Soldiers' Angels

Founded in 2003 by the mother of two American soldiers, Soldiers' Angels is a national nonprofit that provides aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard; their families; and the growing veteran population. Hundreds of thousands of Angel volunteers assist veterans, as well as wounded and deployed personnel and their families, in a variety of ways.

The organization has 12 different teams. They range from the Angel Baker Team, which bakes homemade treats, to the Sewing and Crafting Team, which sew blankets for veterans, to the Deployed Adoptions Team, which “adopts” a service member. The team opportunities are virtual, so you can bake goodies, sew blankets, or adopt a soldier no matter where you live.

In addition to the virtual teams, Soldiers’ Angels also offers “boots on the ground” opportunities for volunteers within VA hospitals and medical centers. Volunteers and staff coordinate events and activities for veterans at VAs and have the opportunity to participate in patient visits to distribute comfort items.
