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

Rating: 5 stars  

This nonprofit organization is uplifting not only to its volunteers but also the men and women that serve our country as well as the caregivers who care for loved one returning home from a conflict and our veterans who also deal with many issues . Soldiers angels is a class act and I am glad to be part of it.

I just LOVE Soldiers' Angels. The concept of giving to our troops overseas and our veterans here in the US is something that is dear to my heart as my husband was in the Navy. I like that you can pick your troop member based on your likes and wants. Epals are great too! I'm sure they love getting our letters and we like their replies in return. I really wish I could financially do more but epals is a start. If you are thinking about helping out...please do. It's for a great cause! Thanks Soldiers' Angels!

I am a new volunteer to Soldiers' Angels. I started two months ago. I am an Angel for one soldier (so far) and am also on the letter writing team. This organization is OUTSTANDING. Everyone is kind, helpful and compassionate about supporting our troops. I have no family in the military, I simply wanted to support our military in a personal way. I find myself considering items for my adopted soldier every time I am shopping. I highly recommend you check us out! You won't regret it! I am a member of two teams.......both have their own leader. I have emailed them both, often with questions in the beginning. They were quick to respond, helpful and just plain nice. I am honestly surprised at how volunteering for SA has made my life better.

I have volunteered for many organizations over the years. Soldiers Angels, by far, is the most amazing, rewarding experience.
Each team I chose to be a part of has a team leader & a private Facebook group. The team leaders are very involved. From day one, they have responded to my emails in a timely manner. The FB groups are full of other volunteers who are willing to share their experiences & offer advice. I have not read one negative comment on anyone's feed. That in itself is amazing......virtual strangers getting along & helping each other. The respect among each other is refreshing.
I look forward to many years of volunteering here.

I've just begun corresponding with our troops via Soldiers Angels and have found it to be so rewarding.

I never knew how great the need was for our service members out in the field. I'm so grateful for the organization and the other angels who are working to uphold the morale of our soldiers and their families.

Show your support for the troops in tangible, personal ways through one of a variety of service options offered through Soldiers Angels. You can adopt a soldier and make an impact on a personal level every week with letters and care packages, or you can donate time/money to take care of a number of soldiers and their families through wounded, veteran or family support programs. This is a great nonprofit for armed forces support on all levels.

this is the most organized and well managed non-profit i've ever seen. each team is managed by a team leader and everyone chooses the level of involvement that they can handle. it is a warm and welcoming place and i am honored to be able to give back to our soldiers in such a great way.

I love Soldiers' Angels. The leadership is just great. They make helping our brave men and women easy. I have a shero who I have adopted. Every time she gets a package, I get an enthusiastic email. Her entire team loves the packages because she shares everything. If you are looking for an organization to give back to our nation's heroes, I highly recommend SA!!!

I just started volunteering with this group and I love it. They are fantastic to work with. I especially enjoy it because I feel like I am having a direct impact on the lives of service men and women as well as our veterans. I can select where my efforts are going. I especially love that I can participate when it is convenient to my schedule. Great organization who truly cares about those they are helping!

Soldiers' Angels is a dedicated group of volunteers that let our service men and women know that we are so very thankful for their commitment to keeping our country safe. It's amazing that just sending a letter or care package can make a difference in their day. I have 3 deployed service members that I write to and adopted a veteran and his family for Christmas. I am so honored to be part of this organization. We are making a difference in the lives of these dedicated men and women!
