Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Disaster Aid, Disaster Preparedness & Relief 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

Soldier's Angels is an amazing organization. Helping to support our brave men and women through their deployment has been an honor. I am a part of a few teams: Cards Plus, Letter Writing, Living Legends, and Deployed Adoption. Each one of these teams I have seen the impact a simple action can bring. Our heroes don't ask for much; just to know that there are people out there how care about what they are sacrificing. While many of them are busy defending our country, it feels good to know that when you get a response, you know you are making a difference. I am not looking for recognition in what I do, I volunteer because I want to make a difference, show my support, and help these brave individuals stay strong and loved.
Thank you Soldier's Angels for allowing me to be a part of something bigger than myself!!!

I always enjoyed volunteering. But after college, starting a job, getting married, starting life, it was hard to get started again. Soldier's Angels has a way for anyone to volunteer from any level of giving. I enjoy writing. So being able to share my gratitude through word is such a joy. This organization is such a well-organized and dedicated one. The work everyone does to support our troops is encouraging and motivating. It's an honor to know that as a common citizen, I can still reach out and make a difference to the lives of some of our service members.

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.

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.

My family was looking for some Volunteer opportunities where we could all participate. Having a special place in our hearts for Veterans and their families - this became the best org for our family.

We love connecting with and supporting everyone involved in the deployments.

Soldiers Angels is a fantastic organization for supporting our troops. I am a member of the Letter Writing and Adoption teams. This is a means of giving back to those men and women who gave so much to us everyday. It is easy to join and means so much to those we support.

This is a great way to support our troops. You can do something small (write an email or letter) or you can do more by sending care packages or baked goods, etc. Soldier's Angels is very organized which makes it easy to participate. My team leader responds to my emails within a few hours answering any questions I might have. I love what Soldier's Angels does and I love being able to contribute. This is a wonderful charity!

I wanted to something "small" to help support our troops. I did a LOT of research and SA was the organization that stood out to me. There are SO many ways to help through this organization. I chose to do letter writing. It's been very rewarding knowing that I might be brightening someones day. The best is when you receive letters back from soldiers. I would recommend this group to anyone looking to start volunteering. Once you get into it there are so many additional paths you can choose to branch out.

Serving those who are serving us in the armed forces is an amazing and rewarding opportunity to give the gift of support and encouragement. This is a great way to recognize and honor their selfless dedication and devotion to our country and all of us and let them know we have not forgotten them. Sometimes it paves the way for lasting and true friendships.

I've only been volunteering for a month, but am impressed by how organized Soldiers' Angels is on many levels...very easy to access requests for letters, birthday cards, words of enocouragement, etc. When I e-mail my group leader or team leader, I hear back in just a couple of hours. A pleasure to be a part of this fantastic organization!
