Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Disaster Aid, Disaster Preparedness & Relief Services, Military & Veterans Organizations, Travelers Aid, Veterans

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 have volunteered with soldier's angels since 2012. I started because I wanted to share my stories with deployed military, I stayed because every last one of them truly appreciates our volunteers. I surprised my veteran dad with a birthday surprise from hundreds of angels from across the country sending him cards and well wishes. He loved it! He bragged about that for months. Other seniors in his complex were so jealous. It was the best gift I could have given him.

Soldier's Angels is the best charitable organization that I have worked for that focuses on deployed and veteran service members. Every one is in the organization to support our service members. It is an honor and privilege to give what I can to the effort to protect and defend America.

I'm a volunteer with this group on several different teams - Letter Writing, Cards Plus, Chaplain Support and DEployed Soldiers. The fact that they have different groups for us to work through to support our soldiers is perfect - they are responsive to questions, always encourage us and provide a foundation/way for us to give back to those who protect our way of life. And those are just the groups I work with - there are many more. This a wonderful organization. I've supported them via donations for many years, but in 2016 decided to do more to give back. Glad they are there for us, and for our men & women in the armed forces.

I've been on the letter writing team since this past August and I absolutely love everything about it. What Soldiers' Angels does is something so incredible and unique and I am so proud to be apart of it. Out of all the community service I have done this is always my favorite. Getting to read some of the notes the soldiers leave for us even gets me choked up sometimes. Those people serving our country deserve everything.

I'm on the Letter Writing Team and so far I'm very impressed. As a veteran, I'm interested in helping others vets and boosting moral. I enjoy writing letters and sending cards knowing that they make someone's day a little brighter. This is a great organization.

I've been a volunteer since 2004! Love, love, love soldier's angels. It feels so good to be able to express appreciation to our troops through cards, letters, care packages, and so many other ways.

I've been volunteering with Soldiers' Angels in Seattle since last year and have enjoyed all the opportunities available to donate my time to support our local vets and deployed servicemen and woman. The organization truly cares about our soldiers and their families and has been improving and adding more programs where possible.

Soldiers Angels. The name says it all. A group of warm, funny, artistic individuals who enjoy giving back, bringing friendship and comfort to as many soldiers as possible. I joined this group about 7 months ago. I can honestly state I have never found so much simple joy in my heart, my mind as writing to soldiers I've never met, never heard of, but knowing they are far from home, family, friends, their own personal lives, for me, for America, is the most incredible and awe inspiring gift to all of us. I currently have 7 seven soldiers I write to all the time, and I know the letters hopefully bring a smile, a tiny piece of comfort and laughter to all of these soldiers. I have an e-pal I write to every week, I have a DAT I write every week and send care packages to, and I am thrilled to be working with a family out of Texas, whose husband/father is on his 3rd deployment for Adopt A Family for Christmas. With the exception of two more gifts I have quite happily completed my shopping - now for wrapping/shipping. I received my first letter back two weeks ago and was over the moon! This solder told me I am now 'my friend forever'. Wow. He most assuredly is one for me as well.

Soldiers Angels. Yes - we are indeed. Bringing light into a world we know nothing about and sharing our joy, compassion and families with. Love. That is what Soldiers Angels is all about. Love.

I've been an angel for just over a month, and I can truly say, this is a wonderful organization. I've been searching for so long for a way to help our troops both overseas and back home, but worried about just sending my money to an organization and not knowing where my money would actually be going. I can do as much or as little as I want with my OWN money here. I have chosen to mail letters and care packages as I want to, so I know what it costs and exactly who is getting it because the soldiers or families of soldiers have to sign up and provide necessary info before being considered for the program. It's truly rewarding. I absolutely love my epals, and I just mailed out my first 2 overseas letters today!

I began volunteering this summer with Soldiers Angels as a letter writer. I discovered the organization from a Facebook post on Humans on the Homefront and thought it would be a great way for me to give back in my spare time as I was job searching. I have really enjoyed writing letters to our men and women overseas and I know that I'm making a difference.
