I discovered Soldiers' Angels in October of 2020. As I read about them and learned what they do, I knew I needed to volunteer and be a part of this wonderful organization. Since, I have had so many fulfilling happenings - I have been able to help put smiles on others or let them know that they are thought of and appreciated. It is a heartwarming experience and I highly recommend Soldiers' Angels to military personnel for support and for those looking for an amazing volunteer experience.

Thanks to soldiers angels our family had such a memorable Christmas for our four children despite a financial hardship from a COVID cutdown of employees to my husband and myself unable to work due to continued disability. Thanks for being here for us. I pray good karma for you and hope we can pull through better this year and spread the blessings of love.

This org is AMAZING! They make us caregiver/spouses, of our country’s Heros, feel like what we go through is appreciated. Between the cards we receive from all over the country, throughout the year, to the adopt-a-family at Christmas. They truly show how they support and care for not only our military personnel but also their families!!!

We had a wonderful experience with Soldiers' Angels and our sponsors! This was the first time I applied for support through Soldiers' Angels. I wasn't sure they would be able to help, as I didn't request assistance until the 4th of December. I received an immediate reply to my application and my sponsors contacted me the following day. I was so relieved to know my son would have a great Christmas (and he did)! My sponsors were incredibly responsive and generous! I have the deepest gratitude for them and for Soldiers' Angels!

I was told about soldiers angels from a caseworker. It was an amazing experience to be helped so quickly by people that have given in depth thought to what some struggling military families need. After one of the toughest years of our lives the help provided took a weight off our shoulders and truly warmed our hearts.

This was our first (and hopefully only) time ever being faced with the need to utilize a program like this. We are normally on the other end of it. So it is safe to say, our pride was a little tattered when we finally decided to apply. This program was truly a godsend. From the ease of the application to being matched up (or technically chosen by) and angel, it was an incredible experience. Our angel went above and beyond to make this Christmas an amazing one for our boys. She listened and understood and never once judged our situation. She is truly an angel on Earth and I hope to continue to stay in touch with her going forward. Erin was exactly the 'Santa' my family needed to end the terrible year of 2020.

We are a disabled veteran family (I am the caregiver) and were "adopted" for Christmas after a particularly rough year, both financially, emotionally and healthy wise (for more than just my husband). We are so grateful to Soldiers' Angels! They made our Christmas special for our children, and us. Our children received gifts we otherwise couldn't have provided. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

We fell on hard times the past 2 years and needed help with Christmas for our children. This group has helped our family twice! Its so nice to know there are people out there that helps military families rather they are active or disabled vets. My kids got a true blessing each year from this group and the volunteers that stepped up and helped the children. It means more than you will ever know that there was smiles on 3 children on Christmas! Im sure grateful for the blessings they received! Thank you!!

I am a disabled female veteran who has two children at home. Due to this Covid-19, my finances took a nose dive. Without this organization, my children would not have received ANYTHING for Christmas. I was very pleased with the results and my sponsor - She was an Angel for my children. This is a great resource for veterans.

My Veterans expressed sheer gratitude for the assistance their families received during this holiday season. The assistance was provided while my families were experiencing some pretty difficult times. The families expressed the program exceeded their expectations and brightened their holiday spirits. The world is currently experiencing some turmoil but the idea there are agencies/individuals who still make serving others a focus makes my heart smile. Thanks for all you do:)

I was so distraught and panicked about Christmas so much had happened in September of 2019 to my children and I. That I did not have much hope for Christmas even being special for my children. Just when I thought hope was over I got a call from a business call Pull A Part they told me they sponsored my family through Soldier's Angel's and I should come and pick up the gifts. My children was blessed with clothing and toys . I was especially grateful for the clothing because they definitely needed new winter clothes. I just want to say Thank you to Soldier's Angel's, Pull A Part on Henrico road, and all the other people that sponsor families through this program you all are truly a blessing.

I had a great experience working with this nonprofit agency. I need help for Christmas getting presents for my daughter and they connected me with families willing to help me in the 11th Hour. I never expected the amount of help that I received.

While appreciated none the less, some charity's offer aid and then give next to nothing. Soldiers Angels has things in place to prevent that as well as connecting families who are truly in the spirit of giving.

Sincerely,
Carlos & Sophia Girardot

This is a wonderful organization. I know it is easy to say that, but they genuinely change and enrich lives through their work. As a caregiver, receiving something like a small bottle of lotion in the mail with a card means so much. It reminds me that I am valuable, and reminds me to take care of myself. And for my husband a disabled veteran, getting thank-you cards out of the blue changed his entire demeanor during a dark time for us...and they just kept coming! I cannot say enough great things. This organization is a blessing. Thank you!

I'm an Iraq war veteran and single mom living on Veterans Comp, every December I always stress on how I will be able to afford gifts for my daughter's birthday (Dec 13) and Christmas, she's still believes in Santa so that adds the Santa gifts as well as gifts from mommy. I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders when I got news that my family had been picked for adoption. Without the generous kind loving volunteer who choose to help out a struggling Veteran I honestly don't know what I would've done. The happiness in my daughter's face Christmas Morning was unbelievable and I owe it the Soldiers Angel's and my Adopter.
