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.

Soldiers angels has really helped my family out since May of last year. I have attended many of the mobile food pantries for veterans and every time they have exceeded my expectation. The volunteers are very thankful for the veterans service and they really show compassion and gratitude for what we have done. I truly recommend this organization to any military family. They also offer a lot of opportunities to volunteer. It is truly a great feeling to have volunteers with such kind hearts helping out military families every time they have a chance. THANK YOU Soldiers' Angels!!!

Just not sure when you sign up for a time it doesn't seem to matter. If some one put 1:00 but was here in line at 9:00. They'd still get to go through the line at the monthly food pantry

I like the mobile food program but it would be nice if we were given non expired items/spoiled produce. Also starting on time would be great.

I've been volunteering with Soldiers' Angels for years - sending blankets, modified clothing for the wounded, hand and feet warmers for the wounded, letters, baby items for expecting mothers, adopting families at Christmas, and care packages are just some of the things I've been involved in. There are so many opportunities to get involved in so many different ways. This group truly cares for our veterans, troops and their families.

I have volunteered with soldier's angels since 2012. I started because I wanted to share my stories with deployed military, I stayed because every last one of them truly appreciates our volunteers. I surprised my veteran dad with a birthday surprise from hundreds of angels from across the country sending him cards and well wishes. He loved it! He bragged about that for months. Other seniors in his complex were so jealous. It was the best gift I could have given him.

Soldier's Angels is the best charitable organization that I have worked for that focuses on deployed and veteran service members. Every one is in the organization to support our service members. It is an honor and privilege to give what I can to the effort to protect and defend America.

I'm a volunteer with this group on several different teams - Letter Writing, Cards Plus, Chaplain Support and DEployed Soldiers. The fact that they have different groups for us to work through to support our soldiers is perfect - they are responsive to questions, always encourage us and provide a foundation/way for us to give back to those who protect our way of life. And those are just the groups I work with - there are many more. This a wonderful organization. I've supported them via donations for many years, but in 2016 decided to do more to give back. Glad they are there for us, and for our men & women in the armed forces.

I've been on the letter writing team since this past August and I absolutely love everything about it. What Soldiers' Angels does is something so incredible and unique and I am so proud to be apart of it. Out of all the community service I have done this is always my favorite. Getting to read some of the notes the soldiers leave for us even gets me choked up sometimes. Those people serving our country deserve everything.

I'm on the Letter Writing Team and so far I'm very impressed. As a veteran, I'm interested in helping others vets and boosting moral. I enjoy writing letters and sending cards knowing that they make someone's day a little brighter. This is a great organization.
