Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Disaster Aid, Disaster Preparedness & Relief Services, Human 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

Programs: - Adopt a Soldier: Individualized support throughout deployment - Angel Bakers: Homemade treats for the deployed - Chaplain Support Team: Help chaplains support the troops - Ladies of Liberty: Extra TLC for deployed females - Letter Writing Team: Personal letters for the deployed - SA Germany: Supporting medevac'd wounded/ill and medical staff at Landstuhl - Valour-IT: Providing adaptive laptops for the severely wounded or injured - VA Hospital Support - Living Legends: Comforting the loved ones left behind when a warrior falls on the battlefield - Operation Top Knot: Handmade gifts & virtual baby showers - Adopt-A-Family: Holiday adoption program to support a family's holiday needs - Women of Valor: Support to female caregivers of Post 9-11 wounded, ill and injured service members. - Sewing Team: Handmade blankets, scarves and pillowcases - Cards Plus Team: Extra TLC for soldiers and families

I’ve volunteered with Soldiers Angels for almost a decade. The money you spend goes directly to the soldiers you are supporting because you choose how you support other than a validation fee which is nominal . It is truly a chartity that exists because of its volunteers and offers a direct way to care for our deployed armed forces while also providing assistance to veterans. I couldn’t be prouder to be able to serve those who serve with the assistance of this team.

I have been a volunteer with Soldiers' Angels for several years now and I know I get more out of it than I put in. It's so amazing to hear back from someone you have written to - and note that out of 10 troops, you may hear from 1! - and that is what makes it so special. I enjoy participating in more than just deployed adoptions as I am also on the Hospice Team and the Letter Writing team. Soldiers' Angels has something for everyone.

I have worked with several organizations that support our deployed service members. While all of them are good, Soldiers' Angels is the best I've worked with to date. There are several ways to participate; some require money and some don't. It's all up to the volunteer for to choose his/her level of effort. There is a small monthly fee (minimum $1), but that enables the website to be kept current and any staff to respond to requests very quickly.

Soldier' s Angel always thinks of veterans, deployed soldiers and their families first. Their love of the country and thankfulness of what these men and women did and do for our country. To keep us safe and free. I have recently started volunteering sending out cards, letters and have adopted a deployed soldier and it is truly amazing what the other men and women who volunteer do. I am always in awe of the love and dedication these people put forth. I really wish more people knew about this organization. It has changed my perspective on so many things in a short amount of time already. God Bless America

I've been involved with Soldier's Angels since 2009. They do a lot for our Service Members; keeping us informed how we can help out and there are numerous ways we can help so it's not a matter of how much time or money one can afford to give- every bit counts and every bit helps our military! It's a very organized group and the communication between the Leaders and Point Angels and us Angels is terrific (communication is very important). It's a super positive group of people who are quick to offer encouragement, praise and assistance often. We are kept informed with frequent input from our leaders and the newsletters are informative and up to date. I feel good about being a part of this group to serve those who give so very much serving our country!!

I've been adopting soldiers since 2009! I'm on my 13th soldier. I used to write to 'any soldier' through 'Operation Dear Abby' when I was in college. I have friends and family and now children of friends who serve (served) in the military. I wanted a way to Really/ Actually help the men and women who serve our country. I am very happy to be a part of Soldier's Angels because I feel that they are a REAL organization; meaning I Trust them and Trust that the monetary donations that I make are Truly going where SA says they are going and though each of 'my' soldiers hasn't been able to write to me, I trust that the letters and packages are going to soldiers who need the support, encouragement and goodies I send. The soldiers I have heard from tell me how 'every little bit helps' and 'it makes them feel good to know they are thought of by us here in the States'. I value my freedom and love the USA and am happy that with SA I have a way to Actually Tell and Show my appreciation and thankfulness Directly to The People who are Serving our country!

