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.

I am a Soldiers Angel. I spend my time and send my love with every note and letter I write. I am grateful for this opportunity to serve my country by supporting our soldiers who are serving theirs.

Love this Group of Volunteers! The teams of Soldiers' Angels go above and beyond. They are SO AWESOME to be a part of. SA has allowed me and my family to connect and show our love and support to military members and their families that we wouldn't have been able to connect with otherwise. As an "angel" I am so beyond blessed to be a part of Soldiers' Angels.

I have been blessed to be part of this organization since 2008. Being a high school teacher I was able to involve my school and community in projects that involved us sending over 50 boxes to Soldiers who were deployed. Even at my current job members of my team donate to help me fill care packages! I am surrounded at my desk by pictures and letters that soldiers have written back to me which motivates me to keep going knowing that what I do matters. I believe that because I chose not to serve it is my duty (and honor) to serve those who do! If you think of the amazing sacrifice these brave men and women make for us you won't hesitate to join and/or donate.

Hi. I joined Soldiers Angels Writing geam. Love the work that they do. Usually for lent a give something up. But this year I decided to play it forward and help someone out. So I found this we site about what Soldiers Angels do so I signed up. Another reason I signed up is after I saw American Sniper. That was had a great impact o me. He was a hero impact my ok and so are all our services personnel. Right now I have 13 soldiers I write, email, gmail or send cards to. I am so blessed. God Bless our soldiers and may they come home safely.

I found Soldier's Angels almost 3 years ago. It was one of the best things I could have done. Not only is it a great personal experience connecting with the other angels, but the soldiers I have adopted have changed my life. It is so fulfilling to work with individual soldiers and learn their life stories. While it is critical that we help support the military as a whole, to have a face and contact info of a citizen back home can make or break a Soldier's deployment. What Soldier's Angels does is priceless.

The women that run this organization are always there. They are quick to respond to any questions or issues you may have. I recommend them all the time.

I have been amazed at how they care for our Veterans. They provide patient meals in the VA hospitals, distribute care and comfort items to the patients,

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 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.
