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.

the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, their families, and Veterans of all eras.

Reviews for Soldiers' Angels

I have been a volunteer with soldiers angels for over eight years. SA is such a diverse organization that you can find a volunteer opportunity to match your interest. Research their website and find all the different possibilities to help currently deployed, veterans, and VA organizations. You'll be glad you did. I feel blessed to be associated with soldiers angels

I have been a volunteer with Soldiers Angels for several years. It is a magnificent organization full of people with lots of love to give to those guys and girls who sacrifice so much for our country. I love being a Soldiers Angel because I know that every item goes directly to the service member. The greatest people you will ever meet are members of our military. They sacrifice everything ...their family, friends, jobs, hobbies and sadly, sometimes even their life for we the people.

This is my first year with Soldiers Angels and it has been such a blessing to be able to communicate with and send needed items to dedicated members of our military. They do so much for every citizen of the US and are so often overlooked. My experience has been that the soldiers are very humble and gracious. They are so appreciative of the items we send them. Little things that we take for granted everyday means a lot to them. I am so grateful for the opportunity that Soldiers Angels has entrusted me with to give a little back to our soldiers and let them know that we are here for them and support them.

Amazing group that I'm so proud to be a part of. Their support of our military and their families is truly inspiring. And the thanks I've gotten over the years from the military we support is truly wonderful

I recently joined Soldier's Angels and only wish I had done it sooner. Everyone involved from the Group and Team Leaders to the Angels themselves are such dedicated, loving and wonderful people. To see the level of commitment and enthusiasm each person brings to the loving task of supporting our Soldiers is truly uplifting. We need more people like these.

I have just recently joined the organization as an Angel but would have joined much sooner had I known about it - anything that supports troops (especially deployed troops during these troubled times). As a user the site has been super easy to use and understand plus I have been personally contacted by my team leader and given their contact info should I have any issues. Highly recommend it to anyone who would like to make a difference to a soldier's life and to let them know how much their sacrifice means to us.

I am currently on the letter writing team. This has been one of my best decision's I've made. It's wonderful to be connected to so many people who want to show support to our men and women that keep us safe each day. And to support our veterans any way we possibly can!!