My parents are both Army veterans, my husband is retired Air Force. I have several brothers and sisters also on active duty - some reaching retirement. I have strong roots as long term military "family" and have always searched for ways to contribute and be a part of the military tradition.
For the last several years, I have been honored to be a part of the Soldier's Angels crafting team. I spend countless hours on ball fields and chorus rehearsals with my teenagers and spend that time crocheting. Soldier's Angels has given me the opportunity to take those hours and turn them in to giving moments for our troops - all during the time that I spend with my family.
With every stitch, every skein of yarn, I feel that connection to our service men and women who will ultimately have a rough time in their lives brightened by the gifts I send.
Soldier's Angels has provided me the platform to continue to give of myself.

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 proudly volunteered as an "Angel" for almost 8 years and will continue to do so as long as possible. It's an outstanding organization. The love and support for our active service members, their families and our veterans is heartwarming. I think I get as much joy writing letters just as much as those on the receiving end when they hear their name at mail call. I would recommend anyone looking for a way to give back to those who serve to sign on with Soldiers' Angels.

I have been a volunteer "Angel" since 2010. In that time, all of the hours spent letter writing and sending care packages to our deployed military personnel has been a total labor of love. I would recommend Soldiers' Angels to anyone looking for a way to support our brave ones in harm's way and also our veterans and their families.

I started with Soldier's Angels Letter Writing Team 3 years ago, to support the Troops overseas. I thought being so far away in Australia that I would blend in and probably never hear from anyone. Well so not true at all. The team leaders have been patient and wonderful & to my surprise the troops have proven to be curious about where I live and what I do to help out. All of us are volunteers and we do get recognised for our help and support. There is nothing like Soldiers Angels here in Australia on such a huge scale. I feel so much a part of this wonderfully supportive caring team, that it puts a smile on my face every day. I even wear Red for Friday's now. Woo Hoo

I love being a soldier Angel volunteer. It makes a person feel so good to help a soldier overseas. They also send letters to Veterans, caregivers of military, and send baby items before The arrivals of a new baby. The Soldiers Angels organization wants military to always receive mail. We also send birthday cards to them and to their cildren, Sympathy catds, New Baby cards.

My Life has taken me all around the world into hot spots and places angels really do fear to tread and so far i have this amazing organisation to be the most transparent, honest,honorable, genuine and simply easiest charity i have ever been involved with, The level of love is simply overflowing form each posting on face book to the warmth of the team leaders down to the random letters of free mail. The title says it all these dedicated folks truly are Gods worker bees here on earth.

I have been with Soldiers Angels for about 6 months now and I love it. It is a wonderful program that supports our Troops. There are many different options available to show your support. You can write letters, send care packages, send birthday cards or much more. I have always been a vocal supporter of our brave men and women of the Armed Forces but now I get to put my "money where my mouth is", so to speak. No matter what your income this organization allows everyone to participate in helping and showing love to those who protect us everyday. I am so glad I found Soldiers Angels and I tell everyone I can about it as well. I have received many letters and emails from my soldiers and they express their gratitude and love. It is very rewarding.

Soldier's Angel's is an amazing organization that makes such a huge difference for our veterans and active duty military. I have heard firsthand from deployed heroes how much the care packages and letters have brightened their days. I love the idea of supporting our heroes who sacrifice so much for us.

I learned about Soldiers' Angels through volunteering at the VA Hospital. It amazes me how many people from all over are helping and giving in big and small ways in each area of Soldiers' Angels. I want everyone to know how important this organization is because it is supporting the most important (and precious) people from this country.

I've had a number of years of experience with this great group and all the wonderful work they do to support U.S. Service Members of all the branches of our military whether currently deployed or as veterans.

I recently re-joined as a volunteer who sends cards and letters to our service members and love sending support and encouragement or even just a birthday greeting to those deployed around the world.

I am currently helping do a Warm Feet for Warriors drive with my Civil War reeanactors in Southern California. I have seen so many of the boxes filled with love and baked goods go out to our military. The different ways one can help is astounding. It is a blessing for us to have our Military but a bigger blessing for them to have Soldiers'Angels!
Thank you all you do,
