Words from a Soldier

  • It's not the "things" that are sent that matter to us, it's the thought. That's the power ALL of you have who take the time to send things. You can change the worst day into the best day, in a split second. - MP in Iraq

Three Options

  • Adopt a Soldier

  • Monetary Donations

  • Item Donations


Adopt a soldier l.jpg
Adopt a Soldier

  • When you adopt you are committing to sending a card or letter each week, and a minimum of 1 or 2 care packages a month. This is one of the most important things that can be done to help bring home a healthy hero; it is so very important for each of them to know they are loved and supported, and your letters and care packages prove just that. 

  • Care packages do not have to be expensive: you can put together your own (we have a detailed list of the most-requested items for you--snacks, hygiene products, and games or magazines). 


Monetary donations l.jpg
Monetary Donations

  • Angels have premade care packages that can be purchased.

  • As with all donations to Soldiers' Angels, your donation is tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Please consult your tax adviser for further information.

Please keep in mind that all food items must be in the manufacturer’s original packaging.

NO chocolate - 110 degree heat and chocolate do not mix well, though M&M’s are fine.

Ziploc bags make sure that potentially leaky items don’t make a mess during shipping, and service members use them to keep sand out of their things while in the desert.
