Warm Feet for Warriors is Back!

February 08, 2018

Last year we launched a new campaign called Warm Feet for Warriors-- collecting new socks for deployed service members and veterans in VA Hospitals. We began with a small goal of collecting 1,000 pairs, and, thanks to all of you, we blew that goal out of the water and collected over 8,500 pairs!! Warm Feet is back in 2018 and we would love to collect at least 8,000 pairs once again. The collection will run from February 15 to April 30. Learn more about how you can participate in Soldiers' Angels Warm Feet for Warriors.

Can You Help Us Ship Popcorn to the Troops?

There is something special about popcorn. That salty, buttery taste is irresistible and brings back memories of movie theaters, carnivals, and all kinds of special events. We want to help our deployed service members savor those tasty memories! Thanks to our continued partnership with Trail's End, we have thousands of bags of popcorn to ship to deployed. But we need your help to get the popcorn shipped to deployed service members! Shipping one care package filled with popcorn costs just $18 and has a huge impact on the morale of our heroes and sheroes! Can you help us by covering the cost of shipping of one or more boxes?

Here Comes the Baby Brigade

We’ve been thinking for a while that it was time to give our Operation Top Knot team a fresh name. One that captures what the team was all about. We put the idea out there and asked our angels what they thought. They all pitched in name ideas and we took a vote: Soldiers’ Angels Baby Brigade was the winner! This name truly captures what the team is all about: military babies! Learn more about the Soldiers' Angels Baby Brigade Team and how you can help military babies.

Valentines for Veterans

Every year we receive thousands of Valentine’s Day cards addressed to service members and veterans. Sadly, since the cost to distribute these cards is so high, we are not able to provide enough funding to get these cards to our military and veteran heroes so they can feel the love. But this year you can help us spread the love! All you need to do is include $1 per Valentine you send! This will help us cover the cost of packing & mailing boxes of Valentine’s Day cards to deployed troops overseas & to VA Hospitals! Mail your cards & $1 per card to: Soldiers’ Angels 2700 NE Loop 410, Suite 310, San Antonio, Texas 78217. Learn more about Soldiers' Angels Valentines for Veterans.
