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 is my first time as a volunteer. My daughter several years ago adopted a soldier and we spoiled him and the group of guys he was with the entire time they were deployed. We sent one huge box a week with everything you could think if that would be enjoyable. This time I have a shop of 8 navy guys and a female in the ARMY. She and I have made contact several times and she is awesome. I hope that one day I get to meet her in person. Until then she will be applied with Oreos and rice Krispy treats. Well and other things. This is a great organization and I am proud to be part of it.

I just joined Soldiers Angels and have already felt so blessed to be a part of this wonderful organization. Any way that I can make a difference in a soldiers life, means the world to me and Soldiers Angels allows me to do so. They have a very strong support system along with willingly helpful volunteers. Keep it up!!

I learned of Soldiers' Angels in 2007 from a blog that I read. I went to the website and saw the number of soldiers waiting to be adopt and it was a very high number. I decided right then and there to adopt a soldier. My first adoptee was a Marine. Later on his wife sent me an email to let me know that he got home fine from his tour and that the boxes of goodies and toiletries that I sent were the only boxes he received while he was over there. That broke my heart and made my heart swell with pride all in the same moment. I don't think I've done anything that gives me so much for doing so little. I keep every note and email that my soldiers have sent through the years. I feel like they are my kids, for the most part, since most of them are 30 or younger.

I can't think of an organization more deserving of this gift than Soldiers' Angels. All of the angels are volunteer. I hope that one day we won't be needed, but I will continue to adopt soldiers as often as I can.

I joined soldiers angelse in 1998 and have been an active member since.. this is one great organization as member deal directly with men and women in the military. Some are silent while others interact with you. No soldier should be forgotten.

This is one of the best charities around. Lost of support from all others in Soldiers Angels, and all of your efforts go directly to deployed military men and women. Some are silent but you know you have made a difference in their lives by sending cheer or a favorite food from the states. When you hear back from them, it brightens you day! You get so much more back than you give! Soldier's Angels help the deployed, their caregivers and vets through cards and packages. Everything makes a direct impact on an individual. Best volunteer organization around!

I don't volunteer for the recognition. I volunteer because this organization makes a difference with the service members defending America. This is my way of saying Thank you! And it is noticed and appreciated by the deployed military.

I joined Soldier's Angels based on its commitment to serve deployed soldiers, veterans, and wounded soldiers. The soldiers are truly appreciative to get letters and care packs from the volunteers in this organization. This is one of the few charitable organizations where most of the financial support goes directly to the soldiers in the field and not administrative costs.

I have been writing letters and adopting soldiers since December 2012. I have so many family member who are or were in the military and know first hand how important letters from home are. I can tell from the letters and communications i receive back, that the troops really do appreciate the cards/letters/care packs -- even if they are from people they do not know. This organization allows me the opportunity to express my thanks to the troops on an individual basis, and to let them know how important their work is to America.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

would want at least the postage on my care packs to my adopted soldier be tax deductible.

This is an amazing organization that works hard to provide support and encouragement to service members and their families. It's an all inclusive organization that works to remember veteran and active duty service members. In addition families of those members are encouraged and supported. I love being a part of SA!
