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

I am a volunteer with this organization and know many of the leaders from other activities we have shared. This is a lean, spunky, passionate, grassroots organization that has mobilized "any average American" ,and some pretty amazing ones, too; to support our veterans and their families. They exemplify the idea that anyone can help, we all can do something and it can make a huge impact on someone's life. To think that they have been doing this since 2003 is pretty amazing. Today they continue to evolve, grow and give!

This is definitely not your everyday charity. It's dynamic, and there is always someone to write to, to bake for, to send care packages to...and you work to your own strengths. Whether you send out 50 letters a month or 5 letters a month, no one pushes for more. I've met wonderful people through SA, I think I joined up in 2009. I can't imagine not angeling. Nope. Can't imagine it.

I have been a volunteer with this group for several years. I really like feeling like I'm making a difference for someone and that I can show my appreciation to our service members. And I love hearing from military members that tell me how much it was meant to them. A great organization full of great people.

I've been with Soldiers Angels since the beginning, back in 2004. I started as a hobby while on a leave of absence after having surgery. I have been a proud adoptor, a baker, a letter writing support and part of the special ops team. I have met many amazing men and women that have served this great nation and I am proud to say I am still friends with many of them. this is a great organization that really does what it can for our heroes deployed and their families so they know just how much they are appreciated.

I have been volunteering by adopting soldiers since 2007 and this is an amazing organization. To be of service in this small way by offering support and boosting morale to our troops is such a blessing to me and I am honored to help.

I've been a Soldier's Angel for 7 years and I love it. This is an amazing organization. It is a blessing to show love and support to our soldiers and let them know they are in our thoughts and prayers and our country is proud of them. I have met some incredible men and women serving our country and they are so grateful for the letters and packages. They can't believe a total stranger would take the time to boost morale and remind them of home and what they are serving for. I get so much joy back by giving to the soldier's through Soldier's Angels. SA does an enormous service to our country and the money and supplies donated to this non profit really make an impact. They are extremely fiscally responsible as a charity and I wouldn't invest my time and money with them if they weren't.

I chose to participate in Soldiers Angels because it makes me feel useful to our deployed military, while giving them a little taste of home.
Being able to write to a deployed soldier and sharing day to day life (which they crave) warms my heart.
Sending them a package every month of needed items, snacks and surprises is so worth the time and energy. Creating a theme and decorating the box according to that theme brings me joy. And, according to the responses of our soldiers, is like Christmas every month.
I just couldn't recommend a better or more worthwhile organization.

I always planned to become a volunteer for the military when I retired from my job. I got so busy with my grandchildren and traveling with my husband that time seemed to get away from me. I found out about Solider's Angels and it is the PERFECT fit. I can write letters from wherever I am in the country and I can bake and send goodies. It is a great organization and it is very well run and organized.

I wanted to give back to our Soldiers, but could not find anywhere to volunteer that was close to home. That's when I found Soldier's Angels. I love the idea that I can write to our Soldiers to thank them for their service.
If I choose, I can also adopt a soldier that would allow for me to send care packages, or baked goods as well. There are so many opportunities within SA so that you can give back in a way that suits you. I am so grateful that such an organization exists.

My family and I adopted our first soldier in January, 2010. We did not know what types of items to send or what to say in our letters. Sometimes we felt like our letters were a bit boring, just writing about our day to day lives. We have discovered, after a dozen or so soldiers, that the day to day stuff is what matters the most. These brave men and women are serving our country so we can continue to be free to do the day to day stuff.

Soldiers Angels has opened up the world for us. We have gotten to know some amazing people! We are blessed in that we have been able to stay in touch with several of our soldiers, even being able to meet 2 of them and their families.

In our efforts to support them, encourage them and lift their spirits, it is our hearts that have been touched.

I started with Soldiers's Angels almost 5 years ago when I was looking for a way to give back. My husband had received cards and letters from complete stranges and it totally amazed me! Since that time I have been able to share joy and have my heart blessed all at the same time. When you think you are blessing others.....just wait....it comes back to you 10 fold!

This is my first time as a volunteer. My daughter several years ago adopted a soldier and we spoiled him and the group of guys he was with the entire time they were deployed. We sent one huge box a week with everything you could think if that would be enjoyable. This time I have a shop of 8 navy guys and a female in the ARMY. She and I have made contact several times and she is awesome. I hope that one day I get to meet her in person. Until then she will be applied with Oreos and rice Krispy treats. Well and other things. This is a great organization and I am proud to be part of it.

I learned of Soldiers' Angels in 2007 from a blog that I read. I went to the website and saw the number of soldiers waiting to be adopt and it was a very high number. I decided right then and there to adopt a soldier. My first adoptee was a Marine. Later on his wife sent me an email to let me know that he got home fine from his tour and that the boxes of goodies and toiletries that I sent were the only boxes he received while he was over there. That broke my heart and made my heart swell with pride all in the same moment. I don't think I've done anything that gives me so much for doing so little. I keep every note and email that my soldiers have sent through the years. I feel like they are my kids, for the most part, since most of them are 30 or younger.

I can't think of an organization more deserving of this gift than Soldiers' Angels. All of the angels are volunteer. I hope that one day we won't be needed, but I will continue to adopt soldiers as often as I can.

This is one of the best charities around. Lost of support from all others in Soldiers Angels, and all of your efforts go directly to deployed military men and women. Some are silent but you know you have made a difference in their lives by sending cheer or a favorite food from the states. When you hear back from them, it brightens you day! You get so much more back than you give! Soldier's Angels help the deployed, their caregivers and vets through cards and packages. Everything makes a direct impact on an individual. Best volunteer organization around!

This is an amazing organization that works hard to provide support and encouragement to service members and their families. It's an all inclusive organization that works to remember veteran and active duty service members. In addition families of those members are encouraged and supported. I love being a part of SA!
