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

This morning I attended a giveaway event in San Antonio sponsored by Soldiers' Angels. The event was much more than I expected. The merchandise was truly useful and the volunteers or employees (don't know which) were very friendly and helpful. I was able to find things for me, my wife and my son. I know that the merchandise was donated but they took the trouble to organize it and the event. It was fun looking for things and it was fun bringing it home. I never felt more appreciated as a veteran than I did this morning. Thank you.

Ms. Ruiz;;;;;Soldiers' Angels is a great organization. The timing for their veteran giveaway event was perfect, I recently lost my job and everything helps so the giveaway was a great help for me and my family. Being a spouse of a veteran, and I'm sure this applies to every spouse veteran, I appreciate all the help we can get and the people that volunteer their time for us. the volunteer were great and friendly. we thank you so much for all that you do.

Being able to donate items to the local Washington, DC VA and helping out our local veterans has been wonderful. The new support at the VA is a great way for Soldiers' Angels to spread its wings. Thank you for the opportunity!

I've never seen a more dedicated group of volunteers. They are our heroes' heroes. My experiences with Soldiers' Angels have made me want to get more involved. With my son in the military now, I appreciate all that this great organization does. From serving our deployed to helping our veterans, the opportunities of serving our nation's heroes are endless.

I have been donating to Soldiers' Angels now for about 8 years and love knowing that my donations are going directly towards supporting our troops, wounded, veterans, and our military families. I also enjoy receiving mail updates from SA, telling me how my donations are being used to aide our heroes.

Soldiers' Angels is a wonderful organization! I joined my freshman year of college - almost 8 years ago. It's been a wonderful experience, from adopting my first soldier, to doing fundraisers and to now volunteering as the DC Metro Service Area Manager - assisting our local volunteers and helping out at the various military medical centers and VAs while still supporting our deployed. Being able to assist our deployed troops, veterans, wounded and ill warriors and their families - ALL through the same organization - is truly an honor and privilege. I'm excited to see and experience the growth of Soldiers' Angels and being able to touch the lives of more of our Nation's Heroes.

Of all the things I have volunteered for, this is the one that brings aALPS smile to my heart and the one that I have seen make a real difference. I have been a Soldiers' Angel since 2008. I have had several great Colorado companies embrace supporting the efforts of supporting our men and women in uniform. and in 2011, I was one of the lucky few who got to join my Master Chief sister aboard the USS John C. Stennis for a Tiger Cruise from Hawaii to San Diego. While aboard, the Sailors all told me what a difference SA had made to their deployment. And while there I actually saw numerous SA packages come in and the first hand look on their faces is priceless. During my time I have kept in contact with several of my soldiers even after they have retired. This organization makes a huge difference in the lives of those that protect our FREEDOM! Love this group and am so proud to tell others about what they do. Great Americans.

Good morning Soldiers Angles staff, My names Raleigh Walker III MSG (ret). It was my greatest pleasure, back in 07-08 when I was deployed to Iraq, to be the contact person for Soldiers Angels. The back packs that were sent to my CSH through me were the best welcome packs that the wounded soldiers would receive once they entered our doors. I thanks you for you unbroken devotion and caring for our wounded soldiers. Keep the faith and courage alive for are past, present, and future deployed and wounded service men and women. Again ThanksRaleigh Walker , MSG(Ret)
