Soldiers' Angels Foundation is an all volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose sole mission is to support the brave men and women deployed away from family and friends in support of the War on Terror in Iraq, Afghanistan and wherever they raise the flag of the United States of America. We provide this support by sending cards, letters and care packages to soldiers who would otherwise receive little or no mail from home. In addition to our main mission, we also work tirelessly to provide our wounded soldiers with transitional backpacks, personal visits, phone calls, assistance with family arrangements, etc. and this is just the beginning.
As a registered Angel, you may get as involved as you are able. If you do not have a lot of time to devote, you can donate money to help the cause. You can also adopt a serviceman or woman in the Army, Navy, Marine Corp, Air Force or Coast Guard. If you are like many of us and just cannot get enough, you can also help to provide additional aid and comfort to our deployed military and their families through one or more of the various Soldiers' Angels ÂSupport TeamsÂ, such as:
-Blankets of Hope Â homemade blankets given to wounded soldiers
-Operation Top Knot Â handmade and special gifts for newborns of deployed soldiers and bubblegum cigars to the new dads
-E-Squad (Email Support) Â for soldiers who have access to computers
-Wounded TLC Team Â providing support for injured soldiers & their families
-Letter Writing Team Â sending letters & cards to soldiers awaiting adoption or who are in need of extra support
-Living Legends Â support for families of fallen Heroes with cards, living trees, and love.
-Christmas Program Â Homemade stockings, gifts, candies, and so much more for thousands of soldiers
-And many othersÂ
URGENT SPECIAL PROJECTS:
-Operation Armor Up - We purchase and send KEVLAR blankets to our soldiers in the field so that they can line their Humvee's and transport vehicles to protect them from bullets and shrapnel from exploding IED's. Have you saved a life today??? Donations urgently needed!
-Operation PC - This is an awesome program where we are trying to purchase PC's for wounded soldiers to use while in the hospital and take home with them so that they can keep in touch with their units back in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are working with a few local businesses and Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas on this worthwhile project... Donations urgently needed!
-Backpacks for the Wounded - We provide backpacks full of personal items, toiletries and love to our soldiers returning from battle injured and alone. Many times these soldiers are evacuated out without their personal items, and they cherish what we are able to provide. We include a special handmade blanket Â did you know this tradition goes back many, many years?
We are also sending these backpacks to a unit of heroes whose base camp was recently attacked, with some of the soldiers having lost all of their personal belongings in the ensuing fire. Donations urgently needed!!
-Operation Call Home - We always have many requests for calling cards so that our brave heroes can talk to their loved ones at home! Donations urgently needed!
RECENT LETTER FROM A COMMANDING OFFICER:
ÂÂ On behalf of the troopers of the I THINK WE CAN PUT A UNIT NUMBER IN HERE WITHOUT VIOLATING SECURITY POLICY, I would like to personally thank you for the tremendous support you have shown to our soldiers and their family members during our deployment to Operation Iraqi Freedom. The Division enjoyed numerous successes throughout our mission in Baghdad Culminating with the historic Iraqi elections on January 30th. I am convinced that these accomplishments would not have been possible without fabulous contributions such as yours. Not only were these gestures sincerely appreciated, but they rallied the morale of the soldiers, often at the most necessary times, and were absolutely critical to our mission completion. In other words, we could not have done it without you! Thank you again for your friendship and support. We are extremely grateful for your dedication to your country and to America's First TeamÂ Â
