Holiday Help for Military Families

$7,665 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 64 people in 21 months
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, 1,100 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:

$35-50 will provide gifts for one child
$50 provides assistance for a holiday meal for a small family (feeds 4-5)
$100 provides assistance for a holiday meal for a large family (feeds 6+)
$200-$300 adopts a family to ensure they have food and gifts

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!

President and CEO


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. The organization gives 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 deployed troops, veterans, and their families, who are all dedicated to a powerful vision:

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

Thank you all for your incredible generosity for our military and veteran families. These families sacrifice so much for our freedom and our country-- we are very grateful that we are able to extend this token of gratitude to them. With your help, we were able to provide support to the families registered with our program that did not get adopted. Thank you again and may you have a wonderful and prosperous New Year.

Crunch time is here... Christmas Day is just 10 days away. We still have registered military and veteran families that have not been adopted and risk not having any type of holiday celebration. The money contributed to this campaign will allow Soldiers' Angels to rush last minute support to these families so they have something to celebrate on December 25th. Attached are photos of just a few of the MANY big smiles created by the Adopt-A-Family program last year!
