the friendliness of the staff. They had many things to choose from during the giveaway. Overall, it was an excellent event. Definitely a great charity and we are thankful for their donations!

I attended the Soldiers' Angels giveaway on September 19, and was more than pleased with the whole event. I had never heard of this organization prior to the listing on Craigslist. At first I was rather hesitent, but once I arrived and was greeted by the cheerful volunteers and saw the variety of items they were providing free of charge to the veteran's, I was awestruck. A great big Thank You goes out to the volunteers and the companies providing the products.

I visited the Soldiers' Angels giveaway on September 19. My wife and I recently moved from San Diego, CA to San Antonio Texas. Unfortunately, several of our boxes did not make it. Thus, we were in the need for kitchen utensils and the like. The giveaway helped my family, and I off-set the cost of replacing the items that were lost in shipment. I cannot thank the volunteers enough who help make Soldiers' Angels what it is today. Additionally, I would like to send out a “BIG” thank you to the vendors who donated the items for veterans.

I visited the Soldiers' Angels give away on September 19. I wasn't sure what to expect, as I've never been to one before. In fact, I had never heard of this organization until yesterday! It was great!
I was greeted and helped by the most enthusiastic and kind volunteers. There was a great variety of useful household merchandise that was on my list and it helped my family.
It was a true blessing to be afforded the opportunity to be a recipient of this giveaway. Great job well done by all involved in this event. "Thank you for your service to our military veterans!" God Bless!

My wife found out about Soldier's Angels giveaway that morning, we signed up and went to the event. Not really knowing what to expect when we got there but was blown away by the genuine caring, kindness and friendliness of all the volunteers. With my wife, mother and 5 kids in our household, everything helps, which is what this organization has done for this military family, helped. We are grateful for the volunteers and the Soldier's Angels organization for assisting us.

I was EXTREMELY impressed with the way my fellow veterans and I were treated at this event. My wife and family are very grateful for the assistance we received. I was treated with dignity and empathy by all of the workers at the event - I wish I could remember all their names but I will mention the names of those that I do recall "Missy" who greeted me at the door and explained the giveaway and ""kay" who was kind enough to listen to my "EMERGENCY FAMILY SITUATION" and promised she would get back with me on Monday. My family and I have never asked or needed assistance of any kind and hopefully this is the first and lst time but I am glad we experienced it with this fine organization.

M. Barrera and Family.
