There are hundreds of families of deployed service members and wounded heroes across the country that are at risk of not having a proper holiday meal or gifts for their children. Our Adopt-A-Family program matches military families with volunteers to make sure there’s food on the table and gifts under the tree. Through this program, 1,000 families will be adopted, but hundreds more will apply that we will not be able to support without your help.

Through your generous donations on GoFundMe, families that are not adopted by our Angel volunteers will still receive holiday help from Soldiers' Angels .


Donations in the following amounts can help:

$25-35 will provide gifts for one child
$50 provides a holiday meal for a small family (feeds 4-5)
$100 provides a holiday meal for a large family (feeds 6+)
$200 adopts a family to ensure they have food and gifts

We also ask that you create your own campaign to help adopt some military families in need. Click HERE
to set up your own campaign. The families appreciate every donation and equally appreciate your help to spread awareness. None of our veterans nor their families should go without a hot meal this holiday season.

We thank you all for your support!

Soldiers' Angels provides aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, their families, and a growing veteran population. They give tens of thousands of Americans the opportunity to volunteer and to directly and personally show their support to our military and their families.

Founded in 2003, Soldiers' Angels began with one mother whose deployed son said he was one of the few soldiers receiving care packages. She gathered friends & neighbors to help send packages to his entire platoon and soon realized how much more aid was needed. Within just a few months, Soldiers' Angels went from a dedicated mother sending a few extra care packages and letters, to an Internet community with thousands of Angels worldwide.

To date, Soldiers' Angels has sent hundreds of thousands of care packages and millions of letters and cards to deployed service members. Volunteers and supporters have also made it possible for Soldiers' Angels to send tens of thousands of First Response Backpacks, voice-controlled/adaptive laptops to over 6,000 severely-wounded service members, and other technology that supports rehabilitation.

Soldiers' Angels is the largest volunteer-centered organization dedicated to supporting troops, veterans, and their families, who are all dedicated to a powerful mission:

May no soldier go unloved,
May no soldier walk alone,
May no soldier be forgotten,
Until they all come home.

With less than one week left until the holiday, we are still looking to provide holiday help to military families across the country. Your donations will go a long way to assist these families-- but please continue to help us spread the word so we may reach even more deserving families.

Thank you and Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Thank you all for your continued donations to the Soldiers' Angels Adopt-A-Family Program! In 2015, the program provided holiday assistance to hundreds of military families. I wanted to share some of the notes of gratitude we received last year. This is the difference your donation can make in the lives of these families!!

Thank you to those who have already supported for your generous donations!

The Soldiers' Angels Adopt-A-Family Program has received a record number of registrations this year from deserving military families who could use a little help to celebrate the holiday season. Although we have had hundreds of individuals and businesses who have stepped up to the plate and have adopted one or more families, we still have 145 families who have not yet been adopted. Combined, these families have 410 military children who may not have anything to celebrate this year.

Can you help us? Spread the word about the campaign to your friends, family, and followers. If you can give, please do. Every little bit will help us reach our goal.

Let's pool together and show our appreciation of these families for all they do to protect our country!

It isn't that much but when you are on Social Security you can't do that much. May you have a MERRY CHRISTMAS
