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.

Geographic areas served: the United States and around the world

Programs: - Adopt a Soldier: Individualized support throughout deployment - Angel Bakers: Homemade treats for the deployed - Chaplain Support Team: Help chaplains support the troops - Ladies of Liberty: Extra TLC for deployed females - Letter Writing Team: Personal letters for the deployed - SA Germany: Supporting medevac'd wounded/ill and medical staff at Landstuhl - Valour-IT: Providing adaptive laptops for the severely wounded or injured - VA Hospital Support - Living Legends: Comforting the loved ones left behind when a warrior falls on the battlefield - Operation Top Knot: Handmade gifts & virtual baby showers - Adopt-A-Family: Holiday adoption program to support a family's holiday needs - Women of Valor: Support to female caregivers of Post 9-11 wounded, ill and injured service members. - Sewing Team: Handmade blankets, scarves and pillowcases - Cards Plus Team: Extra TLC for soldiers and families

I am so glad to be a part of this organization! I love writing and feel I can truly make a difference with my letters. It's so beneficial knowing that I'm bringing a smile to those who are fighting for our country!

I joined the Letter writing team through Soldiers' Angels back in April and fell in love with the whole idea of writing. Being an English major, I've always had a passion for writing but I've become more accustomed to writing to strangers. Every time I receive mail, I have a smile on my face, especially when soldiers tell me how much they laughed at my letter writing.

I now am a Group Leader of the Letter Writing Team and couldn't be more proud! I hope to encourage new people to write and to make letter writing a hobby again :)

I am a volunteer with Soldiers Angels and am on multiple teams. I retired from a career after 29 years and was looking for a way to work with veterans. I am so lucky to be able to volunteer at the VA hospital here in Denver Colorado. I am so lucky to have contact with veterans and it is so rewarding. I look forward to each time I am at the hospital or at an event.

My story is a little bit different, in that I have been a volunteer for Soldiers' Angels since 2006. We have shipped over 60,000 Christmas stockings to Iraq and Afghanistan. Now we are supporting the VA's in Georgia as well as working with Google to provide laptops to our brave soldiers that have been wounded. This picture was taken May 22 at Trinka Davis Veterans Village in Carrollton, GA. The award is a proclamation from our governor.

I have been with Soldier's Angels since 2006 and my favorite part about this organization is the direct contact we get with each service person we support. I have served on the "Deployed" Team since 2006 and earlier this year joined the "Letter Writing Team" in an effort to extend my gratitude to more Soldier's.
It's a great group and I am Thankful!

I'm a volunteer at Soldiers' Angels and I love it, I love working with the men and women who protect our Country! It's a amazing organization to volunteer for, with all they do for the soldiers and their families, like letter writing, blanket making, packages, baby showers , and much more. A true organization that helps our heroes!

I saw information about Soldiers' Angels on Facebook and looked them up thinking, it was something I could do. And now I'm doing more than just writing letters, I 've adopted soldiers and feel like they have helped me more than I have them. It's a great opportunity to help service men and women and a wonderful organization to do it though. I have been very happy working with Soldiers Angels.

Joining Soldier's Angels has been one of the most rewarding thing I have done. My son as a formerly deployed soldier recommended Soldiers Angels to me when I wanted to do something for the troops. He said when deployed he was impressed by the care shown by Soldier's Angels. Good all around.

I just joined and so far I love it. I love the fact that I might be able to brighten a soldier's day with my silly antics and crazy life. This is a great organization doing great things for soldiers who may not have a family to send them things. We owe so much to them, and I am happy to participate and contribute in any way possible!

I just joined SA this year in March! I have always wanted to be part of a organization like this one. The LWT is a great team and everyone in this community is such wonderful people. You are not only meeting new people who are deployed but you are also meeting new people whom have the same interest as you! I enjoy writing letters to those who are deployed. Whenever I needed help or have questions to ask SA would always respond back few hours later. I am posting a picture of my first letter I wrote in the LWT! I am so happy I joined this organization!

