Rating: 4.8 stars   457 reviews

Issues: Disaster Aid, Human Services, Veterans

Location: 2700 NE Loop 410, Suite 310 San Antonio TX 78217 USA

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.
Geographic areas served: the United States and around the world

I visited the Soldiers' Angels give away today. 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 fabulous! I was greeted and helped by the most enthusiastic and kind volunteers. There was a great variety of useful household merchandise, as well as some pleasant cool items for the kids. It was a true blessing to be afforded the opportunity to be a recipient of this giveaway. Kudos for a job well done by all involved in this event. And I say to you "Thank you for your service to our military veterans!" God Bless!

Visited Soldier's Angels today and must say, "The experience and staff were absolutely fabulous!" Every volunteer there was extremely helpful and eager to assist me with migrating my way through a variety of well organized items to choose from. Although I was not aware of the opportunity to swing by the Titan building to shop, having witnessed a stream of veterans come in was an indication that their campaign to get the word out had worked. I appreciate the support provided and am grateful for the support Soldier's Angels provides veterans. The most memorable expression of gratitude was when I arrived and left, the volunteers, almost in unison, exclaimed, "Thank you for our Service!" In return, I must say, "Thank you for your Service as well!"

Absolutely fantastic!!! My wife found out about the giveaway event from Facebook and Craigslist. We honestly did not know what to expect. We thought that we would have to go through a bunch of red tape and probably get some measly gift. We were in for a major shocker. From the second we walked in, it took about 30 seconds to verify the military background and then they gave us bags and told us the simple instructions. There was so much to choose from and when we filled up the staff kept saying to get more. We had about all we could carry, plus more. Naturally, money is tight with a 6 month old baby, even the smallest things help out and add up quickly. We probably added up about $300 worth of household goods. I have never been to anything like this and the fact that this organization is willing to get and give away the vast variety of things makes me believe that there are still some great people and even greater organizations out there.

Very well organized, I took my daughter with me and she had plenty of toys to choose from. The staff was extremely helpful and went out of their way to assist you. Plus I was able to get some items for my house that were very useful.

This is such an awesome organization! The timing couldn’t have been more perfect. I was going through a real tough time. I had just lost my job, my house was being foreclosed on, and I was slowly losing everything that I had. The giveaway event this morning came as a gift from above. Just like their name says; They are truly an angel for our troops. In the future I will do whatever is in my power to support this organization so they can continue to provide excellent services to our deserving veterans.
