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.

I volunteer at Soldiers' Angels in three teams, Letter Writing, Cards Plus, and Sewing and Crafting. I find the time spent sending mail to our soldiers both current and veteran and their families to be very rewarding. I'm medically unable to serve in our military, and this is a great alternative for me. My kids even like coloring pictures to send with my letters. It's a great way to teach them that our rights and freedom come from so many brave men and women who put their own lives on hold to serve our country. Occasionally I'll hear back from a soldier, and it completely makes my week.
Soldiers angels is an awesome organization that distributes food once a month to Soldiers and their families. They are always friendly and courteous. They are an awesome help to those who are serving and have served our country.
Soldiers' Angels seems to be growing and dynamic. I have been involved with the Detroit food program since last October, and the actual distribution has quickly grown in popularity. With this growth, the process has changed monthly in positive efforts to manage the growth. I will continue to telephone in my registration.
I am so grateful to have been served by people who honestly care about you. Never once was I made to feel bad because of having used the food bank unlike other non military related places. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I support our troops here and abroad any way I can. Soldiers' Angels is a direct way to help the troops NOW. Just a little time to show our troops we love them, care about them, pray for them and their families makes a world of difference to our honorable men and women in the service of our country. You can donate little or lot, money and/or time. They have great leaders that keep you in the loop and awesome FB page.