I've been part of Soldier's Angels for about five years now. What a great organization that reaches out to help our Soldiers overseas, their families here in the states, and our Vets who still need that support! They have a support group through e-mail and facebook which gives you so many ideas what to include in our boxes which go overseas to soldiers. It's a great feeling to "adopt" a soldier overseas, and send them letters and boxes of goodies for them to share with other soldiers. It lets them know that we care, and they're not forgotten! Love this organization!!

I was a member of this fantastic organization years ago and loved it. Then my job was outsourced and I had to quit. I am now back again. There are many organizations out there but I would not have returned to this one had it not made a difference. Sending these packages out to our troops does your heart good. You are never alone there is a great support group to help whenever needed.

Been a volunteer for almost a year now. There's many areas to volunteer in, so many different options. Baking, letter writing, Chaplain support, adopt a soldier or a soldiers family, the list goes on. Great, great organization to be a part of, they love their volunteers!

I'm a longtime member (Since 2006) Of Soldier's Angels and appreciate the way they communicate weekly with all of us "Angels". I serve on both the Deployed and Letter Writing Team and each team has a leader that sends weekly emails with updates and opportunities to connect with others for ideas or questions.

I had been thinking about joining Soldiers' Angels for over a year. I saved the link in my email and went back to it from time to time. What made me finally do it was my college friend that was in the army, deployed a few times, and he was an instrumental part in the two organizations Carry the Fallen and Active Heroes. He and many others are working on reducing veteran suicides from 22 per day to ZERO. This has become a passion of mine and while my friend is no longer with us, he passed away from cancer last Fall, I told him that I would help carry on his mission. What a great way to help reduce veteran suicides by supporting soldiers while they are deployed. The experiences and living conditions are likely far from their normal life while stateside. Maybe, just maybe, reaching out to soldiers while they are deployed helps them transition once they return. I have made several friends from this organization and look forward to each and every letter/interaction I have with them. I encourage others to look into Soldiers' Angels, as there are so many ways you can get involved and, from experience, they truly make a difference in a soldier's life.

Soldiers' Angels offers me an opportunity to give back to those who give so much. I enjoy bringing a smile to the face of someone who is deployed far from home and am consistently amazed at how appreciative the Soldiers are to receive something as small as a card or letter. I am on the Card Plus Team, Deployed Adoption Team and Chaplain Support Team and enjoy the opportunities each of these teams provide to support our troops and veterans.

I was recently asked what I like best about being part of the Soldier's Angel's organization. I am part of the Chaplains' Team and the Women of Valor Team. What I like best is the fact that I get to send care packages and letters as a form of love and respect to total strangers that I will never meet. Our military men and women are out there taking care that me and my family are kept safe without expecting anything in return. We have a wonderful leader, Kaleena, who keeps us informed about the needs of all our troops, but also continually encourages us in our desire to help support our troops. This organization is a wonderful way to give back to the folks who give so much.

I began being a Soldiers' Angel about 2 months ago and am having a wonderful time. My questions as a newbie are being answered and I feel very confident in my participation in helping our military men and women through the Chaplains' Team. As a member of a many-generation military family, I know the hardships that the men and women go through being away from their families as well as being a family member who has experienced the loss of the presence of family members. Being part of this group helps me to show my appreciation in a small, but tangible, way each month for what our men and women do every day. I am so happy to be part of such a wonderful group of compassionate people.

It is very warding to make anyone smile during your day no matter what type of day they're having by making a soldier smile when they're in a war zone is priceless. Being a member for many years I have received many responses thanking me for taking the time out of my normal life to make there's a little more normal This organization helps connect and provide information for the soldiers and for us as the supporters which is invaluable

I have been a Soldier's Angel for years now and have had the fortune of supporting our soldiers who have been all over the world. I feel that this in addition to supporting Wreaths Across America Houston, this organization allows anyone to make as big or small of a difference as they can. I appreciate this organization in that they do all the leg work in finding soldiers who want to participate and provide us with guides in our journey to make the difference we want to make.
